GeForce GTX 1630 vs Radeon R9 M380

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1630 has core speeds of 1740 MHz on the GPU, and 1500 MHz on the 4096 MB of GDDR6 memory. It features 512 SPUs along with 32 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon R9 M380, which features clock speeds of 1000 MHz on the GPU, and 1500 MHz on the 4096 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 640 SPUs as well as 40 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

The GeForce GTX 1630 should theoretically be just a bit faster than the Radeon R9 M380 overall. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1630 98304 MB/sec
Radeon R9 M380 96000 MB/sec
Difference: 2304 (2%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1630 is quite a bit (about 39%) better at texture filtering than the Radeon R9 M380. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1630 55680 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R9 M380 40000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 15680 (39%)

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 1630 is a better choice, by a large margin. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1630 27840 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R9 M380 16000 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 11840 (74%)

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 past the external memory interface in a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total amount of 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 applied per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics chip can possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
