GeForce 8800 GT 1GB vs GeForce GTX 460 (OEM)

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GT 1GB has a GPU core speed of 600 MHz, and the 1024 MB of GDDR3 RAM runs at 900 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is made up of 112 SPUs, 56 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specs to the GeForce GTX 460 (OEM), which comes with a clock frequency of 650 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 850 MHz. It also uses a 256-bit bus, and makes use of a 40 nm design. It is made up of 336 SPUs, 56 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics card could possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
