GeForce 9500 GT 1GB GDDR3 vs Radeon R9 M265X

Intro

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

Compare that to the Radeon R9 M265X, which comes with GPU clock speed of 575 MHz, and 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory running at 1125 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is made up of 640 Stream Processors, 40 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon R9 M265X should be 181% quicker than the GeForce 9500 GT 1GB GDDR3 overall, because of its greater data rate. (explain)

Radeon R9 M265X 72000 MB/sec
GeForce 9500 GT 1GB GDDR3 25600 MB/sec
Difference: 46400 (181%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 M265X will be quite a bit (more or less 161%) more effective at texture filtering than the GeForce 9500 GT 1GB GDDR3. (explain)

Radeon R9 M265X 23000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 9500 GT 1GB GDDR3 8800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 14200 (161%)

Pixel Rate

If running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon R9 M265X is the winner, by far. (explain)

Radeon R9 M265X 9200 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 9500 GT 1GB GDDR3 4400 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 4800 (109%)

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 (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics card could possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as 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 of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
