Radeon HD 6770 vs Radeon HD 7750

Intro

The Radeon HD 6770 comes with a GPU core clock speed of 900 MHz, and the 512 MB of GDDR5 memory is set to run at 1050 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is made up of 800 SPUs, 40 Texture Address Units, and 16 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon HD 7750, which features a GPU core clock speed of 800 MHz, and 1024 MB of GDDR5 memory running at 1125 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also features 512 Stream Processors, 32 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Radeon HD 7750 72000 MB/sec
Radeon HD 6770 67200 MB/sec
Difference: 4800 (7%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon HD 6770 will be much (approximately 41%) better at AF than the Radeon HD 7750. (explain)

Radeon HD 6770 36000 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 7750 25600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 10400 (41%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high resolution is important to you, then the Radeon HD 6770 is superior to the Radeon HD 7750, but only just. (explain)

Radeon HD 6770 14400 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 7750 12800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 1600 (13%)

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 (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of 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 quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
