GeForce GTX 660 Ti vs Radeon R9 M295X

Intro

The GeForce GTX 660 Ti uses a 28 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 915 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM runs at a frequency of 1500 MHz on this model. It features 1344 SPUs along with 112 Texture Address Units and 24 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon R9 M295X, which comes with a clock frequency of 750 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1375 MHz. It also features a 256-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It features 2048 SPUs, 128 Texture Address Units, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon R9 M295X 125 Watts
GeForce GTX 660 Ti 150 Watts
Difference: 25 Watts (20%)

Memory Bandwidth

As far as performance goes, the Radeon R9 M295X should in theory be much better than the GeForce GTX 660 Ti overall. (explain)

Radeon R9 M295X 176000 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 660 Ti 144000 MB/sec
Difference: 32000 (22%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 660 Ti should be a small bit (approximately 7%) faster with regards to AF than the Radeon R9 M295X. (explain)

GeForce GTX 660 Ti 102480 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R9 M295X 96000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 6480 (7%)

Pixel Rate

If using high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon R9 M295X is superior to the GeForce GTX 660 Ti, but it probably won't make a huge difference. (explain)

Radeon R9 M295X 24000 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 660 Ti 21960 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 2040 (9%)

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

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the video card can possibly write to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
