GeForce 930M vs Radeon R7 M360

Intro

The GeForce 930M uses a 28 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 928 MHz. The DDR3 memory runs at a speed of 900 MHz on this model. It features 384 SPUs as well as 24 TAUs and 8 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon R7 M360, which has a clock speed of 1125 MHz and a DDR3 memory frequency of 1000 MHz. It also uses a 64-bit memory bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It is comprised of 384 SPUs, 24 Texture Address Units, and 8 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon R7 M360 is 11% faster than the GeForce 930M in general, because of its higher data rate. (explain)

Radeon R7 M360 16000 MB/sec
GeForce 930M 14400 MB/sec
Difference: 1600 (11%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R7 M360 should be much (about 21%) more effective at AF than the GeForce 930M. (explain)

Radeon R7 M360 27000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 930M 22272 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 4728 (21%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R7 M360 will be quite a bit (approximately 21%) faster with regards to anti-aliasing than the GeForce 930M, and will be capable of handling higher screen resolutions better. (explain)

Radeon R7 M360 9000 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 930M 7424 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 1576 (21%)

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 (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in one second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card can possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on 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 potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
