GeForce GTX 275 vs Radeon HD 7750

Intro

The GeForce GTX 275 comes with a core clock speed of 633 MHz and a GDDR3 memory frequency of 1134 MHz. It also makes use of a 448-bit memory bus, and uses a 55 nm design. It is made up of 240 SPUs, 80 TAUs, and 28 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon HD 7750, which has a clock frequency of 800 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1125 MHz. It also uses a 128-bit bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It is made up of 512 SPUs, 32 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

The GeForce GTX 275 will be a lot (more or less 98%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the Radeon HD 7750. (explain)

GeForce GTX 275 50640 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 7750 25600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 25040 (98%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high screen resolution is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 275 is a better choice, by far. (explain)

GeForce GTX 275 17724 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 7750 12800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 4924 (38%)

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: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface within a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics chip can possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
