Radeon HD 4830 1GB vs Radeon R9 M370X

Intro

The Radeon HD 4830 1GB comes with a core clock frequency of 575 MHz and a GDDR4 memory frequency of 900 MHz. It also features a 256-bit bus, and makes use of a 55 nm design. It is made up of 640(128x5) SPUs, 32 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon R9 M370X, which features GPU clock speed of 800 MHz, and 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM running at 1125 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also features 640 Stream Processors, 40 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

The Radeon R9 M370X, in theory, should be quite a bit faster than the Radeon HD 4830 1GB in general. (explain)

Radeon R9 M370X 72000 MB/sec
Radeon HD 4830 1GB 57600 MB/sec
Difference: 14400 (25%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 M370X is a lot (more or less 74%) more effective at AF than the Radeon HD 4830 1GB. (explain)

Radeon R9 M370X 32000 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 4830 1GB 18400 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 13600 (74%)

Pixel Rate

If running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon R9 M370X is the winner, by a large margin. (explain)

Radeon R9 M370X 12800 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 4830 1GB 9200 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 3600 (39%)

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 information (in units of MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
