GeForce GT 210 vs Radeon R9 M270X

Intro

The GeForce GT 210 uses a 40 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 589 MHz. The DDR3 memory is set to run at a frequency of 800 MHz on this model. It features 16 SPUs as well as 8 TAUs and 4 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare that to the Radeon R9 M270X, which features a clock frequency of 725 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1125 MHz. It also makes use of a 128-bit memory bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It features 640 SPUs, 40 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon R9 M270X should perform much faster than the GeForce GT 210 in general. (explain)

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

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 M270X is quite a bit (approximately 515%) better at 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

The Radeon R9 M270X should be quite a bit (about 392%) better at full screen anti-aliasing than the GeForce GT 210, and should be capable of handling higher screen resolutions while still performing well. (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: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
