GeForce 8600 GT 512MB GDDR3 vs Radeon R9 M375X

Intro

The GeForce 8600 GT 512MB GDDR3 comes with a clock frequency of 540 MHz and a GDDR3 memory frequency of 700 MHz. It also uses a 128-bit bus, and uses a 80 nm design. It features 32 SPUs, 16 Texture Address Units, and 8 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon R9 M375X, which features core clock speeds of 1015 MHz on the GPU, and 1125 MHz on the 4096 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 640 SPUs as well as 40 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon R9 M375X is 221% quicker than the GeForce 8600 GT 512MB GDDR3 overall, due to its higher data rate. (explain)

Radeon R9 M375X 72000 MB/sec
GeForce 8600 GT 512MB GDDR3 22400 MB/sec
Difference: 49600 (221%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 M375X will be much (more or less 370%) better at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce 8600 GT 512MB GDDR3. (explain)

Radeon R9 M375X 40600 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 8600 GT 512MB GDDR3 8640 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 31960 (370%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high resolution is important to you, then the Radeon R9 M375X is superior to the GeForce 8600 GT 512MB GDDR3, and very much so. (explain)

Radeon R9 M375X 16240 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 8600 GT 512MB GDDR3 4320 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 11920 (276%)

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 data (counted in MB per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR 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 amount of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the video 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 the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. 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 quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
