Compare any two graphics cards:
Radeon HD 5750 1GB vs Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 2GB
IntroThe Radeon HD 5750 1GB uses a 40 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 700 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM works at a frequency of 1150 MHz on this card. It features 720(144x5) SPUs along with 36 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.
Compare those specifications 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 memory. It features 480 SPUs as well as 24 Texture Address Units and 8 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks
Power Consumption (Max TDP)
Theoretically, the Radeon HD 5750 1GB should perform a little bit faster than the Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 2GB overall. (explain)
Texel RateThe Radeon HD 5750 1GB should be quite a bit (about 62%) faster with regards to AF than the Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 2GB. (explain)
Pixel RateIf running with a high screen resolution is important to you, then the Radeon HD 5750 1GB is superior to the Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 2GB, 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 maximum amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.
Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed per second.
Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the video card could possibly write to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
