VS

Radeon HD 6750 vs Radeon HD 7770

Intro

The Radeon HD 6750 has a GPU core clock speed of 725 MHz, and the 512 MB of GDDR5 memory runs at 1000 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is made up of 720 SPUs, 36 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all of that to the Radeon HD 7770, which uses a 28 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 1000 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM is set to run at a frequency of 1125 MHz on this specific model. It features 640 SPUs as well as 40 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

As far as performance goes, the Radeon HD 7770 should in theory be a little bit superior to the Radeon HD 6750 overall. (explain)

Radeon HD 7770 72000 MB/sec
Radeon HD 6750 64000 MB/sec
Difference: 8000 (13%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon HD 7770 should be much (approximately 53%) better at texture filtering than the Radeon HD 6750. (explain)

Radeon HD 7770 40000 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 6750 26100 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 13900 (53%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high screen resolution is important to you, then the Radeon HD 7770 is a better choice, by far. (explain)

Radeon HD 7770 16000 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 6750 11600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 4400 (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: Bandwidth is the largest amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the 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 texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels 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 ROPs by the the core 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 fill rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
