GeForce GTX 965M vs Radeon R7 M260X

Intro

The GeForce GTX 965M has a core clock speed of 944 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1000 MHz. It also makes use of a 128-bit bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It is comprised of 1024 SPUs, 64 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon R7 M260X, which uses a 28 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 825 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a speed of 1000 MHz on this card. It features 384 SPUs as well as 24 Texture Address Units and 8 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Both cards have exactly the same bandwidth, so theoretically they should have identical performance. (explain)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 965M will be a lot (about 205%) better at texture filtering than the Radeon R7 M260X. (explain)

GeForce GTX 965M 60416 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R7 M260X 19800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 40616 (205%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 965M is quite a bit (more or less 358%) faster with regards to full screen anti-aliasing than the Radeon R7 M260X, and also will be able to handle higher resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

GeForce GTX 965M 30208 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R7 M260X 6600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 23608 (358%)

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 maximum amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the card will be at 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 graphics card can 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 colour ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
