Radeon R9 M265X 72000 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 960M 64000 MB/sec
Difference: 8000 (13%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 960M is a lot (approximately 91%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the Radeon R9 M265X. (explain)

GeForce GTX 960M 43840 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R9 M265X 23000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 20840 (91%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 960M should be a lot (about 91%) faster with regards to anti-aliasing than the Radeon R9 M265X, and should be able to handle higher resolutions without slowing down too much. (explain)

GeForce GTX 960M 17536 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R9 M265X 9200 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 8336 (91%)

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 data (measured in MB per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, 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 write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
