GeForce GT 450 (OEM) vs Radeon R7 360

Intro

The GeForce GT 450 (OEM) uses a 40 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 790 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a speed of 1000 MHz on this particular model. It features 144 SPUs as well as 24 Texture Address Units and 24 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon R7 360, which comes with core speeds of 1050 MHz on the GPU, and 1625 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 768 SPUs along with 48 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon R7 360 100 Watts
GeForce GT 450 (OEM) 106 Watts
Difference: 6 Watts (6%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon R7 360 will be 8% faster than the GeForce GT 450 (OEM) overall, because of its greater bandwidth. (explain)

Radeon R7 360 104000 MB/sec
GeForce GT 450 (OEM) 96000 MB/sec
Difference: 8000 (8%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R7 360 should be a lot (about 166%) faster with regards to AF than the GeForce GT 450 (OEM). (explain)

Radeon R7 360 50400 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GT 450 (OEM) 18960 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 31440 (166%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GT 450 (OEM) is just a bit (approximately 13%) more effective at AA than the Radeon R7 360, and should be capable of handling higher resolutions while still performing well. (explain)

GeForce GT 450 (OEM) 18960 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R7 360 16800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 2160 (13%)

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 max amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface within a second. It's calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
