GeForce GTS 250 512MB vs Radeon R9 M365X

Intro

The GeForce GTS 250 512MB has a core clock speed of 738 MHz and a GDDR3 memory speed of 1100 MHz. It also features a 256-bit bus, and makes use of a 65/55 nm design. It is made up of 128 SPUs, 64 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon R9 M365X, which features core speeds of 925 MHz on the GPU, and 1125 MHz on the 4096 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 640 SPUs along with 40 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Performance-wise, the Radeon R9 M365X should theoretically be just a bit superior to the GeForce GTS 250 512MB overall. (explain)

Radeon R9 M365X 72000 MB/sec
GeForce GTS 250 512MB 70400 MB/sec
Difference: 1600 (2%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTS 250 512MB should be quite a bit (more or less 28%) better at AF than the Radeon R9 M365X. (explain)

GeForce GTS 250 512MB 47232 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R9 M365X 37000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 10232 (28%)

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon R9 M365X is a better choice, and very much so. (explain)

Radeon R9 M365X 14800 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTS 250 512MB 11808 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 2992 (25%)

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 (measured in MB per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface within a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core speed of the card. 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 of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
