GeForce 820M vs Radeon R7 M360

Intro

The GeForce 820M features clock speeds of 719 MHz on the GPU, and 1000 MHz on the 2048 MB of DDR3 RAM. It features 96 SPUs as well as 16 Texture Address Units and 4 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon R7 M360, which uses a 28 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 1125 MHz. The DDR3 RAM is set to run at a frequency of 1000 MHz on this card. It features 384 SPUs along with 24 Texture Address Units and 8 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

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

Texel Rate

The Radeon R7 M360 will be a lot (about 135%) more effective at 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 superior to the GeForce 820M, 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: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the card will be at 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 a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
