Radeon R5 M230 vs Radeon R7 M360

Intro

The Radeon R5 M230 features a GPU core speed of 780 MHz, and the 2048 MB of DDR3 RAM is set to run at 1000 MHz through a 64-bit bus. It also is made up of 320 Stream Processors, 20 TAUs, and 4 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon R7 M360, which features a clock frequency of 1125 MHz and a DDR3 memory frequency of 1000 MHz. It also uses a 64-bit memory bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It is comprised of 384 SPUs, 24 TAUs, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Both cards have exactly the same bandwidth, so in theory they should have identical performance. (explain)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R7 M360 will be quite a bit (about 73%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the Radeon R5 M230. (explain)

Radeon R7 M360 27000 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R5 M230 15600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 11400 (73%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R7 M360 should be much (approximately 188%) more effective at anti-aliasing than the Radeon R5 M230, and should be capable of handling higher resolutions better. (explain)

Radeon R7 M360 9000 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R5 M230 3120 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 5880 (188%)

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 information (in units of MB per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface within a second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
