GeForce GT 430 (OEM) vs Radeon R7 M265

Intro

The GeForce GT 430 (OEM) makes use of a 40 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 700 MHz. The GDDR3 RAM runs at a speed of 900 MHz on this specific card. It features 96 SPUs as well as 16 Texture Address Units and 4 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon R7 M265, which comes with a core clock frequency of 725 MHz and a DDR3 memory speed of 1000 MHz. It also features a 128-bit bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It features 384 SPUs, 24 Texture Address Units, and 8 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Performance-wise, the Radeon R7 M265 should in theory be just a bit superior to the GeForce GT 430 (OEM) in general. (explain)

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

Texel Rate

The Radeon R7 M265 will be a lot (more or less 55%) more effective at texture filtering than the GeForce GT 430 (OEM). (explain)

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

Pixel Rate

If using high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon R7 M265 is superior to the GeForce GT 430 (OEM), and very much so. (explain)

Radeon R7 M265 5800 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GT 430 (OEM) 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 largest amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The better 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 one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount 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 is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
