GeForce 9800 GT 1GB vs Radeon R7 M360

Intro

The GeForce 9800 GT 1GB makes use of a 65/55 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 600 MHz. The GDDR3 memory is set to run at a speed of 900 MHz on this specific model. It features 112 SPUs as well as 56 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon R7 M360, which has a GPU core clock speed of 1125 MHz, and 2048 MB of DDR3 memory set to run at 1000 MHz through a 64-bit bus. It also is comprised of 384 Stream Processors, 24 TAUs, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the GeForce 9800 GT 1GB should be 260% quicker than the Radeon R7 M360 in general, because of its higher bandwidth. (explain)

GeForce 9800 GT 1GB 57600 MB/sec
Radeon R7 M360 16000 MB/sec
Difference: 41600 (260%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 9800 GT 1GB is a lot (about 24%) better at texture filtering than the Radeon R7 M360. (explain)

GeForce 9800 GT 1GB 33600 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R7 M360 27000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 6600 (24%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce 9800 GT 1GB is a bit (more or less 7%) better at FSAA than the Radeon R7 M360, and also should be able to handle higher resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

GeForce 9800 GT 1GB 9600 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R7 M360 9000 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 600 (7%)

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 over the external memory interface within a second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are 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 this number, the better the video card will be at handling 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 a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number 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 also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
