Radeon HD 4650 512MB vs Radeon R5 M255

Intro

The Radeon HD 4650 512MB uses a 55 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 600 MHz. The DDR2 memory is set to run at a frequency of 500 MHz on this specific card. It features 320(64x5) SPUs as well as 32 TAUs and 8 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon R5 M255, which uses a 28 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 940 MHz. The DDR3 memory is set to run at a frequency of 1000 MHz on this card. It features 320 SPUs as well as 20 TAUs and 8 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Both cards have the exact same bandwidth, so in theory they should perform exactly the same. (explain)

Texel Rate

The Radeon HD 4650 512MB should be a small bit (more or less 2%) more effective at texture filtering than the Radeon R5 M255. (explain)

Radeon HD 4650 512MB 19200 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R5 M255 18800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 400 (2%)

Pixel Rate

If running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon R5 M255 is a better choice, by a large margin. (explain)

Radeon R5 M255 7520 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 4650 512MB 4800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 2720 (57%)

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: Bandwidth is the max amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface within a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
