GeForce GTS 150 vs Radeon R7 M265

Intro

The GeForce GTS 150 uses a 55 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 740 MHz. The GDDR3 memory runs at a frequency of 500 MHz on this card. It features 128 SPUs along with 64 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon R7 M265, which has GPU clock speed of 725 MHz, and 2048 MB of DDR3 RAM set to run at 1000 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is made up of 384 SPUs, 24 Texture Address Units, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Both cards have the exact same memory bandwidth, so in theory they should perform exactly the same. (explain)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTS 150 will be a lot (about 172%) more effective at texture filtering than the Radeon R7 M265. (explain)

GeForce GTS 150 47360 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R7 M265 17400 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 29960 (172%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTS 150 is quite a bit (about 104%) better at FSAA than the Radeon R7 M265, and will be able to handle higher resolutions while still performing well. (explain)

GeForce GTS 150 11840 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R7 M265 5800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 6040 (104%)

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 maximum amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, the better 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 are processed in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the video card can possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
