Radeon HD 4550 512MB vs Radeon HD 6450 (OEM)

Intro

The Radeon HD 4550 512MB has a GPU clock speed of 600 MHz, and the 512 MB of GDDR3 memory is set to run at 800 MHz through a 64-bit bus. It also features 80(16x5) SPUs, 8 TAUs, and 4 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon HD 6450 (OEM), which has GPU clock speed of 625 MHz, and 512 MB of GDDR3 memory running at 800 MHz through a 64-bit bus. It also is made up of 160 SPUs, 8 Texture Address Units, and 4 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon HD 4550 512MB 25 Watts
Radeon HD 6450 (OEM) 31 Watts
Difference: 6 Watts (24%)

Memory Bandwidth

Both cards have the exact same memory bandwidth, so theoretically they should have identical performance. (explain)

Texel Rate

The Radeon HD 6450 (OEM) is a small bit (about 4%) faster with regards to AF than the Radeon HD 4550 512MB. (explain)

Radeon HD 6450 (OEM) 5000 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 4550 512MB 4800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 200 (4%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon HD 6450 (OEM) is superior to the Radeon HD 4550 512MB, though not by far. (explain)

Radeon HD 6450 (OEM) 2500 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 4550 512MB 2400 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 100 (4%)

Please note that the above 'benchmarks' are all just theoretical - the results were calculated based on the card's specifications, and real-world performance may (and probably will) vary at least a bit.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the video card can possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. 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 ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
