GeForce GTS 150 vs Radeon R9 M265X

Intro

The GeForce GTS 150 comes with core speeds of 740 MHz on the GPU, and 500 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR3 memory. It features 128 SPUs along with 64 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon R9 M265X, which has clock speeds of 575 MHz on the GPU, and 1125 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 640 SPUs along with 40 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon R9 M265X should be 125% faster than the GeForce GTS 150 overall, because of its greater data rate. (explain)

Radeon R9 M265X 72000 MB/sec
GeForce GTS 150 32000 MB/sec
Difference: 40000 (125%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTS 150 should be a lot (more or less 106%) more effective at AF than the Radeon R9 M265X. (explain)

GeForce GTS 150 47360 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R9 M265X 23000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 24360 (106%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTS 150 should be much (more or less 29%) more effective at anti-aliasing than the Radeon R9 M265X, and also able to handle higher resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

GeForce GTS 150 11840 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R9 M265X 9200 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 2640 (29%)

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 maximum amount of data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in a second. It is calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core 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 processed in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the clock 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 rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
