In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R9 M365X 4GB are massively better than the AMD Radeon HD 7490M.

The Radeon HD 7490M has a 175 MHz higher core clock speed than the R9 M365X, but the R9 M365X has 32 more Texture Mapping Units than the Radeon HD 7490M. As a result, the R9 M365X exhibits a 18.6 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the Radeon HD 7490M. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The Radeon HD 7490M has a 175 MHz higher core clock speed than the R9 M365X, but the R9 M365X has 12 more Render Output Units than the Radeon HD 7490M. As a result, the R9 M365X exhibits a 6.8 GPixel/s better Pixel Fill Rate than the Radeon HD 7490M. 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 7490M, 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 7490M when running the latest games.

The R9 M365X has 3072 MB more video memory than the Radeon HD 7490M, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the R9 M365X also has superior memory performance overall.

The R9 M365X has 33.6 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon HD 7490M, which means that the memory performance of the R9 M365X is noticeably better than the Radeon HD 7490M.

The Radeon R9 M365X 4GB has 640 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 7490M has 160. However, the actual shader performance of the R9 M365X is 340 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 7490M is 64. The R9 M365X having 276 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the R9 M365X delivers a significantly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Radeon HD 7490M.

The R9 M365X transistor size technology is 12 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Radeon HD 7490M. This means that the R9 M365X is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Radeon HD 7490M.

The Radeon R9 M365X 4GB requires 50 Watts to run and the Radeon HD 7490M requires 9 Watts. The R9 M365X requires 41 Watts more than the Radeon HD 7490M to run. The difference is significant enough that the R9 M365X may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the Radeon HD 7490M.

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.
Overview
Radeon HD 7490M is an Entry-Level Mobile Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Terascale Architecture.

Architecture
The Second variant of the Terascale 2 Architecture is still manufactured with a 40nm technology and despite allowing more Stream Cores, their design remains more or less the same compared to the first variant.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed Seymour XTX which has 2 Compute Units activated and thus offers 160 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit runs at 800MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 64-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The memory clock operates at 950MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for HD3D, Eyefinity, App Acceleration, PowerPlay and other technologies.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 9W, it is suited for smaller laptops.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks put its performance somewhat below a GeForce GT 420M.

System Suggestions
We recommend a Modest Processor (Intel Core i3 Mobile and 4GB of RAM for a system with Radeon HD 7490M.
