GeForce GTX 260 216SP 55 nm vs Radeon R9 M380

Intro

The GeForce GTX 260 216SP 55 nm makes use of a 55 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 576 MHz. The GDDR3 RAM runs at a frequency of 999 MHz on this specific model. It features 216 SPUs as well as 72 Texture Address Units and 28 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all of that to the Radeon R9 M380, which features a GPU core clock speed of 1000 MHz, and 4096 MB of GDDR5 memory running at 1500 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also features 640 SPUs, 40 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

The GeForce GTX 260 216SP 55 nm, in theory, should be a bit faster than the Radeon R9 M380 overall. (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 should be just a bit (about 4%) faster with regards to texture filtering 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 should be a little bit (more or less 1%) more effective at FSAA than the Radeon R9 M380, and also will be able to handle higher resolutions without slowing down too much. (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 max amount of data (counted in MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR 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 number of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the video 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 maximum amount of pixels the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
