GeForce GTX 950 vs Radeon HD 4890 1GB

Intro

The GeForce GTX 950 has core speeds of 1024 MHz on the GPU, and 1652 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 768 SPUs as well as 48 TAUs and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon HD 4890 1GB, which uses a 55 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 1000 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a speed of 975 MHz on this particular card. It features 800(160x5) SPUs along with 40 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

GeForce GTX 950 105728 MB/sec
Difference: 19072 (18%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 950 should be quite a bit (about 23%) better at texture filtering than the Radeon HD 4890 1GB. (explain)

GeForce GTX 950 49152 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 4890 1GB 40000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 9152 (23%)

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 950 is a better choice, by far. (explain)

GeForce GTX 950 32768 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 4890 1GB 16000 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 16768 (105%)

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 (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in a second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core clock 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 applied 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 ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
