GeForce GTS 250 1GB vs Radeon R9 M370X

Intro

The GeForce GTS 250 1GB has core clock speeds of 738 MHz on the GPU, and 1100 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR3 memory. It features 128 SPUs as well as 64 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon R9 M370X, which makes use of a 28 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 800 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a speed of 1125 MHz on this model. It features 640 SPUs along with 40 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Performance-wise, the Radeon R9 M370X should in theory be a bit superior to the GeForce GTS 250 1GB in general. (explain)

Radeon R9 M370X 72000 MB/sec
GeForce GTS 250 1GB 70400 MB/sec
Difference: 1600 (2%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTS 250 1GB is a lot (about 48%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the Radeon R9 M370X. (explain)

GeForce GTS 250 1GB 47232 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R9 M370X 32000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 15232 (48%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon R9 M370X is a better choice, but only just. (explain)

Radeon R9 M370X 12800 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTS 250 1GB 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: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface within a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses 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 higher screen 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 number of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card could possibly write to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
