GeForce 9600 GSO 1.5GB vs Radeon R7 M360

Intro

The GeForce 9600 GSO 1.5GB features core speeds of 550 MHz on the GPU, and 800 MHz on the 1536 MB of GDDR3 RAM. It features 96 SPUs as well as 48 TAUs and 12 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon R7 M360, which has core clock speeds of 1125 MHz on the GPU, and 1000 MHz on the 2048 MB of DDR3 memory. It features 384 SPUs as well as 24 Texture Address Units and 8 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

The GeForce 9600 GSO 1.5GB, in theory, should perform much 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 just a bit (more or less 2%) more effective at anisotropic 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 quite a bit (approximately 36%) better at full screen anti-aliasing than the GeForce 9600 GSO 1.5GB, and also should be capable of handling higher resolutions while still performing well. (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 maximum amount of data (counted in MB per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics chip can possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
