GeForce GT 310 vs Radeon R7 M360

Intro

The GeForce GT 310 comes with clock speeds of 589 MHz on the GPU, and 1000 MHz on the 512 MB of DDR2 RAM. It features 16 SPUs as well as 8 Texture Address Units and 4 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare that to the Radeon R7 M360, which uses a 28 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 1125 MHz. The DDR3 RAM works at a frequency of 1000 MHz on this card. It features 384 SPUs along with 24 TAUs and 8 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

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

Texel Rate

The Radeon R7 M360 should be a lot (approximately 473%) more effective at AF than the GeForce GT 310. (explain)

Radeon R7 M360 27000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GT 310 4712 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 22288 (473%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon R7 M360 is superior to the GeForce GT 310, and very much so. (explain)

Radeon R7 M360 9000 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GT 310 2356 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 6644 (282%)

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 data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, the faster 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total 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 processed in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
