GeForce GT 640 DDR3 vs Radeon HD 6670 (OEM) 1GB

Intro

The GeForce GT 640 DDR3 features a GPU core speed of 900 MHz, and the 2048 MB of DDR3 RAM runs at 1782 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is made up of 384 Stream Processors, 32 Texture Address Units, and 16 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon HD 6670 (OEM) 1GB, which comes with clock speeds of 800 MHz on the GPU, and 1000 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 480 SPUs along with 24 Texture Address Units and 8 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.

Is the memory for GT 640 as 1782MHz correct? I think the base memory speed is 891Mhz and the effective memory speed is 1782.

majid says:

well despite these results hd6670 performs well over all in games etc
