GeForce 9600 GSO ASUS 512 vs Radeon R7 M360

Intro

The GeForce 9600 GSO ASUS 512 features a core clock frequency of 550 MHz and a DDR2 memory speed of 500 MHz. It also features a 128-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 65 nm design. It is made up of 96 SPUs, 48 TAUs, and 12 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all of that to the Radeon R7 M360, which comes with GPU 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 made up of 384 Stream Processors, 24 Texture Address Units, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

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

Texel Rate

The Radeon R7 M360 is a little bit (more or less 2%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the GeForce 9600 GSO ASUS 512. (explain)

Radeon R7 M360 27000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 9600 GSO ASUS 512 26400 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 600 (2%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high resolution is important to you, then the Radeon R7 M360 is the winner, by far. (explain)

Radeon R7 M360 9000 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 9600 GSO ASUS 512 6600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 2400 (36%)

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 information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units 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 applied in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
