Radeon R7 M360 is a graphics card based on the Tonga chip released in the second half of 2015. It supports technologies such as DirectX 12, Mantle, OpenGL 4.3, OpenCL 1.2, Vulkan and FreeSync. The base operating frequency of R7 M360 is 1015 MHz, and there are two variants with either DDR3 or GDDR5 memory. The GPU performance has been increased over the previous generation equivalent model R7 M260. If we have to compare it to a competitive NVIDIA model, GeForce GT 920M has similar specs and both chips share similar performance.
This chip boasts not only the above-mentioned technologies but it is also energy efficient. The two processes Enduro and ZeroCore are the reason for this. On the one hand, the former automatically switches to the integrated GPU whenever R7 M360 is not engaged. On the other hand, the latter reduces the chip’s energy consumption when the display is off. Thanks to them the machine needs less power supply, and thus they preserve both battery life and the device itself.
