Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Performance-wise, the GeForce GTX 870M should in theory be a lot superior to 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 will be a lot (more or less 290%) more effective at AF than the Radeon R7 M360. (explain)

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

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 870M is the winner, by a large margin. (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: Bandwidth is the largest amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in a second.

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