GeForce GTX 870M vs Radeon R7 M360

Intro

The GeForce GTX 870M features a core clock speed of 941 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1000 MHz. It also makes use of a 192-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It is made up of 1344 SPUs, 112 Texture Address Units, and 24 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon R7 M360, which has a core clock frequency of 1125 MHz and a DDR3 memory frequency of 1000 MHz. It also features a 64-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It features 384 SPUs, 24 Texture Address Units, and 8 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Performance-wise, the GeForce GTX 870M should theoretically be much superior to the Radeon R7 M360 overall. (explain)

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

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 870M is much (more or less 290%) better at texture filtering than the Radeon R7 M360. (explain)

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

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 870M is a better choice, and very much so. (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 max amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, 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 texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card 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 per second.

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