In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 6950M are marginally better than the AMD Radeon R9 M365X 4GB.

The R9 M365X has a 45 MHz higher core clock speed than the Radeon HD 6950M, but the Radeon HD 6950M has 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the R9 M365X. As a result, the Radeon HD 6950M exhibits a 2.8 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the R9 M365X. 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 45 MHz higher core clock speed than the Radeon HD 6950M, but the Radeon HD 6950M has 16 more Render Output Units than the R9 M365X. As a result, the Radeon HD 6950M exhibits a 8.6 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 Radeon HD 6950M, 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 Radeon HD 6950M when running the latest games.

The R9 M365X has 3072 MB more video memory than the Radeon HD 6950M, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The Radeon HD 6950M has 51.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the R9 M365X, which means that the memory performance of the Radeon HD 6950M is much better than the R9 M365X.

The Radeon R9 M365X 4GB has 640 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 6950M has 960. However, the actual shader performance of the R9 M365X is 340 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 6950M is 278. The R9 M365X having 62 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Radeon HD 6950M performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The R9 M365X transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Radeon HD 6950M. This means that the R9 M365X is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Radeon HD 6950M. While they exhibit similar graphical performance, the R9 M365X should consume less power than the Radeon HD 6950M.

The Radeon R9 M365X 4GB requires 50 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 6950M requires 50 Watts. The two GPUs require the same amount of wattage to run. As such, there is no need to worry about which will more significantly affect your yearly electricity bills.

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).



Architecture
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.

GPU
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.

Performance
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.
Radeon HD 6950M is a high-end GPU based on the 40nm Terrascale 2 architecture.
It's based on the Barts Core (therefore related to Radeon HD 6850) and offers 980 Shader Processing Units, 48 TMUs and 32 ROPs on a 256-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. Its central clock runs at 580MHz and the memory clock operates at 900MHz.
Its performance is not exceptionally good due to being heavily underclocked.
Most of today's modern games are playable at the highest settings but some exceptions will require lower resolutions or modest presets to be played optimally.
