GeForce 9600 GSO 1.5GB vs Radeon R7 M360

Intro

The GeForce 9600 GSO 1.5GB uses a 65 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 550 MHz. The GDDR3 memory works at a speed of 800 MHz on this model. It features 96 SPUs as well as 48 TAUs and 12 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon R7 M360, which has a clock speed of 1125 MHz and a DDR3 memory speed of 1000 MHz. It also makes use of a 64-bit memory bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It features 384 SPUs, 24 Texture Address Units, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the GeForce 9600 GSO 1.5GB is 140% quicker than the Radeon R7 M360 overall, because of its higher data rate. (explain)

GeForce 9600 GSO 1.5GB 38400 MB/sec
Radeon R7 M360 16000 MB/sec
Difference: 22400 (140%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R7 M360 should be a bit (about 2%) better at texture filtering than the GeForce 9600 GSO 1.5GB. (explain)

Radeon R7 M360 27000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 9600 GSO 1.5GB 26400 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 600 (2%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R7 M360 will be much (more or less 36%) faster with regards to AA than the GeForce 9600 GSO 1.5GB, and able to handle higher screen resolutions more effectively. (explain)

Radeon R7 M360 9000 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 9600 GSO 1.5GB 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 (counted in MB per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better 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 in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most 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 worked out by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the core 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 rate is also dependant on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
