GeForce GT 240 GDDR5 vs Radeon VII

Intro

The GeForce GT 240 GDDR5 makes use of a 40 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 550 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM works at a frequency of 850 MHz on this particular card. It features 96 SPUs along with 32 Texture Address Units and 8 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon VII, which features clock speeds of 1400 MHz on the GPU, and 1000 MHz on the 16384 MB of HBM2 RAM. It features 3840 SPUs as well as 240 Texture Address Units and 64 ROPs.

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

Memory Bandwidth

As far as performance goes, the Radeon VII should in theory be quite a bit superior to the GeForce GT 240 GDDR5 in general. (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 (about 1809%) faster with regards to AF 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 running with a high screen resolution is important to you, then the Radeon VII is the winner, 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 max amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface within a second. It is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. 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 texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total number of 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 per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the graphics card could possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called 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, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
