In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R7 M260 v2 are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 9800M GT.

The R7 M260 was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 9800M GT, and so the R7 M260 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce 9800M GT when running the latest games.

The R7 M260 has 3584 MB more video memory than the GeForce 9800M GT, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The GeForce 9800M GT has 22.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the R7 M260, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 9800M GT is slightly better than the R7 M260.

The Radeon R7 M260 v2 has 384 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 9800M GT has 96. However, the actual shader performance of the R7 M260 is 233 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 9800M GT is 120. The R7 M260 having 113 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GeForce 9800M GT performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The R7 M260 transistor size technology is 37 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce 9800M GT. This means that the R7 M260 is expected to run much cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce 9800M GT.

The Radeon R7 M260 v2 requires 35 Watts to run and the GeForce 9800M GT requires 65 Watts. The GeForce 9800M GT requires 30 Watts more than the R7 M260 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GeForce 9800M GT to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the R7 M260.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewPLEASE NOTE THAT THIS GRAPHICS CARD HAS 2 VARIANTS: DDR3 + 64-bit AND DDR3 + 128-bit. THIS IS THE DDR3 + 128-bit VARIANT.

Radeon R7 M260 is a middle-class mobile graphics card. It is based on 28nm Mars PRO Core of the GCN 1.1 architecture.

Radeon R7 M260 offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 8 ROPs, on a 128-bit of DDR3. While the central unit runs at 620MHz and goes up to 715MHz, in Turbo Mode, the memory clock operates at 900MHz. It has a rated TDP board of around 35W.
This version is better suited for higher resolutions but it will still perform poorly at anything higher than 1080p.
NVIDIA GeForce 9800M GT GPUs deliver optimized performance for immersive gaming on-the-go. Powering the next generation of visual computing, blazing-fast mobile gaming, and the ultimate HD experience with PureVideo HD technology. This product is also enabled for CUDA applications and is NVIDIA PhysX-ready.
