GeForce 9800 GX2 vs Radeon R9 M375X

Intro

The GeForce 9800 GX2 features core speeds of 600 MHz on the GPU, and 1000 MHz on the 512 MB of GDDR3 memory. It features 128 SPUs as well as 64 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Compare that to the Radeon R9 M375X, which features core speeds of 1015 MHz on the GPU, and 1125 MHz on the 4096 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 640 SPUs along with 40 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

The GeForce 9800 GX2 should theoretically be much faster than the Radeon R9 M375X in general. (explain)

GeForce 9800 GX2 128000 MB/sec
Radeon R9 M375X 72000 MB/sec
Difference: 56000 (78%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 9800 GX2 is much (more or less 89%) more effective at texture filtering than the Radeon R9 M375X. (explain)

GeForce 9800 GX2 76800 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R9 M375X 40600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 36200 (89%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high screen resolution is important to you, then the GeForce 9800 GX2 is a better choice, not by a very large margin though. (explain)

GeForce 9800 GX2 19200 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R9 M375X 16240 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 2960 (18%)

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.

One or more cards in this comparison are multi-core. This means that their bandwidth, texel and pixel rates are theoretically doubled - this does not mean the card will actually perform twice as fast, but only that it should in theory be able to. Actual game benchmarks will give a more accurate idea of what it's capable of.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in a second. It is worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The better 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 most pixels the graphics card can possibly record 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 filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate also depends on many 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.
