GeForce 8800 GT 512MB vs Radeon RX 5600

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GT 512MB makes use of a 65 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 600 MHz. The GDDR3 RAM works at a frequency of 900 MHz on this specific model. It features 112 SPUs along with 56 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 5600, which has a clock speed of 1375 MHz and a GDDR6 memory speed of 1500 MHz. It also uses a 192-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 7 nm design. It is comprised of 2048 SPUs, 128 Texture Address Units, and 64 ROPs.

GeForce 8800 GT 512MB 57600 MB/sec
Difference: 237312 (412%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 5600 should be quite a bit (approximately 424%) better at AF than the GeForce 8800 GT 512MB. (explain)

Radeon RX 5600 176000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 8800 GT 512MB 33600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 142400 (424%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon RX 5600 should be much (approximately 817%) more effective at full screen anti-aliasing than the GeForce 8800 GT 512MB, and will be capable of handling higher screen resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

Radeon RX 5600 88000 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 8800 GT 512MB 9600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 78400 (817%)

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: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better 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 applied in one second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the video card could possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
