In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the R9 M365X and the GeForce GTX 480M are equal.

The R9 M365X has a 200 MHz higher core clock speed but 4 fewer Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GTX 480M. The lower TMU count doesn't matter, though, as altogether the R9 M365X manages to provide 6.3 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 R9 M365X has a 200 MHz higher core clock speed than the GeForce GTX 480M, but the GeForce GTX 480M has 16 more Render Output Units than the R9 M365X. As a result, the GeForce GTX 480M exhibits a 3.6 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the R9 M365X. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The R9 M365X was released over three years more recently than the GeForce GTX 480M, and so the R9 M365X is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce GTX 480M when running the latest games.

The R9 M365X has 2048 MB more video memory than the GeForce GTX 480M, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The GeForce GTX 480M has 12.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the R9 M365X, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GTX 480M is slightly better than the R9 M365X.

The Radeon R9 M365X 4GB has 640 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 480M has 352. However, the actual shader performance of the R9 M365X is 340 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 480M is 299. The R9 M365X having 41 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GeForce GTX 480M performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The R9 M365X transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce GTX 480M. This means that the R9 M365X is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce GTX 480M. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the R9 M365X should consume less power than the GeForce GTX 480M.

The Radeon R9 M365X 4GB requires 50 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 480M requires 100 Watts. The GeForce GTX 480M requires 50 Watts more than the R9 M365X to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce GTX 480M may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the R9 M365X.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Radeon R9 M365X 4GB is a Fast-Middle-Class Mobile Graphics Card based on the First Generation of the Graphics Core Next Architecture (GCN).

Radeon R9 M365X 4GB Features a GPU Codenamed Venus PRO which is a First Gen GCN GPU and is identical to the Cape GPU used on the Desktop Radeon R7 250X.
Venus PRO has 10 Compute Units Unlocked and thus offers 640 Shader Processing Units, 40 TMUs and 16 ROPs.

The Central Unit is Clocked at 625MHz.

Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with fast GDDR5 and Accesses the Frame Buffer through a 128-bit Memory Interface. The Memory Clock Operates at 1000MHz.

Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 4GB. Under most circumstances, this only proves useful in certain 3D Games whose Settings Require Large Amounts of Memory.
However, because the GPU itself is too weak to work under other circumstances in which 4GB of Memory are needed - such as 4K Gaming, a Large Frame Buffer is mostly a Gimmick.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 50W, it is suited for large laptops.

Radeon R9 M365X 4GB is a Direct Rebrand of Radeon R9 M265X.
Performance is Comparable to the Desktop Radeon R7 250.

System Suggestions
Radeon R9 M365X 4GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1600x900. We recommend a Strong Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
GeForce GTX 480M is a High-End Mobile Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Fermi Architecture.

The Fermi Architecture was first manufactured with a 40nm technology and uses a technique known as Hot Clocking: The Shaders are clocked twice as fast as the Central Unit. While this leads to a reasonable performance boost, it causes enormous amounts of energy dissipation, leading, ultimately, to a significantly higher operating temperature.
Fermi is also the first GPU architecture with fully cached memory access which increases memory performance.

It equips a GPU Codenamed Fermi GF100-N11E-GTX-A3 which has 11 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 352 Shader Processing Units, 44 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 425MHz.

The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 600MHz.

DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for SLI, Optimus, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 100W, it is only suited for very large laptops.

Gaming benchmarks put its performance identical to a desktop GeForce GTS 450.

System Suggestions
We recommend a fast processor (Intel Core i7 Mobile) and 8GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GTX 480M.
