Radeon HD 5550 vs Radeon R5 M330

Intro

The Radeon HD 5550 uses a 40 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 550 MHz. The DDR2 memory is set to run at a frequency of 400 MHz on this specific model. It features 320(64x5) SPUs along with 16 TAUs and 8 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon R5 M330, which makes use of a 28 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 1030 MHz. The DDR3 RAM runs at a speed of 900 MHz on this particular model. It features 320 SPUs along with 20 Texture Address Units and 8 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Performance-wise, the Radeon R5 M330 should theoretically be a little bit superior to the Radeon HD 5550 in general. (explain)

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

Texel Rate

The Radeon R5 M330 should be quite a bit (approximately 134%) faster with regards to AF than the Radeon HD 5550. (explain)

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

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R5 M330 will be much (more or less 87%) better at full screen anti-aliasing than the Radeon HD 5550, and also able to handle higher resolutions while still performing well. (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: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units 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 number of pixels the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
