GeForce 9500 GT 512MB GDDR3 vs Radeon R7 M360

Intro

The GeForce 9500 GT 512MB GDDR3 features a clock frequency of 550 MHz and a GDDR3 memory speed of 800 MHz. It also uses a 128-bit bus, and uses a 55 nm design. It features 32 SPUs, 16 Texture Address Units, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

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

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

As far as performance goes, the GeForce 9500 GT 512MB GDDR3 should theoretically be quite a bit superior to the Radeon R7 M360 overall. (explain)

GeForce 9500 GT 512MB GDDR3 25600 MB/sec
Radeon R7 M360 16000 MB/sec
Difference: 9600 (60%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R7 M360 is quite a bit (more or less 207%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the GeForce 9500 GT 512MB GDDR3. (explain)

Radeon R7 M360 27000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 9500 GT 512MB GDDR3 8800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 18200 (207%)

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon R7 M360 is a better choice, by far. (explain)

Radeon R7 M360 9000 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 9500 GT 512MB GDDR3 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 max amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in one second. It is worked out by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the video card can possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
