In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R7 M360 2GB are noticeably better than the AMD Radeon R7 M260.

The R7 M360 has a 60 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the Radeon R7 M260. This results in the R7 M360 providing 1.4 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The R7 M360 has a 60 MHz higher core clock speed than the Radeon R7 M260 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the R7 M360 providing 0.5 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The R7 M360 was released less than a year after the Radeon R7 M260, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The Radeon R7 M360 2GB and the Radeon R7 M260 have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The R7 M360 has 1.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon R7 M260, which means that the memory performance of the R7 M360 is marginally better than the Radeon R7 M260.

Both the Radeon R7 M360 2GB and the Radeon R7 M260 have 384 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the R7 M360 is 331 and by the Radeon R7 M260 is 320. Knowing that the shader performance of the R7 M360 is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

The Radeon R7 M360 2GB requires 50 Watts to run and the Radeon R7 M260 requires 35 Watts. The R7 M360 requires 15 Watts more than the Radeon R7 M260 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the R7 M360 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Radeon R7 M260.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon R7 M360 2GB is a Middle-Class Mobile Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Graphics Core Next Architecture.

Architecture
The GCN 1.1 revision of the Graphics Core Next Architecture adds new important technologies and is largely oriented for energy efficiency. New technologies such as PowerTune and TrueAudio are the biggest additions as well as DirectX 11.2 support.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed Mars XT which offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 8 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1000MHz and goes up to 1015MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast DDR3, through a 64-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and in no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 1100MHz.

Features
DirectX 12.0 Support (11.2 Hardware Default) and support for Crossfire, Mantle, PowerTune, Eyefinity, ZeroCore, HD3D, App Acceleration and other technologies.

Performance
Because of the very small data transfer rate, Radeon R7 M360 2GB can only be as fast as NVIDIA's GeForce 920M.

System Suggestions
We recommend a Modest Dual Core Processor (Intel Core i3 Quad Core) and 4GB of RAM for a system with Radeon R7 M360 2GB.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS GRAPHICS CARD HAS 2 VARIANTS: DDR3 + 64-bit AND DDR3 + 128-bit. THIS IS THE DDR3 + 64-bit VARIANT.

Radeon R7 M260 is a middle-class mobile graphics card. It is based on 28nm Topaz XT Core of the GCN 1.1 architecture.

Radeon R7 M260 offers 384 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 8 ROPs, on a 64-bit of DDR3. While the central unit runs at 940MHz and goes up to 980MHz, in Turbo Mode, the memory clock operates at 1000MHz. It has a rated TDP board of around 35W.

This version is even worse suited for higher resolutions but it is expected to perform better than its 128-bit counterpart at lower resolutions and in certain games. Still, the 128-bit should still be overall slightly faster.
