Radeon HD 5450 vs Radeon R7 M260

Intro

The Radeon HD 5450 has core clock speeds of 650 MHz on the GPU, and 800 MHz on the 512 MB of DDR3 memory. It features 80(16x5) SPUs as well as 8 TAUs and 4 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon R7 M260, which comes with a core clock frequency of 715 MHz and a DDR3 memory frequency of 1000 MHz. It also makes use of a 64-bit memory bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It features 384 SPUs, 24 Texture Address Units, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

The Radeon R7 M260 should theoretically perform a lot faster than the Radeon HD 5450 in general. (explain)

Radeon R7 M260 16000 MB/sec
Radeon HD 5450 12800 MB/sec
Difference: 3200 (25%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R7 M260 is a lot (more or less 230%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the Radeon HD 5450. (explain)

Radeon R7 M260 17160 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 5450 5200 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 11960 (230%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high resolution is important to you, then the Radeon R7 M260 is a better choice, by a large margin. (explain)

Radeon R7 M260 5720 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 5450 2600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 3120 (120%)

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 largest amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card can possibly write to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the number of Render Output Units 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 fill rate also depends on quite a few 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.
