VS

GeForce 825M vs Radeon R7 M360

Intro

The GeForce 825M has a GPU core speed of 850 MHz, and the 2048 MB of DDR3 memory runs at 900 MHz through a 64-bit bus. It also features 384 SPUs, 16 Texture Address Units, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Compare that to the Radeon R7 M360, which features a clock speed of 1125 MHz and a DDR3 memory frequency of 1000 MHz. It also features a 64-bit bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It is comprised of 384 SPUs, 24 TAUs, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically, the Radeon R7 M360 should perform a little bit faster than the GeForce 825M in general. (explain)

Radeon R7 M360 16000 MB/sec
GeForce 825M 14400 MB/sec
Difference: 1600 (11%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R7 M360 is a lot (more or less 99%) better at texture filtering than the GeForce 825M. (explain)

Radeon R7 M360 27000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 825M 13600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 13400 (99%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon R7 M360 is the winner, by far. (explain)

Radeon R7 M360 9000 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 825M 6800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 2200 (32%)

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 megabytes per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the graphics card can possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
