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

Intro

The GeForce GT 430 (OEM) uses a 40 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 700 MHz. The GDDR3 memory is set to run at a speed of 900 MHz on this particular model. It features 96 SPUs as well as 16 TAUs and 4 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare that to the Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 1GB, which has a core clock frequency of 650 MHz and a GDDR3 memory speed of 900 MHz. It also uses a 128-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 40 nm design. It features 480 SPUs, 24 Texture Address Units, and 8 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

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

Memory Bandwidth

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

Texel Rate

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

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

Pixel Rate

If running with a high screen resolution is important to you, then the Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 1GB is superior to the GeForce GT 430 (OEM), by a large margin. (explain)

Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 1GB 5200 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GT 430 (OEM) 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 max amount of information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card can possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the core 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 is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
