GeForce 8800 GT 512MB vs Radeon RX 5700 XT

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GT 512MB comes with a clock frequency of 600 MHz and a GDDR3 memory frequency of 900 MHz. It also features a 256-bit bus, and uses a 65 nm design. It is made up of 112 SPUs, 56 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 5700 XT, which has a core clock frequency of 1605 MHz and a GDDR6 memory frequency of 14000 MHz. It also uses a 256-bit memory bus, and uses a 7 nm design. It features 2560 SPUs, 160 Texture Address Units, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's 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 is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics card can possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
