Compare any two graphics cards:
Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 2GB vs Radeon HD 7750
IntroThe Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 2GB uses a 40 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 650 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM is set to run at a speed of 1000 MHz on this specific model. It features 480 SPUs along with 24 Texture Address Units and 8 Rasterization Operator Units.
Compare all of that to the Radeon HD 7750, which comes with GPU core speed of 800 MHz, and 1024 MB of GDDR5 memory set to run at 1125 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is made up of 512 Stream Processors, 32 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.
Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks
Power Consumption (Max TDP)
Theoretically speaking, the Radeon HD 7750 is 13% quicker than the Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 2GB overall, because of its greater bandwidth. (explain)
Texel RateThe Radeon HD 7750 is quite a bit (more or less 64%) faster with regards to AF than the Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 2GB. (explain)
Pixel RateIf running with a high screen resolution is important to you, then the Radeon HD 7750 is superior to the Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 2GB, and very much so. (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.
Please note that the price comparisons are based on search keywords - sometimes it might show cards with very similar names that are not exactly the same as the one chosen in the comparison. We do try to filter out the wrong results as best we can, though.
Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the largest amount of information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range 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 texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels per second.
Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the graphics card could possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
