GeForce GTX 860M vs Radeon R9 M375X

Intro

The GeForce GTX 860M features core speeds of 797 MHz on the GPU, and 1000 MHz on the 4096 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 1152 SPUs as well as 96 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon R9 M375X, which comes with GPU core speed of 1015 MHz, and 4096 MB of GDDR5 RAM set to run at 1125 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

As far as performance goes, the Radeon R9 M375X should in theory be a little bit better than the GeForce GTX 860M in general. (explain)

Radeon R9 M375X 72000 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 860M 64000 MB/sec
Difference: 8000 (13%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 860M is much (about 88%) better at anisotropic filtering than the Radeon R9 M375X. (explain)

GeForce GTX 860M 76512 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R9 M375X 40600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 35912 (88%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R9 M375X is quite a bit (approximately 27%) better at AA than the GeForce GTX 860M, and also should be capable of handling higher screen resolutions more effectively. (explain)

Radeon R9 M375X 16240 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 860M 12752 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 3488 (27%)

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 maximum amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in one second. It is worked out by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, the better 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core 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 applied in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics chip can possibly write 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 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 output rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
