VS

GeForce 930M vs Radeon R9 M375

Intro

The GeForce 930M comes with a GPU core clock speed of 928 MHz, and the 2048 MB of DDR3 memory is set to run at 900 MHz through a 64-bit bus. It also features 384 SPUs, 24 Texture Address Units, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Compare that to the Radeon R9 M375, which makes use of a 28 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 1015 MHz. The DDR3 RAM runs at a speed of 1100 MHz on this card. It features 640 SPUs as well as 40 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

The Radeon R9 M375 should theoretically perform 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 a lot (approximately 82%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the GeForce 930M. (explain)

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

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon R9 M375 is the winner, by far. (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: Bandwidth is the max amount of data (counted in MB per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the graphics card can possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
