GeForce 8300 GS (OEM) vs Radeon RX 560

Intro

The GeForce 8300 GS (OEM) features core clock speeds of 450 MHz on the GPU, and 400 MHz on the 128 MB of DDR2 memory. It features 8 SPUs as well as 4 TAUs and 2 Rasterization Operator Units.

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

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the largest amount of information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the 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 per second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total 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 processed per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics card could possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel 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.
