GeForce 9800 GT 1GB vs Radeon R9 M365X

Intro

The GeForce 9800 GT 1GB makes use of a 65/55 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 600 MHz. The GDDR3 RAM works at a frequency of 900 MHz on this specific card. It features 112 SPUs along with 56 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon R9 M365X, which has a core clock speed of 925 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1125 MHz. It also uses a 128-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It is comprised of 640 SPUs, 40 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically, the Radeon R9 M365X should be a lot faster than the GeForce 9800 GT 1GB in general. (explain)

Radeon R9 M365X 72000 MB/sec
GeForce 9800 GT 1GB 57600 MB/sec
Difference: 14400 (25%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 M365X will be a small bit (about 10%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the GeForce 9800 GT 1GB. (explain)

Radeon R9 M365X 37000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 9800 GT 1GB 33600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 3400 (10%)

Pixel Rate

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

Radeon R9 M365X 14800 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 9800 GT 1GB 9600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 5200 (54%)

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: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster 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 texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card could possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel 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 ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
