GeForce GT 220 GDDR3 vs Radeon R7 M265

Intro

The GeForce GT 220 GDDR3 makes use of a 40 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 625 MHz. The GDDR3 RAM is set to run at a frequency of 1012 MHz on this model. It features 48 SPUs along with 16 Texture Address Units and 8 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specifications 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 makes use of a 28 nm design. It is made up of 384 SPUs, 24 Texture Address Units, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

The GeForce GT 220 GDDR3 should in theory perform a small bit faster than the Radeon R7 M265 overall. (explain)

GeForce GT 220 GDDR3 32384 MB/sec
Radeon R7 M265 32000 MB/sec
Difference: 384 (1%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R7 M265 is much (approximately 74%) more effective at texture filtering than the GeForce GT 220 GDDR3. (explain)

Radeon R7 M265 17400 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GT 220 GDDR3 10000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 7400 (74%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R7 M265 will be a little bit (about 16%) more effective at AA than the GeForce GT 220 GDDR3, and will be able to handle higher screen resolutions more effectively. (explain)

Radeon R7 M265 5800 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GT 220 GDDR3 5000 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 800 (16%)

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 largest amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in one second. The number is calculated 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 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 texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This figure is worked out 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 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 maximum amount of pixels the video card could possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of colour 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 output rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
