GeForce 8800 GT 512MB vs GeForce RTX 2070

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GT 512MB makes use of a 65 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 600 MHz. The GDDR3 memory runs at a frequency of 900 MHz on this particular model. It features 112 SPUs as well as 56 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the GeForce RTX 2070, which features a core clock speed of 1410 MHz and a GDDR6 memory speed of 14 MHz. It also features a 256-bit memory bus, and uses a 12 nm design. It is comprised of 2304 SPUs, 144 Texture Address Units, and 64 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the video card can possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
