GeForce GT 130 vs Radeon HD 6790

Intro

The GeForce GT 130 uses a 55 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 500 MHz. The DDR2 memory runs at a speed of 250 MHz on this particular card. It features 48 SPUs as well as 24 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all of that to the Radeon HD 6790, which uses a 40 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 840 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM works at a speed of 1050 MHz on this particular model. It features 800 SPUs as well as 40 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the max amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in a second. It's calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
