Radeon HD 4850 2GB vs Radeon R9 M370X

Intro

The Radeon HD 4850 2GB features a GPU clock speed of 625 MHz, and the 2048 MB of GDDR4 RAM runs at 993 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is comprised of 800(160x5) SPUs, 40 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Compare that to the Radeon R9 M370X, which has GPU clock speed of 800 MHz, and 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory set to run at 1125 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is made up of 640 Stream Processors, 40 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically, the Radeon R9 M370X should perform just a bit faster than the Radeon HD 4850 2GB in general. (explain)

Radeon R9 M370X 72000 MB/sec
Radeon HD 4850 2GB 63552 MB/sec
Difference: 8448 (13%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 M370X should be a lot (approximately 28%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the Radeon HD 4850 2GB. (explain)

Radeon R9 M370X 32000 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 4850 2GB 25000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 7000 (28%)

Pixel Rate

If using high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon R9 M370X is superior to the Radeon HD 4850 2GB, and very much so. (explain)

Radeon R9 M370X 12800 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 4850 2GB 10000 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 2800 (28%)

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 maximum amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This is worked out by multiplying the total texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the 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 number of pixels the video card could possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
