Radeon R7 360 vs Radeon R9 M280X

Intro

The Radeon R7 360 comes with a clock frequency of 1050 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1625 MHz. It also uses a 128-bit bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It features 768 SPUs, 48 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon R9 M280X, which comes with core speeds of 900 MHz on the GPU, and 1375 MHz on the 4096 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 896 SPUs along with 56 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon R9 M280X 75 Watts
Radeon R7 360 100 Watts
Difference: 25 Watts (33%)

Memory Bandwidth

The Radeon R7 360 should in theory be a small bit faster than the Radeon R9 M280X overall. (explain)

Radeon R7 360 104000 MB/sec
Radeon R9 M280X 88000 MB/sec
Difference: 16000 (18%)

Texel Rate

Both cards have the exact same texel fill rate, so theoretically they should be equally good at at anisotropic filtering. (explain)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R7 360 will be just a bit (about 17%) better at full screen anti-aliasing than the Radeon R9 M280X, and should be capable of handling higher screen resolutions more effectively. (explain)

Radeon R7 360 16800 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R9 M280X 14400 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 2400 (17%)

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 data (measured in MB per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the video card could possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate is also dependant on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
