GeForce 8500 GT vs Radeon R5 M330

Intro

The GeForce 8500 GT makes use of a 80 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 450 MHz. The DDR2 RAM works at a speed of 400 MHz on this specific card. It features 16 SPUs along with 8 TAUs and 4 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon R5 M330, which features clock speeds of 1030 MHz on the GPU, and 900 MHz on the 2048 MB of DDR3 RAM. It features 320 SPUs along with 20 Texture Address Units and 8 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

The Radeon R5 M330 should theoretically be a small bit faster than the GeForce 8500 GT overall. (explain)

Radeon R5 M330 14400 MB/sec
GeForce 8500 GT 12800 MB/sec
Difference: 1600 (13%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R5 M330 will be quite a bit (approximately 472%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the GeForce 8500 GT. (explain)

Radeon R5 M330 20600 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 8500 GT 3600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 17000 (472%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R5 M330 will be a lot (more or less 358%) more effective at AA than the GeForce 8500 GT, and also should be able to handle higher screen resolutions better. (explain)

Radeon R5 M330 8240 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 8500 GT 1800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 6440 (358%)

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 largest amount of data (counted in MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the graphics card can possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
