GeForce 9800 GTX vs Radeon R9 M370X

Intro

The GeForce 9800 GTX features 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 features 128 Stream Processors, 64 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Compare those specs 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 RAM. It features 640 SPUs as well as 40 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

As far as performance goes, the Radeon R9 M370X should in theory be a little bit superior to 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 a lot (more or less 35%) better at anisotropic filtering than the Radeon R9 M370X. (explain)

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

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon R9 M370X is the winner, not by a very large margin though. (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 (in units of MB per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better 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 applied per second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the graphics card could possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the card's clock speed. 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 is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
