Compare any two graphics cards:
GeForce GT 640 DDR3 vs Radeon HD 7750
IntroThe GeForce GT 640 DDR3 makes use of a 28 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 900 MHz. The DDR3 memory is set to run at a frequency of 1782 MHz on this particular card. It features 384 SPUs along with 32 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.
Compare those specs to the Radeon HD 7750, which has GPU core speed of 800 MHz, and 1024 MB of GDDR5 RAM set to run at 1125 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is comprised of 512 Stream Processors, 32 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks
Power Consumption (Max TDP)
Performance-wise, the Radeon HD 7750 should in theory be much better than the GeForce GT 640 DDR3 in general. (explain)
Texel RateThe GeForce GT 640 DDR3 should be a small bit (approximately 13%) better at anisotropic filtering than the Radeon HD 7750. (explain)
Pixel RateThe GeForce GT 640 DDR3 should be a bit (approximately 13%) faster with regards to FSAA than the Radeon HD 7750, and also should be capable of handling higher resolutions more effectively. (explain)
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.
Price ComparisonPlease note that the price comparisons are based on search keywords, and might not be the exact same card listed on this page. We have no control over the accuracy of their search results.
Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in a second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.
Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in a second.
Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card can possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
