GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 vs Radeon R7 M260

Intro

The GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 features a GPU core speed of 576 MHz, and the 896 MB of GDDR3 memory runs at 999 MHz through a 448-bit bus. It also is made up of 216 SPUs, 72 TAUs, and 28 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon R7 M260, which features GPU core speed of 715 MHz, and 2048 MB of DDR3 RAM set to run at 1000 MHz through a 64-bit bus. It also features 384 Stream Processors, 24 Texture Address Units, and 8 ROPs.

Radeon R7 M260 17160 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 24312 (142%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 should be a lot (about 182%) better at anti-aliasing than the Radeon R7 M260, and also capable of handling higher screen resolutions better. (explain)

GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 16128 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R7 M260 5720 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 10408 (182%)

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 max amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the better 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 applied in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
