Radeon R7 370 4G vs Radeon R9 295X2

Intro

The Radeon R7 370 4G has core clock speeds of 975 MHz on the GPU, and 1400 MHz on the 4096 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 1024 SPUs along with 64 Texture Address Units and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon R9 295X2, which makes use of a 28 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 1018 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a speed of 1250 MHz on this particular card. It features 2816 SPUs as well as 176 Texture Address Units and 64 ROPs.

Radeon R7 370 4G 179200 MB/sec
Difference: 460800 (257%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 295X2 is quite a bit (about 474%) better at texture filtering than the Radeon R7 370 4G. (explain)

Radeon R9 295X2 358336 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R7 370 4G 62400 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 295936 (474%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R9 295X2 should be much (approximately 318%) faster with regards to AA than the Radeon R7 370 4G, and will be capable of handling higher screen resolutions while still performing well. (explain)

Radeon R9 295X2 130304 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R7 370 4G 31200 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 99104 (318%)

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.

One or more cards in this comparison are multi-core. This means that their bandwidth, texel and pixel rates are theoretically doubled - this does not mean the card will actually perform twice as fast, but only that it should in theory be able to. Actual game benchmarks will give a more accurate idea of what it's capable of.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card can possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. 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 potential to reach the max fill rate.
