GeForce GT 340 1GB vs Radeon R7 M260X

Intro

The GeForce GT 340 1GB comes with a GPU core clock speed of 550 MHz, and the 1024 MB of GDDR5 memory runs at 850 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also features 96 Stream Processors, 32 TAUs, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon R7 M260X, which has a GPU core clock speed of 825 MHz, and 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory running at 1000 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is made up of 384 Stream Processors, 24 TAUs, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon R7 M260X should perform just a bit faster than the GeForce GT 340 1GB overall. (explain)

Radeon R7 M260X 64000 MB/sec
GeForce GT 340 1GB 54400 MB/sec
Difference: 9600 (18%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R7 M260X is a small bit (about 13%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GT 340 1GB. (explain)

Radeon R7 M260X 19800 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GT 340 1GB 17600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 2200 (13%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon R7 M260X is the winner, by a large margin. (explain)

Radeon R7 M260X 6600 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GT 340 1GB 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 data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

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

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