GeForce GTX 860M vs Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 2GB

Intro

The GeForce GTX 860M comes with core speeds of 797 MHz on the GPU, and 1000 MHz on the 4096 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 1152 SPUs along with 96 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Compare that to the Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 2GB, which uses a 40 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 650 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM runs at a speed of 1000 MHz on this specific model. It features 480 SPUs as well as 24 Texture Address Units and 8 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GTX 860M 45 Watts
Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 2GB 50 Watts
Difference: 5 Watts (11%)

Memory Bandwidth

Both cards have exactly the same memory bandwidth, so theoretically they should perform the same. (explain)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 860M should be a lot (about 390%) more effective at AF than the Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 2GB. (explain)

GeForce GTX 860M 76512 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 2GB 15600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 60912 (390%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high screen resolution is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 860M is the winner, by a large margin. (explain)

GeForce GTX 860M 12752 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 2GB 5200 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 7552 (145%)

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 largest amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface within a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better 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 figure is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the graphics 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 video card could possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
