Radeon HD 3470 256MB vs Radeon R7 M265

Intro

The Radeon HD 3470 256MB comes with a GPU core speed of 800 MHz, and the 256 MB of DDR2 memory is set to run at 950 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is comprised of 40(8x5) Stream Processors, 4 TAUs, and 4 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon R7 M265, which uses a 28 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 725 MHz. The DDR3 memory is set to run at a frequency of 1000 MHz on this card. It features 384 SPUs as well as 24 Texture Address Units and 8 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the largest amount of information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 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 AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen 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 texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card can possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant 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 maximum fill rate.
