GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 vs Radeon R7 360

Intro

The GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 uses a 65 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 576 MHz. The GDDR3 memory runs at a speed of 999 MHz on this specific model. It features 216 SPUs as well as 72 TAUs and 28 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon R7 360, which has 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 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon R7 360 100 Watts
GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 202 Watts
Difference: 102 Watts (102%)

Memory Bandwidth

The GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 should theoretically be just a bit faster than the Radeon R7 360 in general. (explain)

GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 111888 MB/sec
Radeon R7 360 104000 MB/sec
Difference: 7888 (8%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R7 360 is much (about 22%) more effective at texture filtering than the GeForce GTX 260 Core 216. (explain)

Radeon R7 360 50400 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 41472 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 8928 (22%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high screen resolution is important to you, then the Radeon R7 360 is the winner, but it probably won't make a huge difference. (explain)

Radeon R7 360 16800 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 16128 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 672 (4%)

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 (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in a second. It is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher 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 texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the graphics 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 that the graphics chip can possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the core clock speed. 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 lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
