Compare any two graphics cards:
Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 2GB vs Radeon HD 7750
IntroThe Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 2GB features a core clock frequency of 650 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1000 MHz. It also features a 128-bit bus, and makes use of a 40 nm design. It is comprised of 480 SPUs, 24 Texture Address Units, and 8 ROPs.
Compare those specifications to the Radeon HD 7750, which comes with GPU core speed of 800 MHz, and 1024 MB of GDDR5 memory running at 1125 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is comprised of 512 Stream Processors, 32 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks
Power Consumption (Max TDP)
In theory, the Radeon HD 7750 should be just a bit faster than the Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 2GB overall. (explain)
Texel RateThe Radeon HD 7750 is a lot (more or less 64%) more effective at texture filtering than the Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 2GB. (explain)
Pixel RateThe Radeon HD 7750 will be much (more or less 146%) better at anti-aliasing than the Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 2GB, and will be able to handle higher resolutions without slowing down too much. (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 information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, 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 texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock 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 applied per second.
Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card can possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core 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 fill rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
