GeForce GTX 950M vs Radeon R9 M375

Intro

The GeForce GTX 950M has core clock speeds of 914 MHz on the GPU, and 1000 MHz on the 2048 MB of DDR3 memory. It features 640 SPUs along with 40 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon R9 M375, which makes use of a 28 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 1015 MHz. The DDR3 RAM is set to run at a frequency of 1100 MHz on this particular model. It features 640 SPUs as well as 40 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon R9 M375 will be 10% faster than the GeForce GTX 950M in general, because of its higher bandwidth. (explain)

Radeon R9 M375 35200 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 950M 32000 MB/sec
Difference: 3200 (10%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 M375 will be just a bit (more or less 11%) more effective at texture filtering than the GeForce GTX 950M. (explain)

Radeon R9 M375 40600 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 950M 36560 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 4040 (11%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R9 M375 should be a small bit (more or less 11%) more effective at FSAA than the GeForce GTX 950M, and will be capable of handling higher screen resolutions more effectively. (explain)

Radeon R9 M375 16240 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 950M 14624 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 1616 (11%)

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 transferred past the external memory interface within a second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, 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 texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the video card could possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
