Radeon HD 4850 1GB vs Radeon HD 7750

Intro

The Radeon HD 4850 1GB features core speeds of 625 MHz on the GPU, and 993 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR4 memory. It features 800(160x5) SPUs as well as 40 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon HD 7750, which features a GPU core clock speed of 800 MHz, and 1024 MB of GDDR5 RAM running at 1125 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is comprised of 512 Stream Processors, 32 Texture Address Units, and 16 ROPs.

Radeon HD 4850 1GB 63552 MB/sec
Difference: 8448 (13%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon HD 7750 is a small bit (about 2%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the Radeon HD 4850 1GB. (explain)

Radeon HD 7750 25600 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 4850 1GB 25000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 600 (2%)

Pixel Rate

If using high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon HD 7750 is the winner, and very much so. (explain)

Radeon HD 7750 12800 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 4850 1GB 10000 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 2800 (28%)

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 largest amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the video 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 that the graphics card can possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines 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 output rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
