GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 vs Radeon R9 M375X

Intro

The GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 comes with a GPU clock speed of 576 MHz, and the 896 MB of GDDR3 RAM is set to run at 999 MHz through a 448-bit bus. It also features 216 Stream Processors, 72 Texture Address Units, and 28 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon R9 M375X, which makes use of a 28 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 1015 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM is set to run at a frequency of 1125 MHz on this specific model. It features 640 SPUs as well as 40 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 will be 55% quicker than the Radeon R9 M375X overall, due to its higher bandwidth. (explain)

GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 111888 MB/sec
Radeon R9 M375X 72000 MB/sec
Difference: 39888 (55%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 should be a bit (about 2%) more effective at texture filtering than the Radeon R9 M375X. (explain)

GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 41472 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R9 M375X 40600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 872 (2%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high resolution is important to you, then the Radeon R9 M375X is a better choice, but only just. (explain)

Radeon R9 M375X 16240 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 16128 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 112 (1%)

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 (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in one second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the video card could possibly write to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the clock 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 also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
