GeForce 8800 GT 1GB vs GeForce 8800 GTS (G92)

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GT 1GB has a GPU clock speed of 600 MHz, and the 1024 MB of GDDR3 memory is set to run at 900 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also features 112 Stream Processors, 56 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the GeForce 8800 GTS (G92), which has a core clock frequency of 650 MHz and a GDDR3 memory speed of 970 MHz. It also makes use of a 256-bit memory bus, and uses a 65 nm design. It is comprised of 128 SPUs, 64 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce 8800 GT 1GB 105 Watts
GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) 135 Watts
Difference: 30 Watts (29%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) should be 8% faster than the GeForce 8800 GT 1GB in general, due to its greater bandwidth. (explain)

GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) 62080 MB/sec
GeForce 8800 GT 1GB 57600 MB/sec
Difference: 4480 (8%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) should be a lot (about 24%) better at AF 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

If using a high resolution is important to you, then the GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) is superior to the GeForce 8800 GT 1GB, but not by far. (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: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of data (counted in MB per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses 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, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the video card could possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs 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 fill 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 get to the max fill rate.
