GeForce 8300 GS (OEM) vs Radeon R9 M375

Intro

The GeForce 8300 GS (OEM) has a clock speed of 450 MHz and a DDR2 memory frequency of 400 MHz. It also makes use of a 64-bit memory bus, and uses a 80 nm design. It is made up of 8 SPUs, 4 Texture Address Units, and 2 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon R9 M375, which features a clock frequency of 1015 MHz and a DDR3 memory speed of 1100 MHz. It also uses a 128-bit bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It features 640 SPUs, 40 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon R9 M375 will be 450% faster than the GeForce 8300 GS (OEM) overall, due to its higher bandwidth. (explain)

Radeon R9 M375 35200 MB/sec
GeForce 8300 GS (OEM) 6400 MB/sec
Difference: 28800 (450%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 M375 should be quite a bit (about 2156%) more effective at AF than the GeForce 8300 GS (OEM). (explain)

Radeon R9 M375 40600 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 8300 GS (OEM) 1800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 38800 (2156%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high resolution is important to you, then the Radeon R9 M375 is a better choice, and very much so. (explain)

Radeon R9 M375 16240 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 8300 GS (OEM) 900 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 15340 (1704%)

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 (counted in MB per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics chip can possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
