Radeon HD 4830 512MB vs Radeon R9 M265X

Intro

The Radeon HD 4830 512MB comes with a GPU core clock speed of 575 MHz, and the 512 MB of GDDR3 memory is set to run at 900 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also features 640(128x5) Stream Processors, 32 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Compare that to the Radeon R9 M265X, which has GPU clock speed of 575 MHz, and 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory set to run at 1125 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is comprised of 640 SPUs, 40 Texture Address Units, and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

The Radeon R9 M265X should in theory be quite a bit faster than the Radeon HD 4830 512MB overall. (explain)

Radeon R9 M265X 72000 MB/sec
Radeon HD 4830 512MB 57600 MB/sec
Difference: 14400 (25%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 M265X should be much (more or less 25%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the Radeon HD 4830 512MB. (explain)

Radeon R9 M265X 23000 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 4830 512MB 18400 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 4600 (25%)

Pixel Rate

Both cards have exactly the same pixel fill rate, so theoretically they should be equally good at at full screen anti-aliasing, and be capable of handling the same resolutions. (explain)

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 (in units of MB per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's interface 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 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics card can possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of Render Output Units 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 output rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
