GeForce GT 130 vs Radeon R9 M280X

Intro

The GeForce GT 130 comes with a core clock frequency of 500 MHz and a DDR2 memory speed of 250 MHz. It also makes use of a 192-bit bus, and uses a 55 nm design. It is made up of 48 SPUs, 24 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all of that to the Radeon R9 M280X, which makes use of a 28 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 900 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a frequency of 1375 MHz on this particular model. It features 896 SPUs along with 56 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Both cards have the same power consumption.

Memory Bandwidth

The Radeon R9 M280X should in theory perform quite a bit faster than the GeForce GT 130 in general. (explain)

Radeon R9 M280X 88000 MB/sec
GeForce GT 130 12000 MB/sec
Difference: 76000 (633%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 M280X should be quite a bit (about 320%) faster with regards to AF than the GeForce GT 130. (explain)

Radeon R9 M280X 50400 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GT 130 12000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 38400 (320%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R9 M280X will be much (about 80%) better at anti-aliasing than the GeForce GT 130, and should be able to handle higher screen resolutions without slowing down too much. (explain)

Radeon R9 M280X 14400 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GT 130 8000 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 6400 (80%)

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 maximum amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core 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 per second.

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