Radeon HD 4850 X2 1GB vs Radeon R9 M365X

Intro

The Radeon HD 4850 X2 1GB uses a 55 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 625 MHz. The GDDR3 memory works at a speed of 993 MHz on this card. It features 800(160x5) SPUs along with 40 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon R9 M365X, which comes with a core clock frequency of 925 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1125 MHz. It also features a 128-bit bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It is made up of 640 SPUs, 40 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon HD 4850 X2 1GB is 77% quicker than the Radeon R9 M365X overall, because of its greater bandwidth. (explain)

Radeon HD 4850 X2 1GB 127104 MB/sec
Radeon R9 M365X 72000 MB/sec
Difference: 55104 (77%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon HD 4850 X2 1GB will be much (about 35%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the Radeon R9 M365X. (explain)

Radeon HD 4850 X2 1GB 50000 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R9 M365X 37000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 13000 (35%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon HD 4850 X2 1GB should be a lot (about 35%) better at AA than the Radeon R9 M365X, and also should be able to handle higher screen resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

Radeon HD 4850 X2 1GB 20000 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R9 M365X 14800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 5200 (35%)

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.

One or more cards in this comparison are multi-core. This means that their bandwidth, texel and pixel rates are theoretically doubled - this does not mean the card will actually perform twice as fast, but only that it should in theory be able to. Actual game benchmarks will give a more accurate idea of what it's capable of.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the max amount of information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once 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, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This is calculated by multiplying the total amount 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 in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also 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 of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
