GeForce 820M vs Radeon R7 M360

Intro

The GeForce 820M comes with core clock speeds of 719 MHz on the GPU, and 1000 MHz on the 2048 MB of DDR3 memory. It features 96 SPUs along with 16 TAUs and 4 Rasterization Operator Units.

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

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

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

Texel Rate

The Radeon R7 M360 is quite a bit (more or less 135%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the GeForce 820M. (explain)

Radeon R7 M360 27000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 820M 11504 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 15496 (135%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon R7 M360 is the winner, by far. (explain)

Radeon R7 M360 9000 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 820M 2876 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 6124 (213%)

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 max amount of information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses 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 processed per second. This is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card can possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
