GeForce GTX 850M vs Radeon HD 3650 256MB

Intro

The GeForce GTX 850M features a GPU core clock speed of 876 MHz, and the 2048 MB of DDR3 memory runs at 1000 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also features 640 SPUs, 40 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon HD 3650 256MB, which has core clock speeds of 725 MHz on the GPU, and 800 MHz on the 256 MB of DDR2 RAM. It features 120(24x5) SPUs as well as 8 TAUs and 4 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, the faster 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 are processed in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the card will be at handling 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 can possibly write to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out 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 drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
