GeForce 8800 GT 1GB vs Radeon Vega Frontier Edition

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GT 1GB makes use of a 65 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 600 MHz. The GDDR3 RAM is set to run at a speed of 900 MHz on this particular model. It features 112 SPUs along with 56 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition, which comes with a clock speed of 1382 MHz and a HBM2 memory speed of 1890 MHz. It also features a 2048-bit bus, and uses a 14 nm design. It features 4096 SPUs, 256 Texture Address Units, and 64 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface within a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
