Compare any two graphics cards:
Radeon HD 4650 512MB vs Radeon HD 7750
IntroThe Radeon HD 4650 512MB comes with core speeds of 600 MHz on the GPU, and 500 MHz on the 512 MB of DDR2 memory. It features 320(64x5) SPUs along with 32 Texture Address Units and 8 ROPs.
Compare all that to the Radeon HD 7750, which has a clock speed of 800 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1125 MHz. It also makes use of a 128-bit bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It is comprised of 512 SPUs, 32 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical BenchmarksBoth cards have the same power consumption.
Theoretically speaking, the Radeon HD 7750 will be 350% quicker than the Radeon HD 4650 512MB in general, because of its greater bandwidth. (explain)
Texel RateThe Radeon HD 7750 should be a lot (approximately 33%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the Radeon HD 4650 512MB. (explain)
Pixel RateIf using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon HD 7750 is a better choice, 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: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of data (counted in MB per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in a second. It's calculated by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.
Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in one second.
Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the video card could possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
