GeForce GTX 950M vs Radeon HD 5570

Intro

The GeForce GTX 950M features clock speeds of 914 MHz on the GPU, and 1000 MHz on the 2048 MB of DDR3 memory. It features 640 SPUs along with 40 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon HD 5570, which has a clock speed of 650 MHz and a DDR3 memory frequency of 900 MHz. It also uses a 128-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 40 nm design. It is made up of 400(80x5) SPUs, 20 Texture Address Units, and 8 ROPs.

Radeon HD 5570 28800 MB/sec
Difference: 3200 (11%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 950M will be much (more or less 181%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the Radeon HD 5570. (explain)

GeForce GTX 950M 36560 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 5570 13000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 23560 (181%)

Pixel Rate

If running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 950M is a better choice, by a large margin. (explain)

GeForce GTX 950M 14624 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 5570 5200 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 9424 (181%)

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 (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in a second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster 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 in one 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 higher the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the clock 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 output rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
