Radeon HD 5550 vs Radeon R5 M330

Intro

The Radeon HD 5550 comes with a GPU clock speed of 550 MHz, and the 512 MB of DDR2 RAM is set to run at 400 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is comprised of 320(64x5) Stream Processors, 16 TAUs, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Compare that to the Radeon R5 M330, which makes use of a 28 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 1030 MHz. The DDR3 RAM runs at a frequency of 900 MHz on this specific card. It features 320 SPUs along with 20 TAUs and 8 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

The Radeon R5 M330 should in theory perform just a bit faster than the Radeon HD 5550 overall. (explain)

Radeon R5 M330 14400 MB/sec
Radeon HD 5550 12800 MB/sec
Difference: 1600 (13%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R5 M330 should be much (more or less 134%) better at anisotropic filtering than the Radeon HD 5550. (explain)

Radeon R5 M330 20600 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 5550 8800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 11800 (134%)

Pixel Rate

If running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon R5 M330 is a better choice, and very much so. (explain)

Radeon R5 M330 8240 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 5550 4400 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 3840 (87%)

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 (measured in MB per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in a second. It's calculated by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, 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 maximum number of pixels the video card can possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
