GeForce GTX 480 vs Radeon R7 370 4G

Intro

The GeForce GTX 480 features a core clock frequency of 700 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 924 MHz. It also features a 384-bit memory bus, and uses a 40 nm design. It features 480 SPUs, 60 Texture Address Units, and 48 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all of that to the Radeon R7 370 4G, which makes use of a 28 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 975 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM is set to run at a speed of 1400 MHz on this card. It features 1024 SPUs along with 64 Texture Address Units and 32 ROPs.

GeForce GTX 480 177408 MB/sec
Difference: 1792 (1%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R7 370 4G should be much (approximately 49%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTX 480. (explain)

Radeon R7 370 4G 62400 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 480 42000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 20400 (49%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 480 is superior to the Radeon R7 370 4G, but not by far. (explain)

GeForce GTX 480 33600 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R7 370 4G 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: Bandwidth is the max amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher 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 texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units 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 applied in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs 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 lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
