GeForce GTS 250 1GB vs Radeon R9 M375X

Intro

The GeForce GTS 250 1GB comes with a GPU core speed of 738 MHz, and the 1024 MB of GDDR3 RAM is set to run at 1100 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also features 128 Stream Processors, 64 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon R9 M375X, which has a clock speed of 1015 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1125 MHz. It also makes use of a 128-bit bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It is made up of 640 SPUs, 40 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

The GeForce GTS 250 1GB will be a little bit (about 16%) better at AF than the Radeon R9 M375X. (explain)

GeForce GTS 250 1GB 47232 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R9 M375X 40600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 6632 (16%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R9 M375X should be quite a bit (more or less 38%) better at full screen anti-aliasing than the GeForce GTS 250 1GB, and will be able to handle higher resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

Radeon R9 M375X 16240 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTS 250 1GB 11808 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 4432 (38%)

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 data (measured in MB per second) that can be transported 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. If the card has DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

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

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