GeForce GTX 960M vs Radeon R5 M330

Intro

The GeForce GTX 960M makes use of a 28 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 1096 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a speed of 1000 MHz on this card. It features 640 SPUs as well as 40 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon R5 M330, which uses a 28 nm design. AMD has set the core speed at 1030 MHz. The DDR3 memory runs at a speed of 900 MHz on this specific card. It features 320 SPUs along with 20 Texture Address Units and 8 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the GeForce GTX 960M is 344% faster than the Radeon R5 M330 in general, due to its higher bandwidth. (explain)

GeForce GTX 960M 64000 MB/sec
Radeon R5 M330 14400 MB/sec
Difference: 49600 (344%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 960M should be a lot (approximately 113%) better at texture filtering than the Radeon R5 M330. (explain)

GeForce GTX 960M 43840 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R5 M330 20600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 23240 (113%)

Pixel Rate

If running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 960M is a better choice, by a large margin. (explain)

GeForce GTX 960M 17536 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R5 M330 8240 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 9296 (113%)

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: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the video 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 the video card could possibly record 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 - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
