GeForce GT 640 DDR3 vs Radeon HD 5570

Intro

The GeForce GT 640 DDR3 comes with a clock speed of 900 MHz and a DDR3 memory frequency of 1782 MHz. It also uses a 128-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It features 384 SPUs, 32 Texture Address Units, and 16 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon HD 5570, which features a GPU core clock speed of 650 MHz, and 512 MB of DDR3 RAM set to run at 900 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is made up of 400(80x5) Stream Processors, 20 TAUs, and 8 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface within a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, 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 figure is worked out by multiplying the total texture units by the core clock 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 applied in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the video card could possibly write to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core speed of the card. 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 lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
