GeForce 8800 GT 1GB vs Radeon R9 M370X

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GT 1GB makes use of a 65 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 600 MHz. The GDDR3 memory works at a frequency of 900 MHz on this specific card. It features 112 SPUs as well as 56 Texture Address Units 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 memory runs at a frequency of 1125 MHz on this specific model. It features 640 SPUs as well as 40 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon R9 M370X should be much faster than the GeForce 8800 GT 1GB in general. (explain)

Radeon R9 M370X 72000 MB/sec
GeForce 8800 GT 1GB 57600 MB/sec
Difference: 14400 (25%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 8800 GT 1GB will be just a bit (more or less 5%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the Radeon R9 M370X. (explain)

GeForce 8800 GT 1GB 33600 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R9 M370X 32000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 1600 (5%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R9 M370X is quite a bit (approximately 33%) faster with regards to full screen anti-aliasing than the GeForce 8800 GT 1GB, and should be able to handle higher resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

Radeon R9 M370X 12800 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 8800 GT 1GB 9600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 3200 (33%)

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 moved across the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's bus 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 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, the faster 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
