GeForce 9600 GT 1GB vs Radeon R9 M370X

Intro

The GeForce 9600 GT 1GB features a clock speed of 650 MHz and a GDDR3 memory speed of 900 MHz. It also makes use of a 256-bit bus, and makes use of a 65/55 nm design. It is made up of 64 SPUs, 32 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon R9 M370X, which makes use of a 28 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 800 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a speed of 1125 MHz on this card. It features 640 SPUs as well as 40 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon R9 M370X should be much faster than the GeForce 9600 GT 1GB overall. (explain)

Radeon R9 M370X 72000 MB/sec
GeForce 9600 GT 1GB 57600 MB/sec
Difference: 14400 (25%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 M370X is much (approximately 54%) better at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce 9600 GT 1GB. (explain)

Radeon R9 M370X 32000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 9600 GT 1GB 20800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 11200 (54%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon R9 M370X is the winner, by far. (explain)

Radeon R9 M370X 12800 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 9600 GT 1GB 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: Bandwidth is the max amount of information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in a second. It is worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR memory, 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 AA, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, 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 maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of ROPs 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 output rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
