Radeon HD 4550 256MB vs Radeon R9 M375

Intro

The Radeon HD 4550 256MB comes with a GPU clock speed of 600 MHz, and the 256 MB of DDR3 memory is set to run at 800 MHz through a 64-bit bus. It also is comprised of 80(16x5) Stream Processors, 8 Texture Address Units, and 4 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon R9 M375, which has a core clock speed of 1015 MHz and a DDR3 memory frequency of 1100 MHz. It also uses a 128-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It features 640 SPUs, 40 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon R9 M375 should perform much faster than the Radeon HD 4550 256MB in general. (explain)

Radeon R9 M375 35200 MB/sec
Radeon HD 4550 256MB 12800 MB/sec
Difference: 22400 (175%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 M375 is much (approximately 746%) more effective at texture filtering than the Radeon HD 4550 256MB. (explain)

Radeon R9 M375 40600 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 4550 256MB 4800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 35800 (746%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon R9 M375 is a better choice, and very much so. (explain)

Radeon R9 M375 16240 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 4550 256MB 2400 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 13840 (577%)

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 (measured in MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in one second. It is worked out by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR type memory, it 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 higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core clock 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 in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics chip could possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
