Radeon HD 4550 512MB vs Radeon R7 M360

Intro

The Radeon HD 4550 512MB features a GPU core clock speed of 600 MHz, and the 512 MB of GDDR3 RAM is set to run at 800 MHz through a 64-bit bus. It also is comprised of 80(16x5) Stream Processors, 8 TAUs, and 4 Raster Operation Units.

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

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon R7 M360 should be 25% quicker than the Radeon HD 4550 512MB in general, due to its higher data rate. (explain)

Radeon R7 M360 16000 MB/sec
Radeon HD 4550 512MB 12800 MB/sec
Difference: 3200 (25%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R7 M360 will be quite a bit (about 463%) more effective at texture filtering than the Radeon HD 4550 512MB. (explain)

Radeon R7 M360 27000 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 4550 512MB 4800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 22200 (463%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R7 M360 will be a lot (more or less 275%) faster with regards to full screen anti-aliasing than the Radeon HD 4550 512MB, and also capable of handling higher resolutions better. (explain)

Radeon R7 M360 9000 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 4550 512MB 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: Bandwidth is the largest amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface within a second. It is calculated by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied 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 texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics card can possibly record to its 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 core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
