GeForce GT 220 GDDR3 vs Radeon R9 M385X

Intro

The GeForce GT 220 GDDR3 comes with a GPU core clock speed of 625 MHz, and the 512 MB of GDDR3 RAM is set to run at 1012 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also features 48 SPUs, 16 TAUs, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon R9 M385X, which has a core clock speed of 1100 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1500 MHz. It also makes use of a 128-bit bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It is made up of 896 SPUs, 56 Texture Address Units, and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon R9 M385X should perform quite a bit faster than the GeForce GT 220 GDDR3 overall. (explain)

Radeon R9 M385X 96000 MB/sec
GeForce GT 220 GDDR3 32384 MB/sec
Difference: 63616 (196%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 M385X should be much (more or less 516%) faster with regards to AF than the GeForce GT 220 GDDR3. (explain)

Radeon R9 M385X 61600 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GT 220 GDDR3 10000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 51600 (516%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high screen resolution is important to you, then the Radeon R9 M385X is the winner, by far. (explain)

Radeon R9 M385X 17600 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GT 220 GDDR3 5000 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 12600 (252%)

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 megabytes per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in a second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better 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 texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This figure is worked out 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 texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the video card can possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
