GeForce GT 230 vs Radeon R9 M375X

Intro

The GeForce GT 230 has clock speeds of 550 MHz on the GPU, and 800 MHz on the 1536 MB of DDR3 memory. It features 32 SPUs as well as 16 TAUs and 8 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon R9 M375X, which uses a 28 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 1015 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a speed of 1125 MHz on this particular card. It features 640 SPUs as well as 40 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon R9 M375X will be 88% quicker than the GeForce GT 230 in general, because of its higher bandwidth. (explain)

Radeon R9 M375X 72000 MB/sec
GeForce GT 230 38400 MB/sec
Difference: 33600 (88%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 M375X will be much (more or less 361%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GT 230. (explain)

Radeon R9 M375X 40600 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GT 230 8800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 31800 (361%)

Pixel Rate

If running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon R9 M375X is the winner, and very much so. (explain)

Radeon R9 M375X 16240 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GT 230 4400 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 11840 (269%)

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 max amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface within a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

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

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