Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Performance-wise, the Radeon R9 M270X should theoretically be quite a bit superior to the GeForce GT 210 overall. (explain)

Radeon R9 M270X 72000 MB/sec
GeForce GT 210 12800 MB/sec
Difference: 59200 (463%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 M270X is much (about 515%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GT 210. (explain)

Radeon R9 M270X 29000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GT 210 4712 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 24288 (515%)

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon R9 M270X is superior to the GeForce GT 210, by far. (explain)

Radeon R9 M270X 11600 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GT 210 2356 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 9244 (392%)

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 information (measured in MB per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the 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 amount of pixels the video card can possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
