GeForce 8800 GT 1GB 57600 MB/sec
Difference: 4480 (8%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) should be quite a bit (about 24%) more effective at texture filtering than the GeForce 8800 GT 1GB. (explain)

GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) 41600 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 8800 GT 1GB 33600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 8000 (24%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) is a small bit (about 8%) better at full screen anti-aliasing than the GeForce 8800 GT 1GB, and should be able to handle higher resolutions without slowing down too much. (explain)

GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) 10400 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 8800 GT 1GB 9600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 800 (8%)

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 max amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher 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 texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This figure is calculated 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 in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics card can possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also 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, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
