Radeon HD 6850 vs Radeon HD 7750

Intro

The Radeon HD 6850 uses a 40 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 775 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM is set to run at a frequency of 1000 MHz on this particular model. It features 960 SPUs as well as 48 TAUs and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare that to the Radeon HD 7750, which has clock speeds of 800 MHz on the GPU, and 1125 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 512 SPUs along with 32 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon HD 7750 55 Watts
Radeon HD 6850 127 Watts
Difference: 72 Watts (131%)

Memory Bandwidth

The Radeon HD 6850, in theory, should perform much faster than the Radeon HD 7750 in general. (explain)

Radeon HD 6850 128000 MB/sec
Radeon HD 7750 72000 MB/sec
Difference: 56000 (78%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon HD 6850 will be quite a bit (approximately 45%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the Radeon HD 7750. (explain)

Radeon HD 6850 37200 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 7750 25600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 11600 (45%)

Pixel Rate

If using high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon HD 6850 is a better choice, by far. (explain)

Radeon HD 6850 24800 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 7750 12800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 12000 (94%)

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: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in one second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the clock speed of the card. 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 output rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
