GeForce 8600 GS (OEM) vs Radeon RX 5600

Intro

The GeForce 8600 GS (OEM) uses a 80 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 540 MHz. The DDR2 RAM runs at a frequency of 400 MHz on this specific card. It features 32 SPUs along with 16 TAUs and 8 ROPs.

Compare that to the Radeon RX 5600, which has GPU core speed of 1375 MHz, and 6144 MB of GDDR6 memory running at 1500 MHz through a 192-bit bus. It also is comprised of 2048 Stream Processors, 128 Texture Address Units, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface within a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the card will be at 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 chip could possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends 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.
