Radeon HD 5450 vs Radeon R7 M360

Intro

The Radeon HD 5450 features a clock speed of 650 MHz and a DDR3 memory frequency of 800 MHz. It also makes use of a 64-bit bus, and uses a 40 nm design. It features 80(16x5) SPUs, 8 TAUs, and 4 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon R7 M360, which has clock speeds of 1125 MHz on the GPU, and 1000 MHz on the 2048 MB of DDR3 RAM. It features 384 SPUs as well as 24 Texture Address Units and 8 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically, the Radeon R7 M360 should be much faster than the Radeon HD 5450 overall. (explain)

Radeon R7 M360 16000 MB/sec
Radeon HD 5450 12800 MB/sec
Difference: 3200 (25%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon R7 M360 is much (approximately 419%) better at anisotropic filtering than the Radeon HD 5450. (explain)

Radeon R7 M360 27000 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 5450 5200 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 21800 (419%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon R7 M360 should be quite a bit (approximately 246%) faster with regards to AA than the Radeon HD 5450, and should be able to handle higher screen resolutions while still performing well. (explain)

Radeon R7 M360 9000 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 5450 2600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 6400 (246%)

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 largest amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface within a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This figure is worked out 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 card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the graphics card could possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core clock speed. 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 fill rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
