GeForce GTX 260 216SP 55 nm vs Radeon R9 M380

Intro

The GeForce GTX 260 216SP 55 nm comes with a GPU core clock speed of 576 MHz, and the 896 MB of GDDR3 memory runs at 999 MHz through a 448-bit bus. It also is comprised of 216 Stream Processors, 72 Texture Address Units, and 28 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon R9 M380, which features core clock speeds of 1000 MHz on the GPU, and 1500 MHz on the 4096 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 640 SPUs as well as 40 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the GeForce GTX 260 216SP 55 nm should be 17% faster than the Radeon R9 M380 overall, because of its greater data rate. (explain)

GeForce GTX 260 216SP 55 nm 111888 MB/sec
Radeon R9 M380 96000 MB/sec
Difference: 15888 (17%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 260 216SP 55 nm will be a little bit (more or less 4%) better at AF than the Radeon R9 M380. (explain)

GeForce GTX 260 216SP 55 nm 41472 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R9 M380 40000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 1472 (4%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 260 216SP 55 nm is just a bit (approximately 1%) better at full screen anti-aliasing than the Radeon R9 M380, and also should be able to handle higher resolutions while still performing well. (explain)

GeForce GTX 260 216SP 55 nm 16128 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R9 M380 16000 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 128 (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 megabytes per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in one second. The number is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core 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 processed per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
