GeForce GTX 560 Ti vs Radeon HD 7850

Intro

The GeForce GTX 560 Ti features a GPU core speed of 822 MHz, and the 1024 MB of GDDR5 RAM is set to run at 1002 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is comprised of 384 Stream Processors, 64 Texture Address Units, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Compare that to the Radeon HD 7850, which has a core clock frequency of 860 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1200 MHz. It also makes use of a 256-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It is comprised of 1024 SPUs, 64 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon HD 7850 130 Watts
GeForce GTX 560 Ti 170 Watts
Difference: 40 Watts (31%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon HD 7850 will be 20% quicker than the GeForce GTX 560 Ti overall, because of its higher bandwidth. (explain)

Radeon HD 7850 153600 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 560 Ti 128256 MB/sec
Difference: 25344 (20%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon HD 7850 is just a bit (approximately 5%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTX 560 Ti. (explain)

Radeon HD 7850 55040 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 560 Ti 52608 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 2432 (5%)

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon HD 7850 is the winner, though not by far. (explain)

Radeon HD 7850 27520 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 560 Ti 26304 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 1216 (5%)

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 data (measured in MB per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface within a second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR memory, it must 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, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics card could possibly write to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the number of 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 is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
