GeForce GTX 285 1GB vs Radeon R7 370 2G

Intro

The GeForce GTX 285 1GB comes with a GPU clock speed of 648 MHz, and the 1024 MB of GDDR3 memory runs at 1242 MHz through a 512-bit bus. It also is made up of 240 Stream Processors, 80 Texture Address Units, and 32 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon R7 370 2G, which makes use of a 28 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 975 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM works at a frequency of 1400 MHz on this particular model. It features 1024 SPUs as well as 64 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in a second. It's calculated by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster 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 per second. This is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the 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 the graphics card could possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
