GeForce 8800 Ultra vs Radeon RX 560

Intro

The GeForce 8800 Ultra features clock speeds of 612 MHz on the GPU, and 1080 MHz on the 768 MB of GDDR3 RAM. It features 128 SPUs along with 64 Texture Address Units and 24 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 560, which features a clock frequency of 1175 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 7000 MHz. It also makes use of a 128-bit bus, and uses a 14 nm design. It is made up of 1024 SPUs, 64 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 560 80 Watts
GeForce 8800 Ultra 171 Watts
Difference: 91 Watts (114%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon RX 560 will be 11% quicker than the GeForce 8800 Ultra in general, due to its higher data rate. (explain)

Radeon RX 560 114688 MB/sec
GeForce 8800 Ultra 103680 MB/sec
Difference: 11008 (11%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 560 should be a lot (approximately 92%) more effective at AF than the GeForce 8800 Ultra. (explain)

Radeon RX 560 75200 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 8800 Ultra 39168 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 36032 (92%)

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon RX 560 is the winner, by a large margin. (explain)

Radeon RX 560 18800 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 8800 Ultra 14688 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 4112 (28%)

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 across the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus 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 memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

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

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