Radeon R7 360 vs Radeon RX 460

Intro

The Radeon R7 360 features a GPU clock speed of 1050 MHz, and the 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM runs at 1625 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is comprised of 768 SPUs, 48 Texture Address Units, and 16 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 460, which makes use of a 14 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 1090 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a frequency of 1750 MHz on this particular model. It features 896 SPUs along with 56 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

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

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 460 is quite a bit (about 21%) more effective at AF than the Radeon R7 360. (explain)

Radeon RX 460 61040 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R7 360 50400 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 10640 (21%)

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon RX 460 is the winner, though only just barely. (explain)

Radeon RX 460 17440 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R7 360 16800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 640 (4%)

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 max amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, 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 the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the number 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 filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate also depends on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
