Compare any two graphics cards:
Radeon HD 6750 vs Radeon HD 7750
IntroThe Radeon HD 6750 has a GPU core clock speed of 725 MHz, and the 512 MB of GDDR5 RAM runs at 1000 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also features 720 Stream Processors, 36 Texture Address Units, and 16 ROPs.
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 RAM. It features 512 SPUs along with 32 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.
Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks
Power Consumption (Max TDP)
In theory, the Radeon HD 7750 should be a small bit faster than the Radeon HD 6750 in general. (explain)
Texel RateThe Radeon HD 6750 is just a bit (about 2%) better at anisotropic filtering than the Radeon HD 7750. (explain)
Pixel RateThe Radeon HD 7750 is just a bit (more or less 10%) better at anti-aliasing than the Radeon HD 6750, and also should be able to handle higher screen resolutions while still performing well. (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 maximum amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface within a second. It's worked out by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better 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 are applied in one second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels per second.
Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the video card could possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
