GeForce 8800 GT 1GB vs Radeon Vega Frontier Edition

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GT 1GB has a core clock speed of 600 MHz and a GDDR3 memory frequency of 900 MHz. It also features a 256-bit memory bus, and uses a 65 nm design. It is comprised of 112 SPUs, 56 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition, which makes use of a 14 nm design. AMD has set the core speed at 1382 MHz. The HBM2 RAM runs at a frequency of 1890 MHz on this specific model. It features 4096 SPUs along with 256 TAUs and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce 8800 GT 1GB 105 Watts
Radeon Vega Frontier Edition 300 Watts
Difference: 195 Watts (186%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition should perform quite a bit faster than the GeForce 8800 GT 1GB overall. (explain)

Radeon Vega Frontier Edition 495452 MB/sec
GeForce 8800 GT 1GB 57600 MB/sec
Difference: 437852 (760%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon Vega Frontier Edition should be quite a bit (more or less 953%) better at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce 8800 GT 1GB. (explain)

Radeon Vega Frontier Edition 353792 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 8800 GT 1GB 33600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 320192 (953%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon Vega Frontier Edition is a better choice, by far. (explain)

Radeon Vega Frontier Edition 88448 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 8800 GT 1GB 9600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 78848 (821%)

Please note that the above 'benchmarks' are all just theoretical - the results were calculated based on the card's specifications, and real-world performance may (and probably will) vary at least a bit.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface within a second. It's worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics chip could possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
