GeForce GT 220 GDDR3 vs Radeon R9 M385X

Intro

The GeForce GT 220 GDDR3 has a GPU clock speed of 625 MHz, and the 512 MB of GDDR3 RAM runs at 1012 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also features 48 Stream Processors, 16 TAUs, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon R9 M385X, which uses a 28 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 1100 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM is set to run at a speed of 1500 MHz on this specific card. It features 896 SPUs along with 56 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically, 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 is much (about 516%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering 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

The Radeon R9 M385X is quite a bit (more or less 252%) better at anti-aliasing than the GeForce GT 220 GDDR3, and also will be capable of handling higher screen resolutions without slowing down too much. (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 (in units of MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface within a second. It's calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core 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 per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines 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 output rate is also dependant on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
