GeForce GTX 480 vs Radeon R7 370 2G

Intro

The GeForce GTX 480 features clock speeds of 700 MHz on the GPU, and 924 MHz on the 1536 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 480 SPUs as well as 60 TAUs and 48 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all of that to the Radeon R7 370 2G, which comes with GPU core speed of 975 MHz, and 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM set to run at 1400 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is made up of 1024 SPUs, 64 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon R7 370 2G should be 1% quicker than the GeForce GTX 480 in general, because of its greater bandwidth. (explain)

Radeon R7 370 2G 179200 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 480 177408 MB/sec
Difference: 1792 (1%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R7 370 2G should be a lot (approximately 49%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the GeForce GTX 480. (explain)

Radeon R7 370 2G 62400 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 480 42000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 20400 (49%)

Pixel Rate

If using high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 480 is superior to the Radeon R7 370 2G, but it probably won't make a huge difference. (explain)

GeForce GTX 480 33600 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R7 370 2G 31200 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 2400 (8%)

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: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface within a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This number is worked out 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 applied per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the number 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 output rate is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
