Radeon R9 M370X 72000 MB/sec
Difference: 86976 (121%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 285 1GB should be quite a bit (more or less 62%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the Radeon R9 M370X. (explain)

GeForce GTX 285 1GB 51840 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R9 M370X 32000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 19840 (62%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 285 1GB is much (about 62%) better at full screen anti-aliasing than the Radeon R9 M370X, and able to handle higher resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

GeForce GTX 285 1GB 20736 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R9 M370X 12800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 7936 (62%)

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 max amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR type RAM, it should 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 anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core clock 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 applied in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics card can possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the number of Render Output Units 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 rate is also dependant on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
