GeForce 8300 GS (OEM) vs GeForce GTX 560 Ti

Intro

The GeForce 8300 GS (OEM) has a clock frequency of 450 MHz and a DDR2 memory speed of 400 MHz. It also makes use of a 64-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 80 nm design. It features 8 SPUs, 4 Texture Address Units, and 2 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the GeForce GTX 560 Ti, which has GPU core speed of 822 MHz, and 1024 MB of GDDR5 RAM running at 1002 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is made up of 384 Stream Processors, 64 Texture Address Units, and 32 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface within a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the graphics card can possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
