GeForce 9600 GSO 1.5GB vs Radeon R9 M375

Intro

The GeForce 9600 GSO 1.5GB uses a 65 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 550 MHz. The GDDR3 memory works at a speed of 800 MHz on this particular model. It features 96 SPUs as well as 48 TAUs and 12 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon R9 M375, which features GPU core speed of 1015 MHz, and 4096 MB of DDR3 RAM running at 1100 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is made up of 640 SPUs, 40 Texture Address Units, and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Performance-wise, the GeForce 9600 GSO 1.5GB should in theory be a little bit superior to the Radeon R9 M375 in general. (explain)

GeForce 9600 GSO 1.5GB 38400 MB/sec
Radeon R9 M375 35200 MB/sec
Difference: 3200 (9%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 M375 will be quite a bit (about 54%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the GeForce 9600 GSO 1.5GB. (explain)

Radeon R9 M375 40600 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 9600 GSO 1.5GB 26400 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 14200 (54%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R9 M375 should be a lot (more or less 146%) better at anti-aliasing than the GeForce 9600 GSO 1.5GB, and also capable of handling higher screen resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

Radeon R9 M375 16240 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 9600 GSO 1.5GB 6600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 9640 (146%)

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 (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface within a second. It's calculated by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the video 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 the video card can possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
