GeForce GT 210 vs Radeon R7 M260

Intro

The GeForce GT 210 uses a 40 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 589 MHz. The DDR3 memory runs at a speed of 800 MHz on this specific card. It features 16 SPUs as well as 8 TAUs and 4 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon R7 M260, which has a clock frequency of 715 MHz and a DDR3 memory speed of 1000 MHz. It also makes use of a 64-bit bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It is comprised of 384 SPUs, 24 TAUs, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

As far as performance goes, the Radeon R7 M260 should in theory be much better than the GeForce GT 210 overall. (explain)

Radeon R7 M260 16000 MB/sec
GeForce GT 210 12800 MB/sec
Difference: 3200 (25%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R7 M260 is quite a bit (more or less 264%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GT 210. (explain)

Radeon R7 M260 17160 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GT 210 4712 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 12448 (264%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R7 M260 will be much (approximately 143%) faster with regards to AA than the GeForce GT 210, and able to handle higher screen resolutions without slowing down too much. (explain)

Radeon R7 M260 5720 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GT 210 2356 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 3364 (143%)

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 information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the faster 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 texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the video card could possibly write to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
