GeForce GTX 570 vs Radeon HD 7850

Intro

The GeForce GTX 570 has a clock speed of 732 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 950 MHz. It also makes use of a 320-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 40 nm design. It features 480 SPUs, 60 TAUs, and 40 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon HD 7850, which makes use of a 28 nm design. AMD has set the core speed at 860 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a speed of 1200 MHz on this model. It features 1024 SPUs along with 64 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface within a second. It's worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type memory, it should 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 anti-aliasing, HDR and high 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 amount of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.

AMD Radeon HD 7850 is better than NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570, it has significantly lower power consumption, lower price and has really little performance difference.
