GeForce GTX 560 Ti vs Radeon HD 7850

Intro

The GeForce GTX 560 Ti has a GPU core clock speed of 822 MHz, and the 1024 MB of GDDR5 memory is set to run at 1002 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is comprised of 384 Stream Processors, 64 TAUs, and 32 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon HD 7850, which comes with GPU core speed of 860 MHz, and 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM set to run at 1200 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is comprised of 1024 Stream Processors, 64 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

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

Memory Bandwidth

As far as performance goes, the Radeon HD 7850 should in theory be a little bit superior to the GeForce GTX 560 Ti in general. (explain)

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

Texel Rate

The Radeon HD 7850 should be just a bit (approximately 5%) more effective at 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

The Radeon HD 7850 will be a bit (more or less 5%) faster with regards to AA than the GeForce GTX 560 Ti, and also should be capable of handling higher resolutions better. (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 largest amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high 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 amount of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the card will be at 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 that the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the core speed of the card. 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 many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
