Radeon HD 6670 (OEM) vs Radeon R5 M255

Intro

The Radeon HD 6670 (OEM) makes use of a 40 nm design. AMD has set the core speed at 800 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM works at a frequency of 1000 MHz on this model. It features 480 SPUs as well as 24 TAUs and 8 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon R5 M255, which features a GPU core clock speed of 940 MHz, and 2048 MB of DDR3 RAM running at 1000 MHz through a 64-bit bus. It also features 320 SPUs, 20 TAUs, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Radeon R5 M255 18800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 400 (2%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R5 M255 should be a small bit (approximately 18%) better at full screen anti-aliasing than the Radeon HD 6670 (OEM), and also will be capable of handling higher resolutions more effectively. (explain)

Radeon R5 M255 7520 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 6670 (OEM) 6400 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 1120 (18%)

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.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
