Radeon HD 6750 vs Radeon HD 7750

Intro

The Radeon HD 6750 comes with a GPU core speed of 725 MHz, and the 512 MB of GDDR5 memory runs at 1000 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is comprised of 720 Stream Processors, 36 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon HD 7750, which has a clock speed of 800 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1125 MHz. It also features a 128-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It is made up of 512 SPUs, 32 Texture Address Units, and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon HD 7750 55 Watts
Radeon HD 6750 86 Watts
Difference: 31 Watts (56%)

Memory Bandwidth

The Radeon HD 7750 should theoretically perform a small bit faster than the Radeon HD 6750 overall. (explain)

Radeon HD 7750 72000 MB/sec
Radeon HD 6750 64000 MB/sec
Difference: 8000 (13%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon HD 6750 will be a little bit (approximately 2%) faster with regards to AF than the Radeon HD 7750. (explain)

Radeon HD 6750 26100 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 7750 25600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 500 (2%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon HD 7750 is the winner, though only just barely. (explain)

Radeon HD 7750 12800 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 6750 11600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 1200 (10%)

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 information (measured in MB per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in a second. It is calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total number 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 applied in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the graphics card 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 colour ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. 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 ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
