GeForce 9600 GSO 1.5GB vs Radeon R9 M370X

Intro

The GeForce 9600 GSO 1.5GB comes with a GPU clock speed of 550 MHz, and the 1536 MB of GDDR3 memory runs at 800 MHz through a 192-bit bus. It also is comprised of 96 SPUs, 48 Texture Address Units, and 12 ROPs.

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 RAM runs at a frequency of 1125 MHz on this card. It features 640 SPUs as well as 40 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically, the Radeon R9 M370X should perform a lot faster than the GeForce 9600 GSO 1.5GB in general. (explain)

Radeon R9 M370X 72000 MB/sec
GeForce 9600 GSO 1.5GB 38400 MB/sec
Difference: 33600 (88%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 M370X will be quite a bit (about 21%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the GeForce 9600 GSO 1.5GB. (explain)

Radeon R9 M370X 32000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 9600 GSO 1.5GB 26400 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 5600 (21%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon R9 M370X is superior to the GeForce 9600 GSO 1.5GB, by far. (explain)

Radeon R9 M370X 12800 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 9600 GSO 1.5GB 6600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 6200 (94%)

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 information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high 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 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 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. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
