GeForce 8300 GS (OEM) vs Radeon R9 M375

Intro

The GeForce 8300 GS (OEM) has a GPU core clock speed of 450 MHz, and the 128 MB of DDR2 RAM is set to run at 400 MHz through a 64-bit bus. It also features 8 Stream Processors, 4 Texture Address Units, and 2 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon R9 M375, which comes with a clock frequency of 1015 MHz and a DDR3 memory speed of 1100 MHz. It also uses a 128-bit bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It is comprised of 640 SPUs, 40 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon R9 M375 should be 450% quicker than the GeForce 8300 GS (OEM) in general, due to its greater data rate. (explain)

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

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 M375 will be quite a bit (more or less 2156%) better at texture filtering 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

The Radeon R9 M375 is much (more or less 1704%) more effective at FSAA than the GeForce 8300 GS (OEM), and also should be able to handle higher screen resolutions while still performing well. (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 maximum amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card can 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 ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
