GeForce 8800 GT 512MB vs Radeon RX 5700

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GT 512MB has a core clock frequency of 600 MHz and a GDDR3 memory speed of 900 MHz. It also uses a 256-bit memory bus, and uses a 65 nm design. It is comprised of 112 SPUs, 56 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 5700, which has core clock speeds of 1465 MHz on the GPU, and 14000 MHz on the 8096 MB of GDDR6 RAM. It features 2304 SPUs along with 144 Texture Address Units and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

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

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