Radeon HD 7750 vs Radeon HD 7770

Intro

The Radeon HD 7750 makes use of a 28 nm design. ATi has clocked the core frequency at 800 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a frequency of 1125 MHz on this specific card. It features 512 SPUs along with 32 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon HD 7770, which comes with core clock speeds of 1000 MHz on the GPU, and 1125 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 640 SPUs along with 40 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon HD 7750 55 Watts
Radeon HD 7770 80 Watts
Difference: 25 Watts (45%)

Memory Bandwidth

Both cards have exactly the same bandwidth, so in theory they should have identical performance. (explain)

Texel Rate

The Radeon HD 7770 is a lot (more or less 56%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the Radeon HD 7750. (explain)

Radeon HD 7770 40000 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 7750 25600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 14400 (56%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon HD 7770 is quite a bit (about 25%) faster with regards to full screen anti-aliasing than the Radeon HD 7750, and also will be capable of handling higher resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

Radeon HD 7770 16000 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 7750 12800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 3200 (25%)

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 (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR type RAM, the result should 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 anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, 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 chip could possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs 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 output rate also depends on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
