GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 vs Radeon R7 360

Intro

The GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 has a clock speed of 576 MHz and a GDDR3 memory speed of 999 MHz. It also uses a 448-bit bus, and makes use of a 65 nm design. It is made up of 216 SPUs, 72 TAUs, and 28 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon R7 360, which uses a 28 nm design. AMD has set the core speed at 1050 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a frequency of 1625 MHz on this particular model. It features 768 SPUs along with 48 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 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 high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the 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 that the graphics card could possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka 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 memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
