GeForce 8800 GT 512MB vs Radeon RX 5700

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GT 512MB has a GPU core clock speed of 600 MHz, and the 512 MB of GDDR3 memory is set to run at 900 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is made up of 112 Stream Processors, 56 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Compare that to the Radeon RX 5700, which has a GPU core clock speed of 1465 MHz, and 8096 MB of GDDR6 memory running at 14000 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is made up of 2304 Stream Processors, 144 TAUs, and 64 ROPs.

Radeon RX 5700 458752 MB/sec
GeForce 8800 GT 512MB 57600 MB/sec
Difference: 401152 (696%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 5700 should be much (approximately 528%) faster with regards to AF than the GeForce 8800 GT 512MB. (explain)

Radeon RX 5700 210960 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 8800 GT 512MB 33600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 177360 (528%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon RX 5700 is a better choice, by far. (explain)

Radeon RX 5700 93760 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 8800 GT 512MB 9600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 84160 (877%)

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 data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface within a second. It's calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
