GeForce GT 230 vs Radeon R9 M375X

Intro

The GeForce GT 230 has a GPU core speed of 550 MHz, and the 1536 MB of DDR3 RAM runs at 800 MHz through a 192-bit bus. It also features 32 Stream Processors, 16 Texture Address Units, and 8 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon R9 M375X, which comes with a clock frequency of 1015 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1125 MHz. It also uses a 128-bit memory bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It features 640 SPUs, 40 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon R9 M375X should be 88% quicker than the GeForce GT 230 in general, due to 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 is quite a bit (approximately 361%) better at AF than the GeForce GT 230. (explain)

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

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon R9 M375X is a better choice, by a large margin. (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 information (counted in MB per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core 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 in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the video card could possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the number of colour 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 rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
