Radeon R9 285 vs Radeon R9 380X

Intro

The Radeon R9 285 comes with core speeds of 918 MHz on the GPU, and 1375 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 1792 SPUs as well as 112 Texture Address Units and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare that to the Radeon R9 380X, which features a GPU core clock speed of 970 MHz, and 4096 MB of GDDR5 RAM set to run at 1425 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is comprised of 2048 SPUs, 128 TAUs, and 32 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Both cards have the same power consumption.

Memory Bandwidth

As far as performance goes, the Radeon R9 380X should in theory be a bit better than the Radeon R9 285 in general. (explain)

Radeon R9 380X 182400 MB/sec
Radeon R9 285 176000 MB/sec
Difference: 6400 (4%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 380X is a lot (about 21%) more effective at AF than the Radeon R9 285. (explain)

Radeon R9 380X 124160 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R9 285 102816 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 21344 (21%)

Pixel Rate

If using high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon R9 380X is the winner, but not by far. (explain)

Radeon R9 380X 31040 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R9 285 29376 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 1664 (6%)

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 (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the video card will be at handling 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 can possibly write to the local memory in a 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 drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
