Radeon R7 M260 vs Radeon R7 M360

Intro

The Radeon R7 M260 features a GPU clock speed of 715 MHz, and the 2048 MB of DDR3 RAM runs at 1000 MHz through a 64-bit bus. It also features 384 Stream Processors, 24 Texture Address Units, and 8 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon R7 M360, which uses a 28 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 1125 MHz. The DDR3 memory is set to run at a frequency of 1000 MHz on this specific model. It features 384 SPUs as well as 24 Texture Address Units and 8 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Both cards have the exact same bandwidth, so theoretically they should have identical performance. (explain)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R7 M360 will be quite a bit (about 57%) better at texture filtering than the Radeon R7 M260. (explain)

Radeon R7 M360 27000 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R7 M260 17160 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 9840 (57%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high resolution is important to you, then the Radeon R7 M360 is a better choice, and very much so. (explain)

Radeon R7 M360 9000 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R7 M260 5720 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 3280 (57%)

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 (measured in MB 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 speed. If the card has DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. 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 per second. This is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card can possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
