GeForce GT 430 1GB vs Radeon R7 M265

Intro

The GeForce GT 430 1GB uses a 40 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 700 MHz. The GDDR3 memory is set to run at a speed of 900 MHz on this model. It features 96 SPUs along with 16 TAUs and 4 ROPs.

Compare that to the Radeon R7 M265, which features GPU core speed of 725 MHz, and 2048 MB of DDR3 memory running at 1000 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is made up of 384 Stream Processors, 24 Texture Address Units, and 8 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon R7 M265 should be 11% faster than the GeForce GT 430 1GB in general, because of its greater bandwidth. (explain)

Radeon R7 M265 32000 MB/sec
GeForce GT 430 1GB 28800 MB/sec
Difference: 3200 (11%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R7 M265 should be much (about 55%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the GeForce GT 430 1GB. (explain)

Radeon R7 M265 17400 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GT 430 1GB 11200 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 6200 (55%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon R7 M265 is superior to the GeForce GT 430 1GB, and very much so. (explain)

Radeon R7 M265 5800 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GT 430 1GB 2800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 3000 (107%)

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 (measured in MB per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface within a second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card can possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
