The Radeon R5 M330 is a small bit (approximately 20%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the Radeon R7 M260. (explain)

Radeon R5 M330 20600 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R7 M260 17160 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 3440 (20%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R5 M330 is quite a bit (approximately 44%) better at FSAA than the Radeon R7 M260, and will be able to handle higher resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

Radeon R5 M330 8240 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R7 M260 5720 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 2520 (44%)

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 maximum amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the graphics 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 amount of pixels the graphics card could possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the core clock speed. 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 rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
