Compare any two graphics cards:
Radeon HD 6770 vs Radeon HD 7750
IntroThe Radeon HD 6770 features a clock frequency of 900 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1050 MHz. It also uses a 128-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 40 nm design. It features 800 SPUs, 40 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.
Compare all that to the Radeon HD 7750, which has a clock speed of 800 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1125 MHz. It also makes use of a 128-bit memory bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It is made up of 512 SPUs, 32 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks
Power Consumption (Max TDP)
In theory, the Radeon HD 7750 should be 7% quicker than the Radeon HD 6770 overall, because of its greater data rate. (explain)
Texel RateThe Radeon HD 6770 will be a lot (about 41%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the Radeon HD 7750. (explain)
Pixel RateThe Radeon HD 6770 will be a little bit (about 13%) more effective at FSAA than the Radeon HD 7750, and will be 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: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface within a second. It is calculated by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better 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 can be applied per second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in one second.
Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
