GeForce 8300 GS (OEM) vs Radeon HD 5830

Intro

The GeForce 8300 GS (OEM) comes with a GPU core speed of 450 MHz, and the 128 MB of DDR2 memory runs at 400 MHz through a 64-bit bus. It also is made up of 8 SPUs, 4 TAUs, and 2 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon HD 5830, which uses a 40 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 800 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a frequency of 1000 MHz on this card. It features 1120(224x5) SPUs along with 56 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Radeon HD 5830 44800 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 8300 GS (OEM) 1800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 43000 (2389%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon HD 5830 will be much (more or less 1322%) more effective at AA than the GeForce 8300 GS (OEM), and should be able to handle higher screen resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

Radeon HD 5830 12800 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 8300 GS (OEM) 900 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 11900 (1322%)

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 (counted in MB per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This 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 in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the graphics card can possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of ROPs 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 output rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
