GeForce 9800 GTX vs Radeon R9 M370X

Intro

The GeForce 9800 GTX uses a 65 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 675 MHz. The GDDR3 memory works at a speed of 1100 MHz on this particular card. It features 128 SPUs as well as 64 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon R9 M370X, which makes use of a 28 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 800 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a speed of 1125 MHz on this specific card. It features 640 SPUs as well as 40 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

As far as performance goes, the Radeon R9 M370X should in theory be a bit better 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 should be much (approximately 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

The Radeon R9 M370X will be just a bit (approximately 19%) more effective at anti-aliasing than the GeForce 9800 GTX, and should be capable of handling higher screen resolutions better. (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: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (counted in MB per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the video 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 maximum number of pixels that the graphics card can possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
