Radeon R7 240 vs Radeon R7 M360

Intro

The Radeon R7 240 features core speeds of 730 MHz on the GPU, and 900 MHz on the 2048 MB of DDR3 memory. It features 320 SPUs along with 20 TAUs and 8 ROPs.

Compare that to the Radeon R7 M360, which uses a 28 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 1125 MHz. The DDR3 memory works at a speed of 1000 MHz on this particular model. It features 384 SPUs along with 24 Texture Address Units and 8 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically, the Radeon R7 240 should perform much faster than the Radeon R7 M360 overall. (explain)

Radeon R7 240 28800 MB/sec
Radeon R7 M360 16000 MB/sec
Difference: 12800 (80%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R7 M360 should be much (more or less 85%) more effective at texture filtering than the Radeon R7 240. (explain)

Radeon R7 M360 27000 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R7 240 14600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 12400 (85%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high screen resolution is important to you, then the Radeon R7 M360 is a better choice, and very much so. (explain)

Radeon R7 M360 9000 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R7 240 5840 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 3160 (54%)

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 maximum amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card can possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
