GeForce 930M vs Radeon R5 M230

Intro

The GeForce 930M has a clock speed of 928 MHz and a DDR3 memory frequency of 900 MHz. It also makes use of a 64-bit bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It is made up of 384 SPUs, 24 TAUs, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all of that to the Radeon R5 M230, which comes with a core clock frequency of 780 MHz and a DDR3 memory frequency of 1000 MHz. It also features a 64-bit bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It is made up of 320 SPUs, 20 TAUs, and 4 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon R5 M230 should perform just a bit faster than the GeForce 930M overall. (explain)

Radeon R5 M230 16000 MB/sec
GeForce 930M 14400 MB/sec
Difference: 1600 (11%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 930M will be much (more or less 43%) better at anisotropic filtering than the Radeon R5 M230. (explain)

GeForce 930M 22272 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R5 M230 15600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 6672 (43%)

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce 930M is the winner, and very much so. (explain)

GeForce 930M 7424 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R5 M230 3120 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 4304 (138%)

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 information (measured in MB per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface within a second. It's worked out by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the video card could possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
