GeForce 9600 GSO 1.5GB vs Radeon R7 M360

Intro

The GeForce 9600 GSO 1.5GB makes use of a 65 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 550 MHz. The GDDR3 RAM runs at a speed of 800 MHz on this particular model. It features 96 SPUs along with 48 TAUs and 12 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon R7 M360, which has 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 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the GeForce 9600 GSO 1.5GB should be a lot faster than the Radeon R7 M360 in general. (explain)

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

Texel Rate

The Radeon R7 M360 is a small bit (more or less 2%) faster with regards to 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 should be quite a bit (approximately 36%) better at FSAA than the GeForce 9600 GSO 1.5GB, and also will be capable of handling higher screen resolutions without slowing down too much. (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: Bandwidth is the largest amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This is worked out by multiplying the total texture units of the card 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 most pixels the graphics card can possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also 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, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
