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 frequency of 250 MHz. It also features a 192-bit bus, and makes use of a 55 nm design. It is made up of 48 SPUs, 24 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon R9 M280X, which features a clock speed of 900 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1375 MHz. It also makes use of a 128-bit bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It is made up of 896 SPUs, 56 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Both cards have the same power consumption.

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon R9 M280X will be 633% faster than the GeForce GT 130 in general, because of its greater data rate. (explain)

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

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 M280X should be much (more or less 320%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GT 130. (explain)

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

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon R9 M280X is the winner, by a large margin. (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 (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, 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 can be applied per second. This is worked out by multiplying the total 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 applied in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card could possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as 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 bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
