In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 980MX 8GB are massively better than the AMD Radeon R9 M365X 4GB.

The GTX 980MX has a 413 MHz higher core clock speed and 64 more Texture Mapping Units than the R9 M365X. This results in the GTX 980MX providing 83 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 980MX has a 413 MHz higher core clock speed and 48 more Render Output Units than the R9 M365X. This results in the GTX 980MX providing 56.4 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 GTX 980MX was released less than a year after the R9 M365X, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GTX 980MX has 4096 MB more video memory than the R9 M365X, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 980MX also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 980MX has 96.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the R9 M365X, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 980MX is massively better than the R9 M365X.

The GeForce GTX 980MX 8GB has 1664 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon R9 M365X 4GB has 640. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 980MX is 2534 and the actual shader performance of the R9 M365X is 340. The GTX 980MX having 2194 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 980MX delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the R9 M365X.

The GeForce GTX 980MX 8GB requires 122 Watts to run and the Radeon R9 M365X 4GB requires 50 Watts. The GTX 980MX requires 72 Watts more than the R9 M365X to run. The difference is significant enough that the GTX 980MX may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the R9 M365X.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 980MX 8GB is a High-End Mobile Graphics Card based on the First Revision of the Maxwell architecture.

Architecture
GeForce GTX 980MX 8GB Features a GPU Codenamed GM204-??? which is a Second Gen Maxwell GPU and is identical to the GM204-200-A1 used on the Desktop GeForce GTX 970.
It has 13 Stream Multiprocessors activated and offers 1664 Shader Processing Units, 104 TMUs and 64 ROPs.

GPU
The central unit runs at ????MHz and goes up to ????MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with fast GDDR5 and Accesses the Frame Buffer through a 256-bit Memory Interface. The Memory Clock Operates at 1250MHz.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 8GB.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 122W, it may only be used on Very Large Notebooks.

Performance
Product Not Released Yet.

System Suggestions
GeForce GTX 980MX 8GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. 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.
