Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

The Radeon R9 M370X should in theory be just a bit faster than the GeForce GTS 250 512MB overall. (explain)

Radeon R9 M370X 72000 MB/sec
GeForce GTS 250 512MB 70400 MB/sec
Difference: 1600 (2%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTS 250 512MB is much (approximately 48%) more effective at AF than the Radeon R9 M370X. (explain)

GeForce GTS 250 512MB 47232 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R9 M370X 32000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 15232 (48%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high resolution is important to you, then the Radeon R9 M370X is superior to the GeForce GTS 250 512MB, though not by far. (explain)

Radeon R9 M370X 12800 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTS 250 512MB 11808 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 992 (8%)

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 information (measured in MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the video card can possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
