Radeon R7 360 vs Radeon R9 M385X

Intro

The Radeon R7 360 uses a 28 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 1050 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a frequency of 1625 MHz on this card. It features 768 SPUs as well as 48 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare that to the Radeon R9 M385X, which comes with a clock speed of 1100 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1500 MHz. It also features a 128-bit memory bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It is made up of 896 SPUs, 56 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon R7 360 will be 8% quicker than the Radeon R9 M385X in general, due to its higher bandwidth. (explain)

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

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 M385X should be quite a bit (more or less 22%) more effective at anisotropic 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 high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon R9 M385X is a better choice, but not by far. (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 information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, 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 worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core speed of the card. 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 is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
