GeForce 940M vs Radeon RX 5600

Intro

The GeForce 940M comes with a GPU core speed of 1072 MHz, and the 2048 MB of DDR3 memory is set to run at 1000 MHz through a 64-bit bus. It also is made up of 384 Stream Processors, 24 TAUs, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 5600, which comes with core clock speeds of 1375 MHz on the GPU, and 1500 MHz on the 6144 MB of GDDR6 memory. It features 2048 SPUs along with 128 TAUs and 64 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon RX 5600 should perform much faster than the GeForce 940M in general. (explain)

Radeon RX 5600 294912 MB/sec
GeForce 940M 16000 MB/sec
Difference: 278912 (1743%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 5600 is much (about 584%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the GeForce 940M. (explain)

Radeon RX 5600 176000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 940M 25728 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 150272 (584%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon RX 5600 should be a lot (approximately 926%) more effective at FSAA than the GeForce 940M, and also will be able to handle higher screen resolutions without slowing down too much. (explain)

Radeon RX 5600 88000 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 940M 8576 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 79424 (926%)

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 moved past the external memory interface in a second. It is worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, the faster 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the video 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 that the graphics chip could possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka 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 - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
