GeForce GTS 450 1GB vs Radeon R7 M260X

Intro

The GeForce GTS 450 1GB has a clock speed of 783 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 902 MHz. It also uses a 128-bit memory bus, and uses a 40 nm design. It is made up of 192 SPUs, 32 Texture Address Units, and 16 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon R7 M260X, which features GPU core speed of 825 MHz, and 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory running at 1000 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also features 384 Stream Processors, 24 Texture Address Units, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon R7 M260X will be 11% quicker than the GeForce GTS 450 1GB in general, because of its greater bandwidth. (explain)

Radeon R7 M260X 64000 MB/sec
GeForce GTS 450 1GB 57728 MB/sec
Difference: 6272 (11%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTS 450 1GB is quite a bit (approximately 27%) better at AF than the Radeon R7 M260X. (explain)

GeForce GTS 450 1GB 25056 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R7 M260X 19800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 5256 (27%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTS 450 1GB is a lot (more or less 90%) more effective at FSAA than the Radeon R7 M260X, and should be capable of handling higher resolutions without slowing down too much. (explain)

GeForce GTS 450 1GB 12528 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R7 M260X 6600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 5928 (90%)

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 (measured in megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the video card can possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
