Radeon R9 M385X vs Radeon RX 560

Intro

The Radeon R9 M385X makes use of a 28 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 1100 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a speed of 1500 MHz on this specific model. It features 896 SPUs along with 56 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon RX 560, which makes use of a 14 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 1175 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM is set to run at a frequency of 7000 MHz on this specific model. It features 1024 SPUs as well as 64 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon RX 560 should be a little bit faster than the Radeon R9 M385X in general. (explain)

Radeon RX 560 114688 MB/sec
Radeon R9 M385X 96000 MB/sec
Difference: 18688 (19%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 560 will be quite a bit (more or less 22%) better at AF than the Radeon R9 M385X. (explain)

Radeon RX 560 75200 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R9 M385X 61600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 13600 (22%)

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon RX 560 is a better choice, not by a very large margin though. (explain)

Radeon RX 560 18800 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R9 M385X 17600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 1200 (7%)

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 information (measured in MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface within a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to the 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 - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
