Radeon HD 4730 vs Radeon R7 M260X

Intro

The Radeon HD 4730 has a GPU core clock speed of 700 MHz, and the 512 MB of GDDR5 memory runs at 900 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also features 640(128x5) Stream Processors, 32 TAUs, and 8 ROPs.

Compare that to the Radeon R7 M260X, which uses a 28 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 825 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM is set to run at a frequency of 1000 MHz on this specific card. It features 384 SPUs as well as 24 TAUs and 8 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

As far as performance goes, the Radeon R7 M260X should theoretically be just a bit superior to the Radeon HD 4730 overall. (explain)

Radeon R7 M260X 64000 MB/sec
Radeon HD 4730 57600 MB/sec
Difference: 6400 (11%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon HD 4730 is a small bit (more or less 13%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the Radeon R7 M260X. (explain)

Radeon HD 4730 22400 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R7 M260X 19800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 2600 (13%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R7 M260X should be a small bit (approximately 18%) faster with regards to AA than the Radeon HD 4730, and should be able to handle higher screen resolutions without slowing down too much. (explain)

Radeon R7 M260X 6600 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 4730 5600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 1000 (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 information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in a second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, the faster 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 can be processed per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the video card can possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
