GeForce GT 640 DDR3 vs Radeon HD 7750

Intro

The GeForce GT 640 DDR3 makes use of a 28 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 900 MHz. The DDR3 RAM works at a frequency of 1782 MHz on this specific model. It features 384 SPUs as well as 32 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon HD 7750, which has a core clock speed of 800 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1125 MHz. It also makes use of a 128-bit bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It is made up of 512 SPUs, 32 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon HD 7750 55 Watts
GeForce GT 640 DDR3 65 Watts
Difference: 10 Watts (18%)

Memory Bandwidth

The Radeon HD 7750 should theoretically perform a lot faster than the GeForce GT 640 DDR3 overall. (explain)

Radeon HD 7750 72000 MB/sec
GeForce GT 640 DDR3 57024 MB/sec
Difference: 14976 (26%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GT 640 DDR3 is a small bit (approximately 13%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the Radeon HD 7750. (explain)

GeForce GT 640 DDR3 28800 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 7750 25600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 3200 (13%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce GT 640 DDR3 is the winner, not by a very large margin though. (explain)

GeForce GT 640 DDR3 14400 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 7750 12800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 1600 (13%)

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: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface within a second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the video 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 the video card can possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.

es una difícil desicion!

im an nvidia fanboy but i got to admit gt 640 is shit comppared to hd 7750
onerky R says:
the reality is that ati in HD Gaming is better than GForce but too expensive.
Mmmn says:
Pues yo las veo muy similares, una tendra GDDR5 pero gasta mas energia, pero la otra procesa un poco mas rapido, yo las veo casi parejas, si acaso un 10% mas rapida la 7750, pero obvio un 10% mas cara... por lo menos aqui en mexico.
SomeOne says:
But why is the nvidia more expensive if the 7750 better :O

Confused!

Im not sure if we're looking on the same page (roe150 said 640 is shit compared to 7750) but GeForce is faster in every respect except for consuming more power.. I found it in low profile format £20 cheaper on ebay than 7750.
Jezshit says:
its because GT640 is highly capable in physx game, because it has 384 cuda processor and 1782 memory clock even its ddr3
RaidnU says:
Bottom line, HD 7750 is better at processing games, period.

I just grabbed HD 7750 to replace my HD 4650 without even thinking to change psu, even i only have 330watt psu!!

... and it run great!!! Wooohoo. NVDIA sucks i will never tricked by your stupid phsyx gimmick!
oldarmyguy says:
I have both the HD 7750 and a GT 640 but my my GT 640 card has GDDR 5 not GDDR 3. The bandwidth on 640 GDDR 5 card is approximately 91238 MB/sec. There is no comparison, it runs Skyrim, Diablo 3 and Starcraft 2 at higher resolutions and framerates then the HD 7750.
oldarmyguy says:
This is a corrections to my last post about the GT 640 GDDR5 card I have:
Bandwidth - 80000 MB/s.
GPU Clock - 954 MHz
Memory Speed - 1250 MHz (2500)
GFlops - 910.4
Pixel Fill - 15.3 GPixel/s
Texture Fill - 30.5 GTexel/s
I apologize about my previous post, I misread the GPU-Z printout. (Senior moment)
milisav says:
Memory Speed 1782MHz.Ha ha, higher from every card that's ddr3 already
chhuanga says:
i have used gt 640 before and i bought a 7750 dont know why its better here but for me 7750 is like much much more faster in witcher 2 i can only play in low with gt640 but with hd 7750 i can play with high
