GeForce 8800 Ultra vs GeForce GTX 1630

Intro

The GeForce 8800 Ultra has a GPU clock speed of 612 MHz, and the 768 MB of GDDR3 RAM runs at 1080 MHz through a 384-bit bus. It also is made up of 128 SPUs, 64 Texture Address Units, and 24 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the GeForce GTX 1630, which has a clock frequency of 1740 MHz and a GDDR6 memory frequency of 1500 MHz. It also makes use of a 64-bit bus, and makes use of a 12 nm design. It features 512 SPUs, 32 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the max amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses 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 high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the clock speed of the card. 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 fill rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
