GeForce 9800 GTX+ vs Radeon R9 M270X

Intro

The GeForce 9800 GTX+ features core clock speeds of 738 MHz on the GPU, and 1100 MHz on the 512 MB of GDDR3 memory. It features 128 SPUs as well as 64 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all of that to the Radeon R9 M270X, which comes with core speeds of 725 MHz on the GPU, and 1125 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 640 SPUs as well as 40 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon R9 M270X should be 2% quicker than the GeForce 9800 GTX+ overall, due to its higher data rate. (explain)

Radeon R9 M270X 72000 MB/sec
GeForce 9800 GTX+ 70400 MB/sec
Difference: 1600 (2%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 9800 GTX+ will be much (about 63%) better at texture filtering than the Radeon R9 M270X. (explain)

GeForce 9800 GTX+ 47232 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R9 M270X 29000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 18232 (63%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce 9800 GTX+ will be just a bit (about 2%) better at AA than the Radeon R9 M270X, and also should be capable of handling higher resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

GeForce 9800 GTX+ 11808 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R9 M270X 11600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 208 (2%)

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 moved over the external memory interface in one second. The number is calculated by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR RAM, 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 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 processed per second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the video card can possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core 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 fill rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
