GeForce GT 340 vs Radeon R7 M260X

Intro

The GeForce GT 340 has core speeds of 550 MHz on the GPU, and 850 MHz on the 512 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 96 SPUs as well as 32 Texture Address Units and 8 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon R7 M260X, which has a clock speed of 825 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1000 MHz. It also uses a 128-bit memory bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It is made up of 384 SPUs, 24 Texture Address Units, and 8 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon R7 M260X should perform a bit faster than the GeForce GT 340 overall. (explain)

Radeon R7 M260X 64000 MB/sec
GeForce GT 340 54400 MB/sec
Difference: 9600 (18%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R7 M260X is a small bit (about 13%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GT 340. (explain)

Radeon R7 M260X 19800 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GT 340 17600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 2200 (13%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R7 M260X will be a lot (more or less 50%) more effective at full screen anti-aliasing than the GeForce GT 340, and should be capable of handling higher screen resolutions more effectively. (explain)

Radeon R7 M260X 6600 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GT 340 4400 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 2200 (50%)

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 largest amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface within a second. It's worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's 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 can be applied per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card can possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
