Radeon R7 370 4G vs Radeon R9 M295X

Intro

The Radeon R7 370 4G has core clock speeds of 975 MHz on the GPU, and 1400 MHz on the 4096 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 1024 SPUs as well as 64 Texture Address Units and 32 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon R9 M295X, which comes with GPU clock speed of 750 MHz, and 4096 MB of GDDR5 RAM running at 1375 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is made up of 2048 Stream Processors, 128 Texture Address Units, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon R7 370 4G 110 Watts
Radeon R9 M295X 125 Watts
Difference: 15 Watts (14%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon R7 370 4G will be 2% faster than the Radeon R9 M295X in general, due to its greater data rate. (explain)

Radeon R7 370 4G 179200 MB/sec
Radeon R9 M295X 176000 MB/sec
Difference: 3200 (2%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R9 M295X should be much (about 54%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the Radeon R7 370 4G. (explain)

Radeon R9 M295X 96000 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R7 370 4G 62400 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 33600 (54%)

Pixel Rate

If running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon R7 370 4G is a better choice, and very much so. (explain)

Radeon R7 370 4G 31200 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R9 M295X 24000 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 7200 (30%)

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 largest amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface within a second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card could possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
