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 set the core frequency at 550 MHz. The GDDR3 memory works at a frequency of 800 MHz on this card. It features 32 SPUs as well as 16 Texture Address Units and 8 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon R7 M265, which comes with GPU core speed of 725 MHz, and 2048 MB of DDR3 memory running at 1000 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is comprised of 384 SPUs, 24 TAUs, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

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

Texel Rate

The Radeon R7 M265 will be quite a bit (about 98%) faster with regards to 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 will be quite a bit (approximately 32%) more effective at FSAA than the GeForce 9500 GT 512MB GDDR3, and should be capable of handling higher resolutions without losing too much performance. (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 largest amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
