GeForce GTX 960M vs Radeon R9 M370X

Intro

The GeForce GTX 960M has a GPU core clock speed of 1096 MHz, and the 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory runs at 1000 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is made up of 640 SPUs, 40 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon R9 M370X, which comes with a core clock frequency of 800 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1125 MHz. It also features a 128-bit bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It is made up of 640 SPUs, 40 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

The Radeon R9 M370X should theoretically be a little bit faster than the GeForce GTX 960M overall. (explain)

Radeon R9 M370X 72000 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 960M 64000 MB/sec
Difference: 8000 (13%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 960M is a lot (more or less 37%) more effective at texture filtering than the Radeon R9 M370X. (explain)

GeForce GTX 960M 43840 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R9 M370X 32000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 11840 (37%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 960M should be quite a bit (approximately 37%) better at AA than the Radeon R9 M370X, and will be able to handle higher resolutions while still performing well. (explain)

GeForce GTX 960M 17536 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R9 M370X 12800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 4736 (37%)

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 max amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, the better 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the 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 most pixels the video card could possibly write to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
