GeForce 8800 GT 1GB vs GeForce 8800 GTS (G80) 320MB

Intro

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

Compare all that to the GeForce 8800 GTS (G80) 320MB, which features core clock speeds of 513 MHz on the GPU, and 792 MHz on the 320 MB of GDDR3 RAM. It features 96 SPUs as well as 48 Texture Address Units and 20 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce 8800 GT 1GB 105 Watts
GeForce 8800 GTS (G80) 320MB 143 Watts
Difference: 38 Watts (36%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the GeForce 8800 GTS (G80) 320MB will be 10% faster than the GeForce 8800 GT 1GB in general, because of its greater bandwidth. (explain)

GeForce 8800 GTS (G80) 320MB 63360 MB/sec
GeForce 8800 GT 1GB 57600 MB/sec
Difference: 5760 (10%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 8800 GT 1GB is quite a bit (approximately 36%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the GeForce 8800 GTS (G80) 320MB. (explain)

GeForce 8800 GT 1GB 33600 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 8800 GTS (G80) 320MB 24624 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 8976 (36%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce 8800 GTS (G80) 320MB is just a bit (more or less 7%) faster with regards to FSAA than the GeForce 8800 GT 1GB, and also will be capable of handling higher resolutions better. (explain)

GeForce 8800 GTS (G80) 320MB 10260 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 8800 GT 1GB 9600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 660 (7%)

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 data (in units of MB per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface within a second. It is calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core 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 applied in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the video card could possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the core 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 fill rate also depends on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
