GeForce 830M vs Radeon R7 M360

Intro

The GeForce 830M comes with a clock frequency of 1029 MHz and a DDR3 memory speed of 900 MHz. It also uses a 64-bit bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It is made up of 256 SPUs, 16 TAUs, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon R7 M360, which makes use of a 28 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 1125 MHz. The DDR3 memory works at a speed of 1000 MHz on this particular model. It features 384 SPUs as well as 24 Texture Address Units and 8 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

The Radeon R7 M360, in theory, should be just a bit faster than the GeForce 830M in general. (explain)

Radeon R7 M360 16000 MB/sec
GeForce 830M 14400 MB/sec
Difference: 1600 (11%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R7 M360 will be quite a bit (more or less 64%) better at AF than the GeForce 830M. (explain)

Radeon R7 M360 27000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 830M 16464 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 10536 (64%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R7 M360 is a small bit (about 9%) more effective at AA than the GeForce 830M, and will be capable of handling higher resolutions without slowing down too much. (explain)

Radeon R7 M360 9000 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 830M 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 largest amount of data (counted in MB 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 clock speed. In the case of DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total amount 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 maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card can possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate is also dependant on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
