Radeon HD 5550 vs Radeon R7 M360

Intro

The Radeon HD 5550 has a core clock speed of 550 MHz and a DDR2 memory speed of 400 MHz. It also makes use of a 128-bit memory bus, and uses a 40 nm design. It is comprised of 320(64x5) SPUs, 16 Texture Address Units, and 8 ROPs.

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

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

The Radeon R7 M360, in theory, should be quite a bit faster than the Radeon HD 5550 in general. (explain)

Radeon R7 M360 16000 MB/sec
Radeon HD 5550 12800 MB/sec
Difference: 3200 (25%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R7 M360 will be much (about 207%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the Radeon HD 5550. (explain)

Radeon R7 M360 27000 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 5550 8800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 18200 (207%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high screen resolution is important to you, then the Radeon R7 M360 is the winner, by far. (explain)

Radeon R7 M360 9000 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 5550 4400 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 4600 (105%)

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 max amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in one second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's 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 texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units 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 applied per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the video card could possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called 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 - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
