GeForce GTX 1630 vs Radeon R9 M280X

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1630 uses a 12 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 1740 MHz. The GDDR6 memory is set to run at a frequency of 1500 MHz on this particular model. It features 512 SPUs as well as 32 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon R9 M280X, which comes with GPU core speed of 900 MHz, and 4096 MB of GDDR5 RAM set to run at 1375 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is comprised of 896 SPUs, 56 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Radeon R9 M280X 50400 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 5280 (10%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1630 should be a lot (about 93%) better at full screen anti-aliasing than the Radeon R9 M280X, and also able to handle higher screen resolutions while still performing well. (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 max amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher 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 texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, 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 the video card can possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). 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.
