GeForce 9600 GSO 512MB vs Radeon R9 M365X

Intro

The GeForce 9600 GSO 512MB features clock speeds of 650 MHz on the GPU, and 900 MHz on the 512 MB of GDDR3 RAM. It features 96 SPUs as well as 48 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon R9 M365X, which features a GPU core clock speed of 925 MHz, and 4096 MB of GDDR5 memory set to run at 1125 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is made up of 640 Stream Processors, 40 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

As far as performance goes, the Radeon R9 M365X should in theory be quite a bit superior to the GeForce 9600 GSO 512MB in general. (explain)

Radeon R9 M365X 72000 MB/sec
GeForce 9600 GSO 512MB 57600 MB/sec
Difference: 14400 (25%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 M365X is a small bit (more or less 19%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the GeForce 9600 GSO 512MB. (explain)

Radeon R9 M365X 37000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 9600 GSO 512MB 31200 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 5800 (19%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R9 M365X should be a lot (approximately 42%) faster with regards to FSAA than the GeForce 9600 GSO 512MB, and will be capable of handling higher screen resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

Radeon R9 M365X 14800 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 9600 GSO 512MB 10400 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 4400 (42%)

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 maximum amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in one second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the graphics card can possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
