GeForce GTX 960M vs Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 2GB

Intro

The GeForce GTX 960M uses a 28 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 1096 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM is set to run at a speed of 1000 MHz on this specific card. It features 640 SPUs along with 40 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 2GB, which comes with core speeds of 650 MHz on the GPU, and 1000 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 480 SPUs along with 24 Texture Address Units and 8 ROPs.

Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 2GB 50 Watts
GeForce GTX 960M 65 Watts
Difference: 15 Watts (30%)

Memory Bandwidth

Both cards have exactly the same memory bandwidth, so in theory they should perform the same. (explain)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 960M should be a lot (more or less 181%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 2GB. (explain)

GeForce GTX 960M 43840 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 2GB 15600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 28240 (181%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 960M should be much (more or less 237%) better at full screen anti-aliasing than the Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 2GB, and able to handle higher screen resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

GeForce GTX 960M 17536 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 2GB 5200 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 12336 (237%)

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 maximum amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in one second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core 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 amount of pixels the graphics card 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 amount of ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
