Radeon HD 5830 vs Radeon R9 M290X

Intro

The Radeon HD 5830 has a GPU core clock speed of 800 MHz, and the 1024 MB of GDDR5 RAM is set to run at 1000 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is made up of 1120(224x5) Stream Processors, 56 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Compare that to the Radeon R9 M290X, which features clock speeds of 850 MHz on the GPU, and 1200 MHz on the 4096 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 1280 SPUs along with 80 Texture Address Units and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Radeon R9 M290X 100 Watts
Radeon HD 5830 175 Watts
Difference: 75 Watts (75%)

Memory Bandwidth

As far as performance goes, the Radeon R9 M290X should theoretically be a small bit superior to the Radeon HD 5830 in general. (explain)

Radeon R9 M290X 153600 MB/sec
Radeon HD 5830 128000 MB/sec
Difference: 25600 (20%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 M290X should be quite a bit (about 52%) more effective at texture filtering than the Radeon HD 5830. (explain)

Radeon R9 M290X 68000 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 5830 44800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 23200 (52%)

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon R9 M290X is the winner, and very much so. (explain)

Radeon R9 M290X 27200 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 5830 12800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 14400 (113%)

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 max amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This number is calculated 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 graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
