GeForce GTX 870M vs Radeon R7 360

Intro

The GeForce GTX 870M comes with a GPU core clock speed of 941 MHz, and the 3072 MB of GDDR5 RAM runs at 1000 MHz through a 192-bit bus. It also is comprised of 1344 SPUs, 112 Texture Address Units, and 24 Raster Operation Units.

Compare that to the Radeon R7 360, which comes with a GPU core clock speed of 1050 MHz, and 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM running at 1625 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is comprised of 768 SPUs, 48 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, 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 texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the graphics card can possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs 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 rate is also dependant on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
