GeForce 8600 GT 512MB DDR2 vs Radeon RX 5700 XT

Intro

The GeForce 8600 GT 512MB DDR2 features core clock speeds of 540 MHz on the GPU, and 400 MHz on the 512 MB of DDR2 memory. It features 32 SPUs along with 16 TAUs and 8 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 5700 XT, which comes with core speeds of 1605 MHz on the GPU, and 14000 MHz on the 8096 MB of GDDR6 memory. It features 2560 SPUs as well as 160 Texture Address Units and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce 8600 GT 512MB DDR2 47 Watts
Radeon RX 5700 XT 225 Watts
Difference: 178 Watts (379%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon RX 5700 XT will be 3484% faster than the GeForce 8600 GT 512MB DDR2 overall, due to its higher data rate. (explain)

Radeon RX 5700 XT 458752 MB/sec
GeForce 8600 GT 512MB DDR2 12800 MB/sec
Difference: 445952 (3484%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 5700 XT should be quite a bit (more or less 2872%) more effective at texture filtering than the GeForce 8600 GT 512MB DDR2. (explain)

Radeon RX 5700 XT 256800 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 8600 GT 512MB DDR2 8640 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 248160 (2872%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon RX 5700 XT should be quite a bit (about 2278%) faster with regards to FSAA than the GeForce 8600 GT 512MB DDR2, and capable of handling higher screen resolutions while still performing well. (explain)

Radeon RX 5700 XT 102720 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 8600 GT 512MB DDR2 4320 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 98400 (2278%)

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 information (in units of MB per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type memory, the result 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core clock 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 per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics chip can possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
