Radeon R7 360 vs Radeon RX 560

Intro

The Radeon R7 360 comes with a core clock speed of 1050 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1625 MHz. It also makes use of a 128-bit bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It is comprised of 768 SPUs, 48 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon RX 560, which comes with GPU core speed of 1175 MHz, and 4096 MB of GDDR5 RAM running at 1750 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also features 1024 SPUs, 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

Theoretically, the Radeon RX 560 should be a bit faster than 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 is quite a bit (about 49%) better at texture 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 using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon RX 560 is the winner, though not by far. (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: Bandwidth is the largest amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, 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 per second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the video card could possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount 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 drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
