GeForce 940M vs Radeon RX 5700

Intro

The GeForce 940M has a GPU clock speed of 1072 MHz, and the 2048 MB of DDR3 RAM is set to run at 1000 MHz through a 64-bit bus. It also is comprised of 384 Stream Processors, 24 TAUs, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon RX 5700, which features core clock speeds of 1465 MHz on the GPU, and 1750 MHz on the 8096 MB of GDDR6 RAM. It features 2304 SPUs along with 144 TAUs and 64 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically, the Radeon RX 5700 should be quite a bit faster than the GeForce 940M in general. (explain)

Radeon RX 5700 458752 MB/sec
GeForce 940M 16000 MB/sec
Difference: 442752 (2767%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 5700 is much (more or less 720%) better at texture filtering than the GeForce 940M. (explain)

Radeon RX 5700 210960 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 940M 25728 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 185232 (720%)

Pixel Rate

If using high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon RX 5700 is the winner, by far. (explain)

Radeon RX 5700 93760 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 940M 8576 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 85184 (993%)

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 largest amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core speed of the card. 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 lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
