Radeon R5 M255 vs Radeon R7 M360

Intro

The Radeon R5 M255 has a GPU core speed of 940 MHz, and the 2048 MB of DDR3 RAM is set to run at 1000 MHz through a 64-bit bus. It also is comprised of 320 Stream Processors, 20 Texture Address Units, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon R7 M360, which uses a 28 nm design. AMD has set the core speed at 1125 MHz. The DDR3 RAM works at a speed of 1000 MHz on this model. It features 384 SPUs as well as 24 TAUs 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 should be much (more or less 44%) more effective at anisotropic filtering 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 is a little bit (approximately 20%) faster with regards to full screen anti-aliasing than the Radeon R5 M255, and able to handle higher resolutions more effectively. (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: Bandwidth is the max amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, the faster 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 applied per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the video 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 could possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel 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.
