Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Performance-wise, the Radeon R9 M265X should in theory be a lot superior to the GeForce GT 210 in general. (explain)

Radeon R9 M265X 72000 MB/sec
GeForce GT 210 12800 MB/sec
Difference: 59200 (463%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 M265X should be a lot (approximately 388%) better at AF than the GeForce GT 210. (explain)

Radeon R9 M265X 23000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GT 210 4712 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 18288 (388%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon R9 M265X is the winner, by a large margin. (explain)

Radeon R9 M265X 9200 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GT 210 2356 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 6844 (290%)

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 data (measured in MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the video 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 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 worked out by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
