GeForce 8300 GS (OEM) vs Radeon RX 560

Intro

The GeForce 8300 GS (OEM) features core speeds of 450 MHz on the GPU, and 400 MHz on the 128 MB of DDR2 memory. It features 8 SPUs along with 4 TAUs and 2 ROPs.

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

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the largest amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher 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 applied in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate also depends on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
