Radeon HD 5750 1GB vs Radeon R9 M270X

Intro

The Radeon HD 5750 1GB has a GPU core speed of 700 MHz, and the 1024 MB of GDDR5 RAM runs at 1150 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is made up of 720(144x5) Stream Processors, 36 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Compare that to the Radeon R9 M270X, which features GPU clock speed of 725 MHz, and 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory set to run at 1125 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also features 640 SPUs, 40 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon HD 5750 1GB is 2% quicker than the Radeon R9 M270X overall, because of its higher data rate. (explain)

Radeon HD 5750 1GB 73600 MB/sec
Radeon R9 M270X 72000 MB/sec
Difference: 1600 (2%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 M270X should be a bit (about 15%) better at AF than the Radeon HD 5750 1GB. (explain)

Radeon R9 M270X 29000 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 5750 1GB 25200 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 3800 (15%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high screen resolution is important to you, then the Radeon R9 M270X is a better choice, but it probably won't make a huge difference. (explain)

Radeon R9 M270X 11600 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 5750 1GB 11200 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 400 (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: Bandwidth is the max amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface within a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once 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, HDR and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also 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 potential to get to the max fill rate.
