GeForce 9800 GT 1GB vs Radeon R7 M260X

Intro

The GeForce 9800 GT 1GB features a core clock frequency of 600 MHz and a GDDR3 memory speed of 900 MHz. It also makes use of a 256-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 65/55 nm design. It is comprised of 112 SPUs, 56 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Compare all 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 Texture Address Units and 8 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Performance-wise, the Radeon R7 M260X should theoretically be a small bit superior to the GeForce 9800 GT 1GB in general. (explain)

Radeon R7 M260X 64000 MB/sec
GeForce 9800 GT 1GB 57600 MB/sec
Difference: 6400 (11%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 9800 GT 1GB should be much (about 70%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the Radeon R7 M260X. (explain)

GeForce 9800 GT 1GB 33600 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R7 M260X 19800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 13800 (70%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high screen resolution is important to you, then the GeForce 9800 GT 1GB is the winner, and very much so. (explain)

GeForce 9800 GT 1GB 9600 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R7 M260X 6600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 3000 (45%)

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 information (counted in MB per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most 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 number of colour ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate also depends on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
