GeForce 9800 GT 512MB vs Radeon R9 M375X

Intro

The GeForce 9800 GT 512MB comes with core clock speeds of 600 MHz on the GPU, and 900 MHz on the 512 MB of GDDR3 RAM. It features 112 SPUs along with 56 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

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

Performance-wise, the Radeon R9 M375X should in theory be a lot superior to the GeForce 9800 GT 512MB in general. (explain)

Radeon R9 M375X 72000 MB/sec
GeForce 9800 GT 512MB 57600 MB/sec
Difference: 14400 (25%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 M375X will be a lot (more or less 21%) faster with regards to AF than the GeForce 9800 GT 512MB. (explain)

Radeon R9 M375X 40600 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 9800 GT 512MB 33600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 7000 (21%)

Pixel Rate

If running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon R9 M375X is a better choice, by far. (explain)

Radeon R9 M375X 16240 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 9800 GT 512MB 9600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 6640 (69%)

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 (measured in MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This number 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 graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines 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 rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
