In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 970MX 3GB are massively better than the AMD Radeon R9 M365X 4GB.

The GTX 970MX has a 299 MHz higher core clock speed and 48 more Texture Mapping Units than the R9 M365X. This results in the GTX 970MX providing 56.3 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 970MX has a 299 MHz higher core clock speed and 40 more Render Output Units than the R9 M365X. This results in the GTX 970MX providing 41.7 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 970MX 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 R9 M365X has 1024 MB more video memory than the GTX 970MX, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GTX 970MX has superior memory performance.

The GTX 970MX has 56.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the R9 M365X, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 970MX is much better than the R9 M365X.

The GeForce GTX 970MX 3GB has 1408 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon R9 M365X 4GB has 640. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 970MX is 1973 and the actual shader performance of the R9 M365X is 340. The GTX 970MX having 1633 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 970MX delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the R9 M365X.

The GeForce GTX 970MX 3GB requires 75 Watts to run and the Radeon R9 M365X 4GB requires 50 Watts. The GTX 970MX requires 25 Watts more than the R9 M365X to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GTX 970MX to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the R9 M365X.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 970MX 3GB is a High-End Mobile Graphics Card based on the First Revision of the Maxwell architecture.

Architecture
GeForce GTX 970MX 3GB Features a GPU Codenamed GM204-??? which is a Second Gen Maxwell GPU.
It has 11 Stream Multiprocessors activated and offers 1408 Shader Processing Units, 88 TMUs and 56 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 192-bit Memory Interface. The Memory Clock Operates at 1250MHz.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 3GB.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 75W, it may only be used on Large Notebooks.

Performance
Product Not Released Yet.

System Suggestions
GeForce GTX 970MX 3GB 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.
