Compare any two graphics cards:
GeForce GT 440 1.5GB vs Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 1GB
IntroThe GeForce GT 440 1.5GB has core speeds of 594 MHz on the GPU, and 900 MHz on the 1536 MB of GDDR3 RAM. It features 144 SPUs along with 24 Texture Address Units and 24 ROPs.
Compare those specifications to the Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 1GB, which makes use of a 40 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 650 MHz. The GDDR3 memory works at a speed of 900 MHz on this particular model. It features 480 SPUs along with 24 Texture Address Units and 8 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks
Power Consumption (Max TDP)
As far as performance goes, the GeForce GT 440 1.5GB should theoretically be a lot superior to the Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 1GB overall. (explain)
Texel RateThe Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 1GB is a little bit (about 9%) faster with regards to AF than the GeForce GT 440 1.5GB. (explain)
Pixel RateThe GeForce GT 440 1.5GB should be much (approximately 174%) better at FSAA than the Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 1GB, and also able to handle higher resolutions without slowing down too much. (explain)
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.
Please note that the price comparisons are based on search keywords - sometimes it might show cards with very similar names that are not exactly the same as the one chosen in the comparison. We do try to filter out the wrong results as best we can, though.
Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the max amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.
Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in a second.
Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the video card could possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate also depends on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
