GeForce GT 130 vs Radeon R5 M330

Intro

The GeForce GT 130 uses a 55 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 500 MHz. The DDR2 RAM runs at a speed of 250 MHz on this specific card. It features 48 SPUs as well as 24 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon R5 M330, which features core speeds of 1030 MHz on the GPU, and 900 MHz on the 2048 MB of DDR3 RAM. It features 320 SPUs along with 20 Texture Address Units and 8 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

The Radeon R5 M330 should in theory perform a little bit faster than the GeForce GT 130 in general. (explain)

Radeon R5 M330 14400 MB/sec
GeForce GT 130 12000 MB/sec
Difference: 2400 (20%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R5 M330 should be quite a bit (more or less 72%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GT 130. (explain)

Radeon R5 M330 20600 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GT 130 12000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 8600 (72%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R5 M330 should be a little bit (about 3%) faster with regards to FSAA than the GeForce GT 130, and also able to handle higher screen resolutions better. (explain)

Radeon R5 M330 8240 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GT 130 8000 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 240 (3%)

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 (measured in MB per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better 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 can be processed per second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics card could possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
