GeForce GTX 260 216SP 55 nm vs Radeon R9 M375X

Intro

The GeForce GTX 260 216SP 55 nm uses a 55 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 576 MHz. The GDDR3 RAM runs at a frequency of 999 MHz on this particular model. It features 216 SPUs as well as 72 Texture Address Units and 28 ROPs.

Compare that to the Radeon R9 M375X, which comes with GPU core speed of 1015 MHz, and 4096 MB of GDDR5 memory set to run at 1125 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is comprised of 640 SPUs, 40 Texture Address Units, and 16 ROPs.

The GeForce GTX 260 216SP 55 nm is a small bit (approximately 2%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the Radeon R9 M375X. (explain)

GeForce GTX 260 216SP 55 nm 41472 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R9 M375X 40600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 872 (2%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R9 M375X will be a bit (approximately 1%) faster with regards to AA than the GeForce GTX 260 216SP 55 nm, and also able to handle higher screen resolutions better. (explain)

Radeon R9 M375X 16240 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 260 216SP 55 nm 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 maximum amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
