GeForce 825M vs Radeon R7 M260

Intro

The GeForce 825M uses a 28 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 850 MHz. The DDR3 memory is set to run at a frequency of 900 MHz on this card. It features 384 SPUs along with 16 Texture Address Units and 8 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all of that to the Radeon R7 M260, which comes with GPU core speed of 715 MHz, and 2048 MB of DDR3 RAM set to run at 1000 MHz through a 64-bit bus. It also is comprised of 384 Stream Processors, 24 TAUs, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon R7 M260 will be 11% faster than the GeForce 825M in general, due to its higher bandwidth. (explain)

Radeon R7 M260 16000 MB/sec
GeForce 825M 14400 MB/sec
Difference: 1600 (11%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R7 M260 is quite a bit (about 26%) better at AF than the GeForce 825M. (explain)

Radeon R7 M260 17160 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 825M 13600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 3560 (26%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce 825M is a little bit (more or less 19%) more effective at full screen anti-aliasing than the Radeon R7 M260, and will be capable of handling higher resolutions more effectively. (explain)

GeForce 825M 6800 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R7 M260 5720 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 1080 (19%)

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 (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high 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 amount of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the graphics card could possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
