Geforce GTX 670 vs Radeon HD 7850


Intro

The Geforce GTX 670 has a GPU core speed of 915 MHz, and the 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory runs at 1500 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is made up of 1344 SPUs, 112 Texture Address Units, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon HD 7850, which uses a 28 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 860 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM runs at a speed of 1200 MHz on this particular model. It features 1024 SPUs as well as 64 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Radeon HD 7850 130 Watts
Geforce GTX 670 170 Watts
Difference: 40 Watts (31%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Geforce GTX 670 is 25% faster than the Radeon HD 7850 overall, because of its greater bandwidth. (explain)

Geforce GTX 670 192000 MB/sec
Radeon HD 7850 153600 MB/sec
Difference: 38400 (25%)

Texel Rate

The Geforce GTX 670 should be quite a bit (about 86%) better at AF than the Radeon HD 7850. (explain)

Geforce GTX 670 102480 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 7850 55040 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 47440 (86%)

Pixel Rate

If using high levels of AA is important to you, then the Geforce GTX 670 is superior to the Radeon HD 7850, but it probably won't make a huge difference. (explain)

Geforce GTX 670 29280 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 7850 27520 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 1760 (6%)

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 (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total texture units by the core clock 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 processed per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.

I have recently bought GTX 670...due to HD 7850 wasn't enough powerfull to max out my brand new Crysis 3 game!
I was Between GTX 670 and HD 7970 but considering that GTX 670 is using much lower power consumption and have more overclock stabillity than HD 7970 was the reason that i bought GTX 670!!!

Both cards are great if you play sport/rpg/simulator/strategy games then go for AMD if you play games like Battlefield 3 or Crysis 3 or Batman Arkham city then nVidia all the way!
Moreover nVidia drivers are much better than ATi's is!

So I bought the HD 7850 and I overclocked it to 1050 mhz Core Clock and 1450 mhz Memory Clock WITHOUT any changes to power! This GPU is simply a beast if you OC it. Its even better than an R9 270X now. I deffinately recommend you to buy it. It is really cheap and it can run Fallout 4 on max setting easily!
