GeForce 9800 GTX vs Radeon R7 M260X

Intro

The GeForce 9800 GTX features a clock speed of 675 MHz and a GDDR3 memory frequency of 1100 MHz. It also makes use of a 256-bit bus, and makes use of a 65 nm design. It is made up of 128 SPUs, 64 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Compare that to the Radeon R7 M260X, which has core clock speeds of 825 MHz on the GPU, and 1000 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 384 SPUs as well as 24 TAUs and 8 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the GeForce 9800 GTX will be 10% quicker than the Radeon R7 M260X in general, due to its higher data rate. (explain)

GeForce 9800 GTX 70400 MB/sec
Radeon R7 M260X 64000 MB/sec
Difference: 6400 (10%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 9800 GTX is a lot (more or less 118%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the Radeon R7 M260X. (explain)

GeForce 9800 GTX 43200 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R7 M260X 19800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 23400 (118%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce 9800 GTX will be quite a bit (approximately 64%) faster with regards to AA than the Radeon R7 M260X, and will be able to handle higher screen resolutions better. (explain)

GeForce 9800 GTX 10800 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R7 M260X 6600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 4200 (64%)

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: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in one second. It is worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the video card will be at 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 that the graphics card can possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called 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, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
