GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 vs Radeon R9 M375X

Intro

The GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 features a GPU clock speed of 576 MHz, and the 896 MB of GDDR3 memory runs at 999 MHz through a 448-bit bus. It also is made up of 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 clocked the core speed at 1015 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a speed of 1125 MHz on this model. It features 640 SPUs as well as 40 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Radeon R9 M375X 40600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 872 (2%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R9 M375X should be a bit (more or less 1%) better at anti-aliasing than the GeForce GTX 260 Core 216, and also should be capable of handling higher resolutions better. (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: Bandwidth is the max amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR memory, it must 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, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied per 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 number is worked out by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines 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 rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
