Radeon R5 M255 vs Radeon R7 M360

Intro

The Radeon R5 M255 has core clock speeds of 940 MHz on the GPU, and 1000 MHz on the 2048 MB of DDR3 RAM. It features 320 SPUs as well as 20 TAUs and 8 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon R7 M360, which uses a 28 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 1125 MHz. The DDR3 RAM is set to run at a frequency of 1000 MHz on this specific card. It features 384 SPUs along with 24 Texture Address Units and 8 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

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

Texel Rate

The Radeon R7 M360 will be a lot (more or less 44%) better at AF than the Radeon R5 M255. (explain)

Radeon R7 M360 27000 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R5 M255 18800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 8200 (44%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R7 M360 will be a small bit (approximately 20%) more effective at FSAA than the Radeon R5 M255, and able to handle higher resolutions while still performing well. (explain)

Radeon R7 M360 9000 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R5 M255 7520 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 1480 (20%)

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 information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at handling 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 figure is worked out by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
