GeForce GTX 1630 vs Radeon R9 M280X

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1630 uses a 12 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 1740 MHz. The GDDR6 RAM is set to run at a frequency of 1500 MHz on this particular card. It features 512 SPUs along with 32 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon R9 M280X, which features core clock speeds of 900 MHz on the GPU, and 1375 MHz on the 4096 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 896 SPUs as well as 56 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Radeon R9 M280X 88000 MB/sec
Difference: 10304 (12%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1630 is a little bit (approximately 10%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the Radeon R9 M280X. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1630 55680 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R9 M280X 50400 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 5280 (10%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high screen resolution is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 1630 is the winner, by a large margin. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1630 27840 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R9 M280X 14400 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 13440 (93%)

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 data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR RAM, 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 anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the card will be at 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 could possibly write to its local memory per 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 called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
