Radeon HD 4550 256MB vs Radeon R5 M330

Intro

The Radeon HD 4550 256MB features clock speeds of 600 MHz on the GPU, and 800 MHz on the 256 MB of DDR3 memory. It features 80(16x5) SPUs as well as 8 Texture Address Units and 4 Rasterization Operator Units.

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 works at a speed of 900 MHz on this particular model. It features 320 SPUs along with 20 TAUs and 8 Rasterization Operator Units.

The Radeon R5 M330 is a lot (more or less 329%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the Radeon HD 4550 256MB. (explain)

Radeon R5 M330 20600 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 4550 256MB 4800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 15800 (329%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R5 M330 should be quite a bit (about 243%) faster with regards to FSAA than the Radeon HD 4550 256MB, and also will be capable of handling higher screen resolutions better. (explain)

Radeon R5 M330 8240 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 4550 256MB 2400 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 5840 (243%)

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 data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface within a second. It is calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 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, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount 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 speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs 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 output rate is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
