GeForce GTX 970 vs Radeon R9 M375X

Intro

The GeForce GTX 970 features a GPU core clock speed of 1050 MHz, and the 4096 MB of GDDR5 memory runs at 1750 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also features 1664 SPUs, 104 TAUs, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon R9 M375X, which features clock speeds of 1015 MHz on the GPU, and 1125 MHz on the 4096 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 640 SPUs as well as 40 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the GeForce GTX 970 should be 211% quicker than the Radeon R9 M375X in general, due to its higher bandwidth. (explain)

GeForce GTX 970 224000 MB/sec
Radeon R9 M375X 72000 MB/sec
Difference: 152000 (211%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 970 is much (about 169%) better at anisotropic filtering than the Radeon R9 M375X. (explain)

GeForce GTX 970 109200 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R9 M375X 40600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 68600 (169%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high resolution is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 970 is superior to the Radeon R9 M375X, and very much so. (explain)

GeForce GTX 970 67200 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R9 M375X 16240 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 50960 (314%)

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 information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics card can possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
