GeForce 8600 GT 1GB DDR2 vs Radeon R7 M360

Intro

The GeForce 8600 GT 1GB DDR2 features a GPU core speed of 540 MHz, and the 1024 MB of DDR2 memory is set to run at 400 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also features 32 Stream Processors, 16 TAUs, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all of that to the Radeon R7 M360, which features a GPU core clock speed of 1125 MHz, and 2048 MB of DDR3 RAM running at 1000 MHz through a 64-bit bus. It also is comprised of 384 SPUs, 24 Texture Address Units, and 8 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon R7 M360 is 25% quicker than the GeForce 8600 GT 1GB DDR2 overall, due to its higher bandwidth. (explain)

Radeon R7 M360 16000 MB/sec
GeForce 8600 GT 1GB DDR2 12800 MB/sec
Difference: 3200 (25%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R7 M360 should be much (approximately 213%) more effective at texture filtering than the GeForce 8600 GT 1GB DDR2. (explain)

Radeon R7 M360 27000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 8600 GT 1GB DDR2 8640 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 18360 (213%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R7 M360 is a lot (more or less 108%) faster with regards to full screen anti-aliasing than the GeForce 8600 GT 1GB DDR2, and also will be able to handle higher resolutions better. (explain)

Radeon R7 M360 9000 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 8600 GT 1GB DDR2 4320 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 4680 (108%)

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 MB per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in one second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR memory, it 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 AA, HDR and high resolutions.

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

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