GeForce GT 210 vs Radeon R9 M385X

Intro

The GeForce GT 210 has core speeds of 589 MHz on the GPU, and 800 MHz on the 512 MB of DDR3 RAM. It features 16 SPUs along with 8 Texture Address Units and 4 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all of that to the Radeon R9 M385X, which uses a 28 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 1100 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM is set to run at a frequency of 1500 MHz on this particular card. It features 896 SPUs along with 56 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon R9 M385X will be 650% quicker than the GeForce GT 210 overall, due to its greater bandwidth. (explain)

Radeon R9 M385X 96000 MB/sec
GeForce GT 210 12800 MB/sec
Difference: 83200 (650%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 M385X should be quite a bit (more or less 1207%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GT 210. (explain)

Radeon R9 M385X 61600 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GT 210 4712 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 56888 (1207%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R9 M385X will be quite a bit (about 647%) faster with regards to FSAA than the GeForce GT 210, and also capable of handling higher screen resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

Radeon R9 M385X 17600 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GT 210 2356 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 15244 (647%)

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 largest amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster 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 can be applied in one second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the video 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 its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
