GeForce GT 240 GDDR5 vs Radeon R9 M370X

Intro

The GeForce GT 240 GDDR5 features a core clock frequency of 550 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 850 MHz. It also features a 128-bit memory bus, and uses a 40 nm design. It features 96 SPUs, 32 Texture Address Units, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon R9 M370X, which comes with a GPU core clock speed of 800 MHz, and 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory set to run at 1125 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is made up of 640 SPUs, 40 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Performance-wise, the Radeon R9 M370X should in theory be a lot superior to the GeForce GT 240 GDDR5 overall. (explain)

Radeon R9 M370X 72000 MB/sec
GeForce GT 240 GDDR5 54400 MB/sec
Difference: 17600 (32%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 M370X will be much (about 82%) better at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GT 240 GDDR5. (explain)

Radeon R9 M370X 32000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GT 240 GDDR5 17600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 14400 (82%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R9 M370X is quite a bit (about 191%) faster with regards to full screen anti-aliasing than the GeForce GT 240 GDDR5, and also capable of handling higher screen resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

Radeon R9 M370X 12800 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GT 240 GDDR5 4400 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 8400 (191%)

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 information (counted in MB per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in a second. It is worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure 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 outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
