GeForce 9600 GT 512MB vs Radeon R9 M370X

Intro

The GeForce 9600 GT 512MB features a GPU clock speed of 650 MHz, and the 512 MB of GDDR3 RAM is set to run at 900 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is comprised of 64 Stream Processors, 32 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Compare those specifications 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 along with 40 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Performance-wise, the Radeon R9 M370X should in theory be quite a bit superior to the GeForce 9600 GT 512MB in general. (explain)

Radeon R9 M370X 72000 MB/sec
GeForce 9600 GT 512MB 57600 MB/sec
Difference: 14400 (25%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 M370X is much (more or less 54%) more effective at texture filtering than the GeForce 9600 GT 512MB. (explain)

Radeon R9 M370X 32000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 9600 GT 512MB 20800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 11200 (54%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R9 M370X will be much (approximately 23%) faster with regards to FSAA than the GeForce 9600 GT 512MB, and should be able to handle higher screen resolutions while still performing well. (explain)

Radeon R9 M370X 12800 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 9600 GT 512MB 10400 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 2400 (23%)

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 information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, the faster 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the video card could possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
