GeForce GTX 950M vs Radeon R7 M260X

Intro

The GeForce GTX 950M comes with a GPU clock speed of 914 MHz, and the 2048 MB of DDR3 memory runs at 1000 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also features 640 SPUs, 40 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon R7 M260X, which makes use of a 28 nm design. AMD has set the core speed at 825 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a frequency of 1000 MHz on this specific model. It features 384 SPUs as well as 24 TAUs and 8 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

The Radeon R7 M260X, in theory, should perform quite a bit faster than the GeForce GTX 950M overall. (explain)

Radeon R7 M260X 64000 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 950M 32000 MB/sec
Difference: 32000 (100%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 950M is much (more or less 85%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the Radeon R7 M260X. (explain)

GeForce GTX 950M 36560 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R7 M260X 19800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 16760 (85%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 950M is quite a bit (approximately 122%) faster with regards to anti-aliasing than the Radeon R7 M260X, and should be able to handle higher resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

GeForce GTX 950M 14624 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R7 M260X 6600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 8024 (122%)

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 transferred across the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen 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 number of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, 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 number of pixels the video card could possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
