Compare any two graphics cards:
GeForce GTX 275 vs Radeon HD 7750
IntroThe GeForce GTX 275 has clock speeds of 633 MHz on the GPU, and 1134 MHz on the 896 MB of GDDR3 RAM. It features 240 SPUs as well as 80 TAUs and 28 Rasterization Operator Units.
Compare those specs to the Radeon HD 7750, which has GPU clock speed of 800 MHz, and 1024 MB of GDDR5 memory set to run at 1125 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is comprised of 512 SPUs, 32 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks
Power Consumption (Max TDP)
The GeForce GTX 275 should theoretically perform quite a bit faster than the Radeon HD 7750 in general. (explain)
Texel RateThe GeForce GTX 275 will be much (approximately 98%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the Radeon HD 7750. (explain)
Pixel RateIf running with a high screen resolution is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 275 is superior to the Radeon HD 7750, and very much so. (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: Bandwidth is the max amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.
Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in a second.
Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the video card could possibly write to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called 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 potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
