GeForce 9600 GSO ASUS 512 vs Radeon R7 M360

Intro

The GeForce 9600 GSO ASUS 512 features a clock frequency of 550 MHz and a DDR2 memory speed of 500 MHz. It also makes use of a 128-bit bus, and makes use of a 65 nm design. It is comprised of 96 SPUs, 48 Texture Address Units, and 12 ROPs.

Compare that to the Radeon R7 M360, which uses a 28 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 1125 MHz. The DDR3 RAM is set to run at a frequency of 1000 MHz on this model. It features 384 SPUs as well as 24 Texture Address Units and 8 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

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

Texel Rate

The Radeon R7 M360 is a little bit (more or less 2%) faster with regards to AF 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

The Radeon R7 M360 will be a lot (approximately 36%) faster with regards to anti-aliasing than the GeForce 9600 GSO ASUS 512, and able to handle higher resolutions better. (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: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card can possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. 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 get to the maximum fill rate.
