GeForce 8300 GS (OEM) vs GeForce GTX 560 Ti

Intro

The GeForce 8300 GS (OEM) has a GPU clock speed of 450 MHz, and the 128 MB of DDR2 RAM is set to run at 400 MHz through a 64-bit bus. It also features 8 SPUs, 4 TAUs, and 2 Raster Operation Units.

Compare that to the GeForce GTX 560 Ti, which makes use of a 40 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 822 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a frequency of 1002 MHz on this specific model. It features 384 SPUs along with 64 TAUs and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in one second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card can possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
