GeForce 9500 GT 1GB GDDR3 vs Radeon R7 M265

Intro

The GeForce 9500 GT 1GB GDDR3 features a clock frequency of 550 MHz and a GDDR3 memory frequency of 800 MHz. It also uses a 128-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 55 nm design. It is comprised of 32 SPUs, 16 TAUs, and 8 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon R7 M265, which has a clock speed of 725 MHz and a DDR3 memory speed of 1000 MHz. It also makes use of a 128-bit bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It is comprised of 384 SPUs, 24 Texture Address Units, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

The Radeon R7 M265, in theory, should perform quite a bit faster than the GeForce 9500 GT 1GB GDDR3 overall. (explain)

Radeon R7 M265 32000 MB/sec
GeForce 9500 GT 1GB GDDR3 25600 MB/sec
Difference: 6400 (25%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R7 M265 is quite a bit (more or less 98%) more effective at texture filtering than the GeForce 9500 GT 1GB GDDR3. (explain)

Radeon R7 M265 17400 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 9500 GT 1GB GDDR3 8800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 8600 (98%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R7 M265 should be much (more or less 32%) better at FSAA than the GeForce 9500 GT 1GB GDDR3, and will be capable of handling higher screen resolutions while still performing well. (explain)

Radeon R7 M265 5800 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 9500 GT 1GB 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: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the bandwidth is, the faster 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 processed in one second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in a second.

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