A Question

Compare any two graphics cards:
VS

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

Intro

The Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 2GB has clock speeds of 650 MHz on the GPU, and 1000 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 480 SPUs as well as 24 Texture Address Units and 8 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon HD 7750, which comes with a clock frequency of 800 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1125 MHz. It also makes use of a 128-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It is comprised of 512 SPUs, 32 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Texel Rate

The Radeon HD 7750 is a lot (about 64%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 2GB. (explain)

Radeon HD 7750 25600 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 2GB 15600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 10000 (64%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon HD 7750 should be quite a bit (about 146%) more effective at FSAA than the Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 2GB, and should be capable of handling higher resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

Radeon HD 7750 12800 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 2GB 5200 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 7600 (146%)

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.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, the faster 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core 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 that the graphics card could possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
