GeForce 9800 GT 512MB vs Radeon R9 M370X

Intro

The GeForce 9800 GT 512MB has core speeds of 600 MHz on the GPU, and 900 MHz on the 512 MB of GDDR3 memory. It features 112 SPUs along with 56 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon R9 M370X, which makes use of a 28 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 800 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM runs at a frequency of 1125 MHz on this particular card. 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 perform quite a bit faster than the GeForce 9800 GT 512MB in general. (explain)

Radeon R9 M370X 72000 MB/sec
GeForce 9800 GT 512MB 57600 MB/sec
Difference: 14400 (25%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 9800 GT 512MB should be a small bit (approximately 5%) better at AF than the Radeon R9 M370X. (explain)

GeForce 9800 GT 512MB 33600 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R9 M370X 32000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 1600 (5%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R9 M370X will be much (approximately 33%) faster with regards to full screen anti-aliasing than the GeForce 9800 GT 512MB, and also will be able to handle higher screen resolutions without slowing down too much. (explain)

Radeon R9 M370X 12800 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 9800 GT 512MB 9600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 3200 (33%)

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 max amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in a second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the video card could possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number 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 outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
