GeForce GTX 965M vs Radeon R9 M370X

Intro

The GeForce GTX 965M has a core clock frequency of 944 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1000 MHz. It also features a 128-bit bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It is made up of 1024 SPUs, 64 Texture Address Units, and 32 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon R9 M370X, which uses a 28 nm design. AMD has set the core speed at 800 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a speed of 1125 MHz on this particular model. It features 640 SPUs along with 40 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Radeon R9 M370X 72000 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 965M 64000 MB/sec
Difference: 8000 (13%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 965M should be much (more or less 89%) faster with regards to AF than the Radeon R9 M370X. (explain)

GeForce GTX 965M 60416 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R9 M370X 32000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 28416 (89%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 965M will be much (more or less 136%) more effective at anti-aliasing than the Radeon R9 M370X, and also will be capable of handling higher resolutions while still performing well. (explain)

GeForce GTX 965M 30208 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R9 M370X 12800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 17408 (136%)

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 maximum amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in one second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory 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 memory bandwidth, 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 are processed per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in one second.

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