Radeon HD 6670 (OEM) vs Radeon HD 6770 1GB

Intro

The Radeon HD 6670 (OEM) uses a 40 nm design. ATi has clocked the core frequency at 800 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a frequency of 1000 MHz on this particular model. It features 480 SPUs as well as 24 TAUs and 8 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon HD 6770 1GB, which has a clock frequency of 900 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1050 MHz. It also uses a 128-bit bus, and uses a 40 nm design. It features 800 SPUs, 40 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the max amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in a second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, 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 the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
