GeForce GT 210 vs Radeon R5 M230

Intro

The GeForce GT 210 features a core clock frequency of 589 MHz and a DDR3 memory frequency of 800 MHz. It also uses a 64-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 40 nm design. It features 16 SPUs, 8 Texture Address Units, and 4 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon R5 M230, which uses a 28 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 780 MHz. The DDR3 RAM is set to run at a speed of 1000 MHz on this specific model. It features 320 SPUs as well as 20 TAUs and 4 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon R5 M230 will be 25% faster than the GeForce GT 210 in general, because of its higher data rate. (explain)

Radeon R5 M230 16000 MB/sec
GeForce GT 210 12800 MB/sec
Difference: 3200 (25%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R5 M230 will be quite a bit (approximately 231%) more effective at texture filtering than the GeForce GT 210. (explain)

Radeon R5 M230 15600 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GT 210 4712 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 10888 (231%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R5 M230 will be a lot (approximately 32%) more effective at full screen anti-aliasing than the GeForce GT 210, and capable of handling higher resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

Radeon R5 M230 3120 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GT 210 2356 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 764 (32%)

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 data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface within a second. It is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher 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 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 higher this number, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
