Compare any two graphics cards:
GeForce GTX 550 Ti vs Radeon HD 7750
IntroThe GeForce GTX 550 Ti comes with clock speeds of 900 MHz on the GPU, and 1026 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 192 SPUs as well as 32 Texture Address Units and 24 ROPs.
Compare those specifications to the Radeon HD 7750, which uses a 28 nm design. ATi has set the core frequency at 800 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM works at a speed of 1125 MHz on this specific card. It features 512 SPUs as well as 32 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks
Power Consumption (Max TDP)
Theoretically, the GeForce GTX 550 Ti should be a lot faster than the Radeon HD 7750 in general. (explain)
Texel RateThe GeForce GTX 550 Ti will be a little bit (more or less 13%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the Radeon HD 7750. (explain)
Pixel RateThe GeForce GTX 550 Ti will be a lot (about 69%) better at AA than the Radeon HD 7750, and 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: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in a second. It is worked out by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type memory, it must 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, HDR and higher screen resolutions.
Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in one second.
Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card could possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
