Radeon R5 M255 vs Radeon R7 M260

Intro

The Radeon R5 M255 features a clock speed of 940 MHz and a DDR3 memory frequency of 1000 MHz. It also features a 64-bit memory bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It is comprised of 320 SPUs, 20 Texture Address Units, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon R7 M260, which features clock speeds of 715 MHz on the GPU, and 1000 MHz on the 2048 MB of DDR3 RAM. It features 384 SPUs as well as 24 Texture Address Units and 8 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

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

Texel Rate

The Radeon R5 M255 should be a little bit (about 10%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the Radeon R7 M260. (explain)

Radeon R5 M255 18800 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R7 M260 17160 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 1640 (10%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R5 M255 is quite a bit (about 31%) faster with regards to anti-aliasing than the Radeon R7 M260, and also capable of handling higher resolutions while still performing well. (explain)

Radeon R5 M255 7520 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R7 M260 5720 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 1800 (31%)

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 largest amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This is calculated by multiplying the total amount of 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 per second.

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