GeForce 8400 GS 512MB vs Radeon RX 560

Intro

The GeForce 8400 GS 512MB features a core clock speed of 650 MHz and a DDR2 memory speed of 400 MHz. It also features a 64-bit bus, and uses a 80 nm design. It features 16 SPUs, 8 Texture Address Units, and 4 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon RX 560, which features GPU clock speed of 1175 MHz, and 4096 MB of GDDR5 memory running at 7000 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also features 1024 Stream Processors, 64 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce 8400 GS 512MB 40 Watts
Radeon RX 560 80 Watts
Difference: 40 Watts (100%)

Memory Bandwidth

The Radeon RX 560, in theory, should perform quite a bit faster than the GeForce 8400 GS 512MB overall. (explain)

Radeon RX 560 114688 MB/sec
GeForce 8400 GS 512MB 6400 MB/sec
Difference: 108288 (1692%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 560 should be a lot (more or less 1346%) better at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce 8400 GS 512MB. (explain)

Radeon RX 560 75200 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 8400 GS 512MB 5200 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 70000 (1346%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high resolution is important to you, then the Radeon RX 560 is a better choice, by far. (explain)

Radeon RX 560 18800 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 8400 GS 512MB 2600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 16200 (623%)

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 largest amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card can possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the core clock speed. 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 - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
