GeForce GTX 870M vs Radeon R7 360

Intro

The GeForce GTX 870M features a core clock speed of 941 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1000 MHz. It also features a 192-bit bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It is comprised of 1344 SPUs, 112 TAUs, and 24 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon R7 360, which comes with clock speeds of 1050 MHz on the GPU, and 1625 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 768 SPUs as well as 48 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the largest amount of data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
