GeForce 9800 GTX vs Radeon R9 M370X

Intro

The GeForce 9800 GTX comes with a GPU clock speed of 675 MHz, and the 512 MB of GDDR3 RAM is set to run at 1100 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is comprised of 128 Stream Processors, 64 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon R9 M370X, which has core clock speeds of 800 MHz on the GPU, and 1125 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory. 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 bit faster than the GeForce 9800 GTX in general. (explain)

Radeon R9 M370X 72000 MB/sec
GeForce 9800 GTX 70400 MB/sec
Difference: 1600 (2%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 9800 GTX is much (about 35%) better at AF than the Radeon R9 M370X. (explain)

GeForce 9800 GTX 43200 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R9 M370X 32000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 11200 (35%)

Pixel Rate

If using high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon R9 M370X is a better choice, but not by far. (explain)

Radeon R9 M370X 12800 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 9800 GTX 10800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 2000 (19%)

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 (in units of MB per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units 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 processed in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card could possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
