Radeon HD 4550 512MB vs Radeon R7 M360

Intro

The Radeon HD 4550 512MB comes with core clock speeds of 600 MHz on the GPU, and 800 MHz on the 512 MB of GDDR3 RAM. It features 80(16x5) SPUs along with 8 Texture Address Units and 4 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specifications 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 TAUs, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically, the Radeon R7 M360 should be quite a bit faster than the Radeon HD 4550 512MB in general. (explain)

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

Texel Rate

The Radeon R7 M360 is much (about 463%) more effective at anisotropic 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

If running with a high screen resolution is important to you, then the Radeon R7 M360 is the winner, and very much so. (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 maximum amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in a second. It's calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. 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 reach the maximum fill rate.
