GeForce GTX 480 vs Radeon R9 380 4G

Intro

The GeForce GTX 480 features a GPU clock speed of 700 MHz, and the 1536 MB of GDDR5 memory is set to run at 924 MHz through a 384-bit bus. It also is made up of 480 SPUs, 60 TAUs, and 48 Raster Operation Units.

Compare that to the Radeon R9 380 4G, which comes with GPU core speed of 970 MHz, and 4096 MB of GDDR5 RAM running at 1425 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is made up of 1792 SPUs, 112 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon R9 380 4G should perform a little bit faster than the GeForce GTX 480 in general. (explain)

Radeon R9 380 4G 182400 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 480 177408 MB/sec
Difference: 4992 (3%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 380 4G will be quite a bit (more or less 159%) more effective at texture filtering than the GeForce GTX 480. (explain)

Radeon R9 380 4G 108640 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 480 42000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 66640 (159%)

Pixel Rate

If running with 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 R9 380 4G 31040 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 2560 (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 (in units of MB per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, the faster 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 figure is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the graphics 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 maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly record to its local memory in one 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 outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
