Radeon HD 4550 256MB vs Radeon R7 M360

Intro

The Radeon HD 4550 256MB has a GPU core speed of 600 MHz, and the 256 MB of DDR3 memory is set to run at 800 MHz through a 64-bit bus. It also is comprised of 80(16x5) Stream Processors, 8 Texture Address Units, and 4 Raster Operation Units.

Compare that to the Radeon R7 M360, which has clock speeds of 1125 MHz on the GPU, and 1000 MHz on the 2048 MB of DDR3 RAM. It features 384 SPUs as well as 24 TAUs and 8 Rasterization Operator Units.

The Radeon R7 M360, in theory, should perform much faster than the Radeon HD 4550 256MB overall. (explain)

Radeon R7 M360 16000 MB/sec
Radeon HD 4550 256MB 12800 MB/sec
Difference: 3200 (25%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R7 M360 will be quite a bit (more or less 463%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the Radeon HD 4550 256MB. (explain)

Radeon R7 M360 27000 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 4550 256MB 4800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 22200 (463%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R7 M360 will be much (more or less 275%) better at FSAA than the Radeon HD 4550 256MB, and should be capable of handling higher resolutions without slowing down too much. (explain)

Radeon R7 M360 9000 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 4550 256MB 2400 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 6600 (275%)

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 data (counted in MB per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This is worked out 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 texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the graphics card can possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
