GeForce 9600 GT 1GB vs Radeon R9 M265X

Intro

The GeForce 9600 GT 1GB makes use of a 65/55 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 650 MHz. The GDDR3 RAM is set to run at a frequency of 900 MHz on this card. It features 64 SPUs as well as 32 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare that to the Radeon R9 M265X, which has a core clock speed of 575 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1125 MHz. It also makes use of a 128-bit bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It is made up of 640 SPUs, 40 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon R9 M265X will be 25% faster than the GeForce 9600 GT 1GB in general, due to its higher data rate. (explain)

Radeon R9 M265X 72000 MB/sec
GeForce 9600 GT 1GB 57600 MB/sec
Difference: 14400 (25%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 M265X will be a little bit (approximately 11%) faster with regards to AF than the GeForce 9600 GT 1GB. (explain)

Radeon R9 M265X 23000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 9600 GT 1GB 20800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 2200 (11%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high resolution is important to you, then the GeForce 9600 GT 1GB is the winner, but it probably won't make a huge difference. (explain)

GeForce 9600 GT 1GB 10400 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R9 M265X 9200 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 1200 (13%)

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 maximum amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card can 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 clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
