GeForce 8600 GT 1GB GDDR3 vs GeForce RTX 2070

Intro

The GeForce 8600 GT 1GB GDDR3 has core speeds of 540 MHz on the GPU, and 700 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR3 RAM. It features 32 SPUs along with 16 TAUs and 8 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare that to the GeForce RTX 2070, which features GPU clock speed of 1410 MHz, and 8192 MB of GDDR6 RAM set to run at 14 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also features 2304 Stream Processors, 144 Texture Address Units, and 64 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce 8600 GT 1GB GDDR3 47 Watts
GeForce RTX 2070 175 Watts
Difference: 128 Watts (272%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the GeForce RTX 2070 should be a lot faster than the GeForce 8600 GT 1GB GDDR3 in general. (explain)

GeForce RTX 2070 458752 MB/sec
GeForce 8600 GT 1GB GDDR3 22400 MB/sec
Difference: 436352 (1948%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce RTX 2070 will be quite a bit (about 2250%) better at AF than the GeForce 8600 GT 1GB GDDR3. (explain)

GeForce RTX 2070 203040 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 8600 GT 1GB GDDR3 8640 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 194400 (2250%)

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce RTX 2070 is a better choice, by far. (explain)

GeForce RTX 2070 90240 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 8600 GT 1GB GDDR3 4320 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 85920 (1989%)

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: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card can possibly record 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 speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
