GeForce 8600 GTS vs Radeon R9 M365X

Intro

The GeForce 8600 GTS comes with core speeds of 675 MHz on the GPU, and 1000 MHz on the 512 MB of GDDR3 memory. It features 32 SPUs as well as 16 Texture Address Units and 8 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 memory works at a frequency of 1125 MHz on this card. It features 640 SPUs as well as 40 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon R9 M365X is 125% quicker than the GeForce 8600 GTS overall, due to its greater bandwidth. (explain)

Radeon R9 M365X 72000 MB/sec
GeForce 8600 GTS 32000 MB/sec
Difference: 40000 (125%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 M365X will be quite a bit (more or less 243%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the GeForce 8600 GTS. (explain)

Radeon R9 M365X 37000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 8600 GTS 10800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 26200 (243%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R9 M365X is quite a bit (approximately 174%) better at AA than the GeForce 8600 GTS, and also will be capable of handling higher screen resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

Radeon R9 M365X 14800 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 8600 GTS 5400 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 9400 (174%)

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 data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface within a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the video card can possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
