GeForce 810M vs Radeon R7 M260

Intro

The GeForce 810M features a clock frequency of 738 MHz and a DDR3 memory speed of 900 MHz. It also uses a 64-bit bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It is comprised of 48 SPUs, 8 Texture Address Units, and 4 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon R7 M260, which comes with a clock frequency of 715 MHz and a DDR3 memory speed of 1000 MHz. It also uses a 64-bit bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It is comprised of 384 SPUs, 24 Texture Address Units, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

As far as performance goes, the Radeon R7 M260 should theoretically be a little bit superior to the GeForce 810M in general. (explain)

Radeon R7 M260 16000 MB/sec
GeForce 810M 14400 MB/sec
Difference: 1600 (11%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R7 M260 is much (about 191%) faster with regards to AF than the GeForce 810M. (explain)

Radeon R7 M260 17160 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 810M 5904 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 11256 (191%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high screen resolution is important to you, then the Radeon R7 M260 is the winner, and very much so. (explain)

Radeon R7 M260 5720 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 810M 2952 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 2768 (94%)

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 (measured in MB per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface within a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the faster 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 are applied in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the card's 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 fill 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 reach the max fill rate.
