Radeon HD 5670 vs Radeon HD 5770

Intro

The Radeon HD 5670 comes with core speeds of 775 MHz on the GPU, and 1000 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 400(80x5) SPUs as well as 20 Texture Address Units and 8 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon HD 5770, which has a GPU core clock speed of 850 MHz, and 1024 MB of GDDR5 memory running at 1200 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is made up of 800(160x5) Stream Processors, 40 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Radeon HD 5770 108 Watts
Difference: 47 Watts (77%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon HD 5770 will be 20% quicker than the Radeon HD 5670 in general, due to its greater bandwidth. (explain)

Radeon HD 5770 76800 MB/sec
Radeon HD 5670 64000 MB/sec
Difference: 12800 (20%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon HD 5770 is a lot (more or less 119%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the Radeon HD 5670. (explain)

Radeon HD 5770 34000 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 5670 15500 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 18500 (119%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high resolution is important to you, then the Radeon HD 5770 is superior to the Radeon HD 5670, and very much so. (explain)

Radeon HD 5770 13600 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 5670 6200 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 7400 (119%)

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 data (counted in MB per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, 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 number is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the video card could possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
