GeForce GTX 850M vs Radeon R9 M375

Intro

The GeForce GTX 850M has a core clock frequency of 876 MHz and a DDR3 memory speed of 1000 MHz. It also features a 128-bit memory bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It features 640 SPUs, 40 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon R9 M375, which has GPU clock speed of 1015 MHz, and 4096 MB of DDR3 memory set to run at 1100 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also features 640 SPUs, 40 Texture Address Units, and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

The Radeon R9 M375 should in theory perform a little bit faster than the GeForce GTX 850M overall. (explain)

Radeon R9 M375 35200 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 850M 32000 MB/sec
Difference: 3200 (10%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 M375 will be just a bit (about 16%) faster with regards to AF than the GeForce GTX 850M. (explain)

Radeon R9 M375 40600 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 850M 35040 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 5560 (16%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high screen resolution is important to you, then the Radeon R9 M375 is superior to the GeForce GTX 850M, but not by far. (explain)

Radeon R9 M375 16240 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 850M 14016 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 2224 (16%)

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 moved over the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses 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, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied 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 the texel rate, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out 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 drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
