GeForce GT 240 GDDR5 vs Radeon VII

Intro

The GeForce GT 240 GDDR5 has a core clock frequency of 550 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 850 MHz. It also features a 128-bit memory bus, and uses a 40 nm design. It features 96 SPUs, 32 TAUs, and 8 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon VII, which comes with GPU clock speed of 1400 MHz, and 16384 MB of HBM2 memory running at 1000 MHz through a 4096-bit bus. It also is made up of 3840 Stream Processors, 240 Texture Address Units, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GT 240 GDDR5 70 Watts
Radeon VII 295 Watts
Difference: 225 Watts (321%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon VII should be 1828% faster than the GeForce GT 240 GDDR5 in general, due to its greater bandwidth. (explain)

Radeon VII 1048576 MB/sec
GeForce GT 240 GDDR5 54400 MB/sec
Difference: 994176 (1828%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon VII will be quite a bit (approximately 1809%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GT 240 GDDR5. (explain)

Radeon VII 336000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GT 240 GDDR5 17600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 318400 (1809%)

Pixel Rate

If using high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon VII is superior to the GeForce GT 240 GDDR5, by a large margin. (explain)

Radeon VII 89600 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GT 240 GDDR5 4400 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 85200 (1936%)

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 maximum amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the video card could possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
