Compare any two graphics cards:
Radeon HD 6670 (OEM) vs Radeon HD 6770 1GB
IntroThe Radeon HD 6670 (OEM) has a clock frequency of 800 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1000 MHz. It also features a 128-bit memory bus, and uses a 40 nm design. It is made up of 480 SPUs, 24 TAUs, and 8 ROPs.
Compare those specifications to the Radeon HD 6770 1GB, which comes with GPU clock speed of 900 MHz, and 1024 MB of GDDR5 RAM running at 1050 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also features 800 Stream Processors, 40 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks
Power Consumption (Max TDP)
Theoretically speaking, the Radeon HD 6770 1GB will be 5% quicker than the Radeon HD 6670 (OEM) overall, due to its higher bandwidth. (explain)
Texel RateThe Radeon HD 6770 1GB should be a lot (about 88%) better at anisotropic filtering than the Radeon HD 6670 (OEM). (explain)
Pixel RateThe Radeon HD 6770 1GB should be quite a bit (approximately 125%) faster with regards to full screen anti-aliasing than the Radeon HD 6670 (OEM), and capable of handling higher screen resolutions more effectively. (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: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better 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 applied in one second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in one second.
Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
