GeForce 840M vs Radeon R7 M360

Intro

The GeForce 840M uses a 28 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 1029 MHz. The DDR3 RAM is set to run at a frequency of 1000 MHz on this particular model. It features 384 SPUs along with 24 Texture Address Units and 8 Rasterization Operator Units.

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

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Both cards have the exact same bandwidth, so in theory they should perform exactly the same. (explain)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R7 M360 will be a bit (about 9%) better at AF than the GeForce 840M. (explain)

Radeon R7 M360 27000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 840M 24696 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 2304 (9%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R7 M360 should be a little bit (more or less 9%) faster with regards to AA than the GeForce 840M, and will be able to handle higher resolutions while still performing well. (explain)

Radeon R7 M360 9000 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 840M 8232 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 768 (9%)

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 maximum amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core 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 could possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount 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 output rate is also dependant on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
