GeForce GT 310 vs Radeon HD 6450 (OEM) 1GB

Intro

The GeForce GT 310 features core clock speeds of 589 MHz on the GPU, and 1000 MHz on the 512 MB of DDR2 RAM. It features 16 SPUs as well as 8 Texture Address Units and 4 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon HD 6450 (OEM) 1GB, which comes with a GPU core clock speed of 750 MHz, and 1024 MB of GDDR5 RAM running at 900 MHz through a 64-bit bus. It also features 160 Stream Processors, 8 Texture Address Units, and 4 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Both cards have the same power consumption.

Memory Bandwidth

The Radeon HD 6450 (OEM) 1GB, in theory, should be a lot faster than the GeForce GT 310 in general. (explain)

Radeon HD 6450 (OEM) 1GB 28800 MB/sec
GeForce GT 310 16000 MB/sec
Difference: 12800 (80%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon HD 6450 (OEM) 1GB should be much (more or less 27%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GT 310. (explain)

Radeon HD 6450 (OEM) 1GB 6000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GT 310 4712 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 1288 (27%)

Pixel Rate

If running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon HD 6450 (OEM) 1GB is superior to the GeForce GT 310, by far. (explain)

Radeon HD 6450 (OEM) 1GB 3000 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GT 310 2356 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 644 (27%)

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: Bandwidth is the largest amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in one second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This is calculated by multiplying the total texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
