VS

GeForce GTX 950M vs Radeon R9 M365X

Intro

The GeForce GTX 950M has core clock speeds of 914 MHz on the GPU, and 1000 MHz on the 2048 MB of DDR3 RAM. It features 640 SPUs as well as 40 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon R9 M365X, which makes use of a 28 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 925 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a frequency of 1125 MHz on this specific model. It features 640 SPUs as well as 40 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon R9 M365X should perform much faster than the GeForce GTX 950M overall. (explain)

Radeon R9 M365X 72000 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 950M 32000 MB/sec
Difference: 40000 (125%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 M365X is a little bit (more or less 1%) better at AF than the GeForce GTX 950M. (explain)

Radeon R9 M365X 37000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 950M 36560 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 440 (1%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R9 M365X is just a bit (about 1%) better at AA than the GeForce GTX 950M, and also able to handle higher resolutions better. (explain)

Radeon R9 M365X 14800 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 950M 14624 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 176 (1%)

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 (counted in MB per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics chip could possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
