In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 860M 2GB SLI are massively better than the AMD Radeon R9 M365X 4GB.

The GTX 860M has a 404 MHz higher core clock speed and 40 more Texture Mapping Units than the R9 M365X. This results in the GTX 860M providing 57.3 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 860M has a 404 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Render Output Units than the R9 M365X. This results in the GTX 860M providing 22.9 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The R9 M365X was released over a year more recently than the GTX 860M, and so the R9 M365X is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GTX 860M.

The GeForce GTX 860M 2GB SLI and the Radeon R9 M365X 4GB have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GTX 860M has 96.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the R9 M365X, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 860M is massively better than the R9 M365X.

The GeForce GTX 860M 2GB SLI has 1280 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon R9 M365X 4GB has 640. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 860M is 1896 and the actual shader performance of the R9 M365X is 340. The GTX 860M having 1556 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 860M delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the R9 M365X.

The GeForce GTX 860M 2GB SLI requires 120 Watts to run and the Radeon R9 M365X 4GB requires 50 Watts. The GTX 860M requires 70 Watts more than the R9 M365X to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 860M may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the R9 M365X.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 860M 2GB SLI is a solution of two GeForce GTX 860M 2GB put together using NVIDIA's SLI technology.

Architecture
Check the Page of [GeForce GTX 860M 2GB](http://www.game-debate.com/hardware/index.php?gid=2143&graphics=GeForce%20GTX%20860M%202GB) to know more about its Architecture.

GPU
The Central Unit of each GPU runs at 1029MHz and goes up to 1097MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory: Speed
Each GPU is equipped with fast GDDR5 and Accesses the Frame Buffer through a 128-bit Memory Interface. The Memory Clock Operates at 1253MHz.

Memory: Frame Buffer
Each GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 2GB.

Power Consumption
Power Consumption is around 120W.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks prove that at 1920x1080, the best suited resolution, GeForce GTX 860M 2GB SLI is around 20% faster than a Single GeForce GTX 880M.

System Suggestions
We recommend a High-End Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
Overview
Radeon R9 M365X 4GB is a Fast-Middle-Class Mobile Graphics Card based on the First Generation of the Graphics Core Next Architecture (GCN).



Architecture
Radeon R9 M365X 4GB Features a GPU Codenamed Venus PRO which is a First Gen GCN GPU and is identical to the Cape GPU used on the Desktop Radeon R7 250X.
Venus PRO has 10 Compute Units Unlocked and thus offers 640 Shader Processing Units, 40 TMUs and 16 ROPs.

GPU
The Central Unit is Clocked at 625MHz.

Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with fast GDDR5 and Accesses the Frame Buffer through a 128-bit Memory Interface. The Memory Clock Operates at 1000MHz.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 4GB. Under most circumstances, this only proves useful in certain 3D Games whose Settings Require Large Amounts of Memory.
However, because the GPU itself is too weak to work under other circumstances in which 4GB of Memory are needed - such as 4K Gaming, a Large Frame Buffer is mostly a Gimmick.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 50W, it is suited for large laptops.

Performance
Radeon R9 M365X 4GB is a Direct Rebrand of Radeon R9 M265X.
Performance is Comparable to the Desktop Radeon R7 250.

System Suggestions
Radeon R9 M365X 4GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. We recommend a Strong Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
