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

Texel Rate

The Radeon HD 5770 is quite a bit (approximately 119%) more effective at AF than the Radeon HD 5670. (explain)

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

Pixel Rate

The Radeon HD 5770 will be much (about 119%) more effective at AA than the Radeon HD 5670, and will be able to handle higher resolutions without slowing down too much. (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 maximum amount of data (counted in MB per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher 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 texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, 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 number of pixels that the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
