Compare any two graphics cards:
Radeon HD 6770 1GB vs Radeon HD 7750
IntroThe Radeon HD 6770 1GB features core clock speeds of 900 MHz on the GPU, and 1050 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 800 SPUs as well as 40 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.
Compare all of that to the Radeon HD 7750, which comes with 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 SPUs, 32 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks
Power Consumption (Max TDP)
The Radeon HD 7750, in theory, should be a little bit faster than the Radeon HD 6770 1GB in general. (explain)
Texel RateThe Radeon HD 6770 1GB should be quite a bit (more or less 41%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the Radeon HD 7750. (explain)
Pixel RateIf running with a high screen resolution is important to you, then the Radeon HD 6770 1GB is a better choice, but not by far. (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.
Please note that the price comparisons are based on search keywords - sometimes it might show cards with very similar names that are not exactly the same as the one chosen in the comparison. We do try to filter out the wrong results as best we can, though.
Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the max amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR RAM, it 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 anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.
Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, 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 chip can possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
