GeForce GTX 480 vs Radeon R7 370 4G

Intro

The GeForce GTX 480 features a core clock speed of 700 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 924 MHz. It also makes use of a 384-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 40 nm design. It is made up of 480 SPUs, 60 TAUs, and 48 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon R7 370 4G, which comes with clock speeds of 975 MHz on the GPU, and 1400 MHz on the 4096 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 1024 SPUs along with 64 Texture Address Units and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon R7 370 4G 110 Watts
GeForce GTX 480 250 Watts
Difference: 140 Watts (127%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon R7 370 4G will be 1% quicker than the GeForce GTX 480 overall, due to its greater data rate. (explain)

Radeon R7 370 4G 179200 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 480 177408 MB/sec
Difference: 1792 (1%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R7 370 4G is quite a bit (about 49%) faster with regards to texture 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 the winner, but it probably won't make a huge difference. (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 largest amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total 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 the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on many 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.
