GeForce GT 430 (OEM) vs Radeon R7 M265

Intro

The GeForce GT 430 (OEM) features clock speeds of 700 MHz on the GPU, and 900 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR3 memory. It features 96 SPUs along with 16 Texture Address Units and 4 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon R7 M265, which features a clock frequency of 725 MHz and a DDR3 memory speed of 1000 MHz. It also makes use of a 128-bit bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It is made up of 384 SPUs, 24 TAUs, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

The Radeon R7 M265 should theoretically perform a bit faster than the GeForce GT 430 (OEM) overall. (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 quite a bit (more or less 55%) faster with regards to 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 max amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR RAM, 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 anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the graphics 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 that the graphics card could possibly write to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
