GeForce 9800 GT 512MB vs Radeon R9 M365X

Intro

The GeForce 9800 GT 512MB makes use of a 65/55 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 600 MHz. The GDDR3 RAM is set to run at a speed of 900 MHz on this card. It features 112 SPUs as well as 56 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon R9 M365X, which comes with GPU core speed of 925 MHz, and 4096 MB of GDDR5 memory set to run at 1125 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also features 640 SPUs, 40 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

The Radeon R9 M365X is just a bit (more or less 10%) more effective at texture filtering than the GeForce 9800 GT 512MB. (explain)

Radeon R9 M365X 37000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 9800 GT 512MB 33600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 3400 (10%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R9 M365X is much (about 54%) better at anti-aliasing than the GeForce 9800 GT 512MB, and also able to handle higher screen resolutions without slowing down too much. (explain)

Radeon R9 M365X 14800 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 9800 GT 512MB 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: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in a second. It is calculated by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, the faster 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 in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
