GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) vs Radeon R9 M370X

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) uses a 65 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 650 MHz. The GDDR3 memory works at a frequency of 970 MHz on this specific model. It features 128 SPUs along with 64 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon R9 M370X, which makes use of a 28 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 800 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM is set to run at a speed of 1125 MHz on this particular card. It features 640 SPUs as well as 40 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

The GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) is a lot (approximately 30%) better at texture filtering than the Radeon R9 M370X. (explain)

GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) 41600 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R9 M370X 32000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 9600 (30%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R9 M370X should be quite a bit (approximately 23%) more effective at FSAA than the GeForce 8800 GTS (G92), and will be able to handle higher resolutions better. (explain)

Radeon R9 M370X 12800 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) 10400 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 2400 (23%)

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 information (measured in MB per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that are applied per 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 graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
