GeForce 9500 GT 512MB GDDR3 vs Radeon R7 M265

Intro

The GeForce 9500 GT 512MB GDDR3 makes use of a 55 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 550 MHz. The GDDR3 RAM runs at a frequency of 800 MHz on this model. It features 32 SPUs as well as 16 TAUs and 8 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon R7 M265, which uses a 28 nm design. AMD has set the core speed at 725 MHz. The DDR3 memory works at a speed of 1000 MHz on this model. It features 384 SPUs as well as 24 Texture Address Units and 8 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon R7 M265 should be 25% quicker than the GeForce 9500 GT 512MB GDDR3 in general, due to its higher data rate. (explain)

Radeon R7 M265 32000 MB/sec
GeForce 9500 GT 512MB GDDR3 25600 MB/sec
Difference: 6400 (25%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R7 M265 should be a lot (approximately 98%) more effective at AF than the GeForce 9500 GT 512MB GDDR3. (explain)

Radeon R7 M265 17400 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 9500 GT 512MB GDDR3 8800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 8600 (98%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R7 M265 is quite a bit (approximately 32%) more effective at FSAA than the GeForce 9500 GT 512MB GDDR3, and also will be able to handle higher screen resolutions without slowing down too much. (explain)

Radeon R7 M265 5800 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 9500 GT 512MB GDDR3 4400 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 1400 (32%)

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 (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface within a second. It's worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, 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 texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This is calculated by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the graphics 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 most pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
