GeForce GT 430 1GB vs Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 1GB

Intro

The GeForce GT 430 1GB comes with core clock speeds of 700 MHz on the GPU, and 900 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR3 memory. It features 96 SPUs along with 16 TAUs and 4 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 1GB, which comes with a GPU core clock speed of 650 MHz, and 1024 MB of GDDR3 RAM running at 900 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also features 480 SPUs, 24 TAUs, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 1GB 50 Watts
GeForce GT 430 1GB 60 Watts
Difference: 10 Watts (20%)

Memory Bandwidth

Both cards have exactly the same memory bandwidth, so theoretically they should perform exactly the same. (explain)

Texel Rate

The Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 1GB should be a lot (approximately 39%) more effective at AF than the GeForce GT 430 1GB. (explain)

Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 1GB 15600 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GT 430 1GB 11200 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 4400 (39%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 1GB is the winner, by a large margin. (explain)

Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 1GB 5200 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GT 430 1GB 2800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 2400 (86%)

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 information (counted in MB per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in one second. The number is calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the graphics card could possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.

hmmm. looks like ATI is way infront of the GeForce. Even though I have always wanted GeForce cause it SEEMS better. Looks like ATI has won my money. As much as I would like to have the nVidia card I want the better card so ATI is my choice
