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 speed at 700 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM runs at a speed of 1150 MHz on this specific model. It features 720(144x5) SPUs as well as 36 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.
Compare those specifications to the Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 2GB, which comes with a GPU core clock speed of 650 MHz, and 1024 MB of GDDR5 memory set to run at 1000 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is comprised of 480 Stream Processors, 24 TAUs, and 8 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks
Power Consumption (Max TDP)
The Radeon HD 5750 1GB, in theory, should be a little bit faster than the Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 2GB in general. (explain)
Texel RateThe Radeon HD 5750 1GB will be quite a bit (about 62%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 2GB. (explain)
Pixel RateIf using a high resolution 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: Bandwidth is the max amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface within a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the 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 applied in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the 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 amount of pixels the graphics card could possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
