Radeon R5 M230 vs Radeon R7 M360

Intro

The Radeon R5 M230 features a GPU clock speed of 780 MHz, and the 2048 MB of DDR3 RAM runs at 1000 MHz through a 64-bit bus. It also features 320 Stream Processors, 20 TAUs, and 4 Raster Operation Units.

Compare that to the Radeon R7 M360, which has GPU core speed of 1125 MHz, and 2048 MB of DDR3 RAM running at 1000 MHz through a 64-bit bus. It also features 384 SPUs, 24 Texture Address Units, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

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

Texel Rate

The Radeon R7 M360 will be much (approximately 73%) better at 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 will be quite a bit (more or less 188%) better at AA than the Radeon R5 M230, and also should be able to handle higher resolutions without losing too much performance. (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 data (counted in MB per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher 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 the graphics card could possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out 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 rate is also dependant on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
