GeForce GTX 870M vs Radeon R7 M360

Intro

The GeForce GTX 870M uses a 28 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 941 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a speed of 1000 MHz on this particular model. It features 1344 SPUs as well as 112 TAUs and 24 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon R7 M360, which features core speeds of 1125 MHz on the GPU, and 1000 MHz on the 2048 MB of DDR3 RAM. It features 384 SPUs as well as 24 Texture Address Units and 8 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the GeForce GTX 870M should perform quite a bit faster than the Radeon R7 M360 in general. (explain)

GeForce GTX 870M 96000 MB/sec
Radeon R7 M360 16000 MB/sec
Difference: 80000 (500%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 870M should be much (about 290%) faster with regards to AF than the Radeon R7 M360. (explain)

GeForce GTX 870M 105392 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R7 M360 27000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 78392 (290%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 870M will be much (about 151%) better at AA than the Radeon R7 M360, and also should be capable of handling higher resolutions while still performing well. (explain)

GeForce GTX 870M 22584 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R7 M360 9000 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 13584 (151%)

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 maximum amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, 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 most pixels that the graphics chip can possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the core 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 output rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
