Compare any two graphics cards:
Radeon HD 5750 1GB vs Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 2GB
IntroThe Radeon HD 5750 1GB has a core clock frequency of 700 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1150 MHz. It also features a 128-bit bus, and makes use of a 40 nm design. It features 720(144x5) SPUs, 36 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.
Compare all of that to the Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 2GB, which comes with clock speeds of 650 MHz on the GPU, and 1000 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 480 SPUs as well as 24 TAUs and 8 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks
Power Consumption (Max TDP)
Performance-wise, the Radeon HD 5750 1GB should in theory be a bit superior to the Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 2GB overall. (explain)
Texel RateThe Radeon HD 5750 1GB should be a lot (about 62%) faster with regards to AF than the Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 2GB. (explain)
Pixel RateIf running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon HD 5750 1GB is the winner, and very much so. (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: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface within a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high 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 higher the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at 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 that the graphics chip can possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
