GeForce GT 430 (OEM) vs Radeon R7 M260X

Intro

The GeForce GT 430 (OEM) has a GPU core speed of 700 MHz, and the 2048 MB of GDDR3 RAM is set to run at 900 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also features 96 Stream Processors, 16 Texture Address Units, and 4 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon R7 M260X, which uses a 28 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 825 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a frequency of 1000 MHz on this specific model. It features 384 SPUs along with 24 Texture Address Units and 8 ROPs.

Radeon R7 M260X 64000 MB/sec
GeForce GT 430 (OEM) 28800 MB/sec
Difference: 35200 (122%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R7 M260X should be quite a bit (about 77%) more effective at AF than the GeForce GT 430 (OEM). (explain)

Radeon R7 M260X 19800 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GT 430 (OEM) 11200 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 8600 (77%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R7 M260X should be much (approximately 136%) faster with regards to FSAA than the GeForce GT 430 (OEM), and will be capable of handling higher screen resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

Radeon R7 M260X 6600 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GT 430 (OEM) 2800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 3800 (136%)

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 megabytes per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface within a second. It is calculated by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the graphics 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 that the graphics chip can possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines 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 fill rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
