GeForce 930M vs Radeon R9 M375

Intro

The GeForce 930M comes with core speeds of 928 MHz on the GPU, and 900 MHz on the 2048 MB of DDR3 RAM. It features 384 SPUs as well as 24 Texture Address Units and 8 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon R9 M375, which features core clock speeds of 1015 MHz on the GPU, and 1100 MHz on the 4096 MB of DDR3 memory. It features 640 SPUs along with 40 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon R9 M375 should be quite a bit faster than the GeForce 930M in general. (explain)

Radeon R9 M375 35200 MB/sec
GeForce 930M 14400 MB/sec
Difference: 20800 (144%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 M375 will be quite a bit (more or less 82%) better at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce 930M. (explain)

Radeon R9 M375 40600 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 930M 22272 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 18328 (82%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R9 M375 should be much (about 119%) more effective at FSAA than the GeForce 930M, and also will be capable of handling higher screen resolutions better. (explain)

Radeon R9 M375 16240 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 930M 7424 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 8816 (119%)

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 (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in a second. It is calculated 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 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 high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core clock 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 number of pixels that the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
