GeForce GTS 250 1GB vs Radeon R9 M365X

Intro

The GeForce GTS 250 1GB has a clock speed of 738 MHz and a GDDR3 memory frequency of 1100 MHz. It also makes use of a 256-bit memory bus, and uses a 65/55 nm design. It is comprised of 128 SPUs, 64 Texture Address Units, and 16 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon R9 M365X, which makes use of a 28 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 925 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM works at a frequency of 1125 MHz on this card. It features 640 SPUs along with 40 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

As far as performance goes, the Radeon R9 M365X should in theory be a small bit superior to the GeForce GTS 250 1GB overall. (explain)

Radeon R9 M365X 72000 MB/sec
GeForce GTS 250 1GB 70400 MB/sec
Difference: 1600 (2%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTS 250 1GB is a lot (approximately 28%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the Radeon R9 M365X. (explain)

GeForce GTS 250 1GB 47232 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R9 M365X 37000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 10232 (28%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R9 M365X will be quite a bit (about 25%) faster with regards to anti-aliasing than the GeForce GTS 250 1GB, and should be able to handle higher screen resolutions while still performing well. (explain)

Radeon R9 M365X 14800 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTS 250 1GB 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 max amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster 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 in one second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output 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 reach the max fill rate.
