Radeon R7 360 vs Radeon R9 M385X

Intro

The Radeon R7 360 has a GPU core speed of 1050 MHz, and the 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM is set to run at 1625 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is comprised of 768 Stream Processors, 48 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all of that to the Radeon R9 M385X, which comes with a core clock frequency of 1100 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1500 MHz. It also uses a 128-bit bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It is comprised of 896 SPUs, 56 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically, the Radeon R7 360 should perform a small bit faster than the Radeon R9 M385X in general. (explain)

Radeon R7 360 104000 MB/sec
Radeon R9 M385X 96000 MB/sec
Difference: 8000 (8%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 M385X will be quite a bit (approximately 22%) more effective at texture filtering than the Radeon R7 360. (explain)

Radeon R9 M385X 61600 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R7 360 50400 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 11200 (22%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high screen resolution is important to you, then the Radeon R9 M385X is superior to the Radeon R7 360, not by a very large margin though. (explain)

Radeon R9 M385X 17600 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R7 360 16800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 800 (5%)

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 largest amount of data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card could possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate also depends on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
