GeForce GTX 480 vs Radeon R9 M365X

Intro

The GeForce GTX 480 uses a 40 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 700 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a frequency of 924 MHz on this specific card. It features 480 SPUs as well as 60 Texture Address Units and 48 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon R9 M365X, which uses a 28 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 925 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM is set to run at a frequency of 1125 MHz on this particular model. It features 640 SPUs along with 40 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Performance-wise, the GeForce GTX 480 should in theory be a lot superior to the Radeon R9 M365X in general. (explain)

GeForce GTX 480 177408 MB/sec
Radeon R9 M365X 72000 MB/sec
Difference: 105408 (146%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 480 is a small bit (more or less 14%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the Radeon R9 M365X. (explain)

GeForce GTX 480 42000 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R9 M365X 37000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 5000 (14%)

Pixel Rate

If running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 480 is a better choice, by far. (explain)

GeForce GTX 480 33600 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R9 M365X 14800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 18800 (127%)

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 MB per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the card will be at 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 could possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called 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 of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
