GeForce GTX 950M vs Radeon HD 5570

Intro

The GeForce GTX 950M uses a 28 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 914 MHz. The DDR3 memory works at a speed of 1000 MHz on this specific card. It features 640 SPUs as well as 40 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon HD 5570, which makes use of a 40 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 650 MHz. The DDR3 memory runs at a speed of 900 MHz on this particular card. It features 400(80x5) SPUs as well as 20 Texture Address Units and 8 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per 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 graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card could possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
