GeForce GTX 860M vs Radeon HD 5670

Intro

The GeForce GTX 860M comes with a GPU clock speed of 797 MHz, and the 4096 MB of GDDR5 memory is set to run at 1000 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is made up of 1152 SPUs, 96 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon HD 5670, which features core speeds of 775 MHz on the GPU, and 1000 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 400(80x5) SPUs as well as 20 TAUs and 8 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GTX 860M 45 Watts
Radeon HD 5670 61 Watts
Difference: 16 Watts (36%)

Memory Bandwidth

Both cards have exactly the same bandwidth, so in theory they should have the same performance. (explain)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 860M should be much (about 394%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the Radeon HD 5670. (explain)

GeForce GTX 860M 76512 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 5670 15500 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 61012 (394%)

Pixel Rate

If using 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 5670 6200 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 6552 (106%)

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 (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface within a second. It's worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, 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 texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the video card can possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core clock speed. 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 also depends on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
