GeForce GTX 860M vs Radeon R9 M370X

Intro

The GeForce GTX 860M comes with a clock frequency of 797 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1000 MHz. It also uses a 128-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It is comprised of 1152 SPUs, 96 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Compare that to the Radeon R9 M370X, which comes with core clock speeds of 800 MHz on the GPU, and 1125 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 640 SPUs as well as 40 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

The Radeon R9 M370X, in theory, should be a small bit faster than the GeForce GTX 860M overall. (explain)

Radeon R9 M370X 72000 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 860M 64000 MB/sec
Difference: 8000 (13%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 860M will be quite a bit (approximately 139%) more effective at AF than the Radeon R9 M370X. (explain)

GeForce GTX 860M 76512 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R9 M370X 32000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 44512 (139%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high screen resolution is important to you, then the Radeon R9 M370X is the winner, not by a very large margin though. (explain)

Radeon R9 M370X 12800 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 860M 12752 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 48 (0%)

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 transported across the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate also depends on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
