GeForce 8800 GTX vs GeForce GTX 1630

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GTX has a clock speed of 575 MHz and a GDDR3 memory speed of 900 MHz. It also uses a 384-bit bus, and makes use of a 90 nm design. It features 128 SPUs, 64 Texture Address Units, and 24 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the GeForce GTX 1630, which uses a 12 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 1740 MHz. The GDDR6 RAM runs at a frequency of 1500 MHz on this particular model. It features 512 SPUs as well as 32 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

GeForce 8800 GTX 86400 MB/sec
Difference: 11904 (14%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1630 should be quite a bit (approximately 51%) more effective at AF than the GeForce 8800 GTX. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1630 55680 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 8800 GTX 36800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 18880 (51%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 1630 is the winner, by a large margin. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1630 27840 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 8800 GTX 13800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 14040 (102%)

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 largest amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface within a second. It's worked out by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the better 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the 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 write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
