Radeon R5 M330 vs Radeon R7 M260

Intro

The Radeon R5 M330 has a core clock speed of 1030 MHz and a DDR3 memory speed of 900 MHz. It also features a 64-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It is made up of 320 SPUs, 20 TAUs, and 8 ROPs.

Compare that to the Radeon R7 M260, which features GPU clock speed of 715 MHz, and 2048 MB of DDR3 RAM running at 1000 MHz through a 64-bit bus. It also is made up of 384 Stream Processors, 24 TAUs, and 8 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

As far as performance goes, the Radeon R7 M260 should in theory be a small bit superior to the Radeon R5 M330 overall. (explain)

Radeon R7 M260 16000 MB/sec
Radeon R5 M330 14400 MB/sec
Difference: 1600 (11%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R5 M330 is a little bit (more or less 20%) more effective at texture filtering than the Radeon R7 M260. (explain)

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

Pixel Rate

If running with a high resolution is important to you, then the Radeon R5 M330 is superior to the Radeon R7 M260, and very much so. (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: Bandwidth is the largest amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface within a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better 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 processed in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the video 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 video card can possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
