GeForce 9600 GSO 512MB vs Radeon R9 M370X

Intro

The GeForce 9600 GSO 512MB makes use of a 65/55 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 650 MHz. The GDDR3 RAM works at a frequency of 900 MHz on this particular model. It features 96 SPUs along with 48 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon R9 M370X, which has GPU core speed of 800 MHz, and 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM set to run at 1125 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is comprised of 640 Stream Processors, 40 Texture Address Units, and 16 ROPs.

GeForce 9600 GSO 512MB 57600 MB/sec
Difference: 14400 (25%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 M370X is a little bit (more or less 3%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce 9600 GSO 512MB. (explain)

Radeon R9 M370X 32000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 9600 GSO 512MB 31200 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 800 (3%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R9 M370X should be a lot (approximately 23%) better at full screen anti-aliasing than the GeForce 9600 GSO 512MB, and capable of handling higher resolutions better. (explain)

Radeon R9 M370X 12800 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 9600 GSO 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 largest amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface within a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This is worked out by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the video card could possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines 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 fill rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
