VS

GeForce GTX 950M vs Radeon HD 4670 1GB

Intro

The GeForce GTX 950M features a GPU clock speed of 914 MHz, and the 2048 MB of DDR3 RAM runs at 1000 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is made up of 640 SPUs, 40 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon HD 4670 1GB, which features a core clock speed of 750 MHz and a GDDR4/GDDR3/DDR3/DDR2 memory frequency of 1100 MHz. It also features a 128-bit bus, and makes use of a 55 nm design. It is comprised of 320(64x5) SPUs, 32 TAUs, and 8 ROPs.

GeForce GTX 950M 36560 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 4670 1GB 24000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 12560 (52%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 950M will be much (about 144%) better at anti-aliasing than the Radeon HD 4670 1GB, and should be capable of handling higher screen resolutions without slowing down too much. (explain)

GeForce GTX 950M 14624 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 4670 1GB 6000 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 8624 (144%)

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 largest amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the video card could possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
