GeForce 9600 GT 512MB vs Radeon R9 M380

Intro

The GeForce 9600 GT 512MB comes with core speeds of 650 MHz on the GPU, and 900 MHz on the 512 MB of GDDR3 memory. It features 64 SPUs along with 32 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon R9 M380, which features a core clock speed of 1000 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1500 MHz. It also makes use of a 128-bit memory bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It is comprised of 640 SPUs, 40 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

The Radeon R9 M380, in theory, should perform a lot faster than the GeForce 9600 GT 512MB in general. (explain)

Radeon R9 M380 96000 MB/sec
GeForce 9600 GT 512MB 57600 MB/sec
Difference: 38400 (67%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 M380 will be much (more or less 92%) better at texture filtering than the GeForce 9600 GT 512MB. (explain)

Radeon R9 M380 40000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 9600 GT 512MB 20800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 19200 (92%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R9 M380 should be quite a bit (more or less 54%) faster with regards to full screen anti-aliasing than the GeForce 9600 GT 512MB, and should be capable of handling higher resolutions while still performing well. (explain)

Radeon R9 M380 16000 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 9600 GT 512MB 10400 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 5600 (54%)

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 megabytes per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface within a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR memory, it should 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 AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

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

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