GeForce 8800 GTX vs Radeon RX 560

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GTX features a GPU core speed of 575 MHz, and the 768 MB of GDDR3 memory runs at 900 MHz through a 384-bit bus. It also features 128 Stream Processors, 64 TAUs, and 24 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 560, which comes with a clock speed of 1175 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 7000 MHz. It also uses a 128-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 14 nm design. It features 1024 SPUs, 64 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, 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 can be applied in one second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, 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 most pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
