GeForce 9500 GT DDR2 vs Radeon R7 M360

Intro

The GeForce 9500 GT DDR2 features a GPU core clock speed of 550 MHz, and the 256 MB of DDR2 memory runs at 500 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is made up of 32 SPUs, 16 TAUs, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all of that to the Radeon R7 M360, which uses a 28 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 1125 MHz. The DDR3 memory is set to run at a speed of 1000 MHz on this card. It features 384 SPUs along with 24 Texture Address Units and 8 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

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

Texel Rate

The Radeon R7 M360 is quite a bit (approximately 207%) better at texture filtering than the GeForce 9500 GT DDR2. (explain)

Radeon R7 M360 27000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 9500 GT DDR2 8800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 18200 (207%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R7 M360 should be much (about 105%) more effective at full screen anti-aliasing than the GeForce 9500 GT DDR2, and also should be able to handle higher resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

Radeon R7 M360 9000 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 9500 GT DDR2 4400 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 4600 (105%)

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 transported across the external memory interface within a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This number is calculated 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 video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
