GeForce 9600 GSO ASUS 512 vs Radeon R5 M330

Intro

The GeForce 9600 GSO ASUS 512 features a GPU clock speed of 550 MHz, and the 512 MB of DDR2 RAM is set to run at 500 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is comprised of 96 SPUs, 48 Texture Address Units, and 12 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all of that to the Radeon R5 M330, which features GPU core speed of 1030 MHz, and 2048 MB of DDR3 memory set to run at 900 MHz through a 64-bit bus. It also is comprised of 320 Stream Processors, 20 Texture Address Units, and 8 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the GeForce 9600 GSO ASUS 512 should be 11% quicker than the Radeon R5 M330 overall, due to its higher data rate. (explain)

GeForce 9600 GSO ASUS 512 16000 MB/sec
Radeon R5 M330 14400 MB/sec
Difference: 1600 (11%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 9600 GSO ASUS 512 should be much (about 28%) more effective at AF than the Radeon R5 M330. (explain)

GeForce 9600 GSO ASUS 512 26400 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R5 M330 20600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 5800 (28%)

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon R5 M330 is the winner, by a large margin. (explain)

Radeon R5 M330 8240 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 9600 GSO ASUS 512 6600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 1640 (25%)

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 data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface within a second. It's worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better 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 can be processed per second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the video 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 maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card could possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
