GeForce GT 240 GDDR5 1GB vs Radeon HD 6750 1GB

Intro

The GeForce GT 240 GDDR5 1GB makes use of a 40 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 550 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a speed of 850 MHz on this particular model. It features 96 SPUs as well as 32 TAUs and 8 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon HD 6750 1GB, which has a core clock frequency of 725 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1000 MHz. It also makes use of a 128-bit memory bus, and uses a 40 nm design. It features 720 SPUs, 36 Texture Address Units, and 16 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the largest amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the graphics card will be at handling 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 the video card can possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the core 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, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
