GeForce 9800 GTX vs Radeon R9 M365X

Intro

The GeForce 9800 GTX makes use of a 65 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 675 MHz. The GDDR3 memory works at a frequency of 1100 MHz on this particular model. It features 128 SPUs along with 64 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon R9 M365X, which comes with a clock frequency of 925 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1125 MHz. It also features a 128-bit memory bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It features 640 SPUs, 40 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Performance-wise, the Radeon R9 M365X should in theory be a small bit better than the GeForce 9800 GTX overall. (explain)

Radeon R9 M365X 72000 MB/sec
GeForce 9800 GTX 70400 MB/sec
Difference: 1600 (2%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 9800 GTX should be a little bit (about 17%) more effective at texture filtering than the Radeon R9 M365X. (explain)

GeForce 9800 GTX 43200 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R9 M365X 37000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 6200 (17%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high screen resolution is important to you, then the Radeon R9 M365X is the winner, by far. (explain)

Radeon R9 M365X 14800 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 9800 GTX 10800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 4000 (37%)

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 data (in units of MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in one second. The number is calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once 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 anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This is worked out by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core 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 processed in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics chip can possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
