GeForce GTX 970M vs Radeon RX 560

Intro

The GeForce GTX 970M uses a 28 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 924 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM runs at a speed of 1000 MHz on this specific card. It features 1280 SPUs as well as 80 Texture Address Units and 48 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 560, which features a clock frequency of 1175 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 7000 MHz. It also uses a 128-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 14 nm design. It features 1024 SPUs, 64 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GTX 970M 75 Watts
Radeon RX 560 80 Watts
Difference: 5 Watts (7%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically, the Radeon RX 560 should be a bit faster than the GeForce GTX 970M overall. (explain)

Radeon RX 560 114688 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 970M 96000 MB/sec
Difference: 18688 (19%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 560 should be just a bit (about 2%) better at AF than the GeForce GTX 970M. (explain)

Radeon RX 560 75200 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 970M 73920 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 1280 (2%)

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 970M is superior to the Radeon RX 560, and very much so. (explain)

GeForce GTX 970M 44352 Mpixels/sec
Radeon RX 560 18800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 25552 (136%)

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: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's 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 can be processed in one second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in a second.

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