Radeon R7 360 vs Radeon RX 560

Intro

The Radeon R7 360 comes with a GPU core clock 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 made up of 768 Stream Processors, 48 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 560, which has GPU core speed of 1175 MHz, and 4096 MB of GDDR5 memory set to run at 7000 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also features 1024 Stream Processors, 64 Texture Address Units, and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon RX 560 80 Watts
Radeon R7 360 100 Watts
Difference: 20 Watts (25%)

Memory Bandwidth

Performance-wise, the Radeon RX 560 should in theory be a bit superior to the Radeon R7 360 overall. (explain)

Radeon RX 560 114688 MB/sec
Radeon R7 360 104000 MB/sec
Difference: 10688 (10%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 560 will be quite a bit (approximately 49%) better at anisotropic filtering than the Radeon R7 360. (explain)

Radeon RX 560 75200 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R7 360 50400 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 24800 (49%)

Pixel Rate

If running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon RX 560 is the winner, not by a very large margin though. (explain)

Radeon RX 560 18800 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R7 360 16800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 2000 (12%)

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 megabytes per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the bandwidth is, 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 texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total amount 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 texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
