GeForce GTX 560 vs Radeon R7 M260X

Intro

The GeForce GTX 560 makes use of a 40 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 810 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a frequency of 1001 MHz on this specific model. It features 336 SPUs along with 56 TAUs and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon R7 M260X, which comes with GPU clock speed of 825 MHz, and 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory set to run at 1000 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also features 384 Stream Processors, 24 TAUs, and 8 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Performance-wise, the GeForce GTX 560 should in theory be much better than the Radeon R7 M260X in general. (explain)

GeForce GTX 560 128128 MB/sec
Radeon R7 M260X 64000 MB/sec
Difference: 64128 (100%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 560 should be a lot (approximately 129%) more effective at AF than the Radeon R7 M260X. (explain)

GeForce GTX 560 45360 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R7 M260X 19800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 25560 (129%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 560 is a better choice, by far. (explain)

GeForce GTX 560 25920 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R7 M260X 6600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 19320 (293%)

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 max amount of data (counted in MB per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that 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 ROPs by the the core clock speed. 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 is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
