Compare any two graphics cards:
Radeon HD 5670 vs Radeon HD 5770
IntroThe Radeon HD 5670 features core speeds of 775 MHz on the GPU, and 1000 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 400(80x5) SPUs as well as 20 Texture Address Units and 8 Rasterization Operator Units.
Compare all of that to the Radeon HD 5770, which has a clock speed of 850 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1200 MHz. It also features a 128-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 40 nm design. It is made up of 800(160x5) SPUs, 40 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Radeon HD 5770 wins
(Based entirely on the benchmarks listed above)
When combining all game benchmark scores on this page together, the Radeon HD 5770 wins overall, by 99 FPS. Please note that we do not have the results of every benchmark ever done for these cards, so the results may differ wildly in different games.
Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks
Power Consumption (Max TDP)
The Radeon HD 5770 should theoretically be a small bit faster than the Radeon HD 5670 overall. (explain)
Texel RateThe Radeon HD 5770 should be much (about 119%) faster with regards to AF than the Radeon HD 5670. (explain)
Pixel RateIf running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon HD 5770 is superior to the Radeon HD 5670, 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.
Price ComparisonPlease note that the price comparisons are based on search keywords, and might not be the exact same card listed on this page. We have no control over the accuracy of their search results.
Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the max amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.
Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This is calculated by multiplying the total 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 in one second.
Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card could possibly write to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
