GeForce 9800 GTX+ vs Radeon R9 M370X

Intro

The GeForce 9800 GTX+ uses a 55 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 738 MHz. The GDDR3 RAM runs at a speed of 1100 MHz on this particular card. It features 128 SPUs as well as 64 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Compare that to the Radeon R9 M370X, which comes with 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 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon R9 M370X should be a little 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+ will be a lot (approximately 48%) faster with regards to AF than the Radeon R9 M370X. (explain)

GeForce 9800 GTX+ 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 9800 GTX+ 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 max amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the card's 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 also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
