GeForce 8600 GT 1GB GDDR3 vs Radeon RX 5700

Intro

The GeForce 8600 GT 1GB GDDR3 comes with core clock speeds of 540 MHz on the GPU, and 700 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR3 RAM. It features 32 SPUs as well as 16 Texture Address Units and 8 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 5700, which comes with GPU clock speed of 1465 MHz, and 8096 MB of GDDR6 RAM running at 1750 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is made up of 2304 SPUs, 144 Texture Address Units, and 64 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the video card can possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs 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 rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
