VS

Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 2GB vs Radeon HD 7750

Intro

The Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 2GB comes with a core clock frequency of 650 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1000 MHz. It also makes use of a 128-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 40 nm design. It features 480 SPUs, 24 Texture Address Units, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all of that to the Radeon HD 7750, which has core speeds of 800 MHz on the GPU, and 1125 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 512 SPUs as well as 32 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the max amount of information (measured 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 memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once 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 AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that are applied 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 per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of ROPs 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 output rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
