Geforce GTX 760 vs Radeon R9 280X

Intro

The Geforce GTX 760 has a GPU clock speed of 980 MHz, and the 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory runs at 1502 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is comprised of 1152 SPUs, 96 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all of that to the Radeon R9 280X, which comes with core clock speeds of 850 MHz on the GPU, and 1500 MHz on the 3072 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 2048 SPUs as well as 128 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the max amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate 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 outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant 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.

Best gtx-760.......for power Efficency & Power

Anonymous says:

If you don't care about physx, cuda, etc.. And that the power consumption and heat doesn't bother you, go with the r9 280. If you care go with gtx 760

GreenerThanGrass says:

It's clear, R9 280x WINS.

r9 frame rate + mantle 🙂

john petter says:

250w ?.. AMD clowning as usual ..even the light years more powerful GTX 980 is only 165w

thetruth says:

gtx 760 wins cuz we have better driver support cuz amd has doo doo driver support.
