GeForce GTX 660 Ti vs Radeon HD 7850

Intro

The GeForce GTX 660 Ti features a GPU core speed of 915 MHz, and the 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM runs at 1500 MHz through a 192-bit bus. It also is comprised of 1344 SPUs, 112 Texture Address Units, and 24 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon HD 7850, which comes with a clock speed of 860 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1200 MHz. It also uses a 256-bit bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It features 1024 SPUs, 64 TAUs, and 32 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon HD 7850 130 Watts
GeForce GTX 660 Ti 150 Watts
Difference: 20 Watts (15%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon HD 7850 should be 7% faster than the GeForce GTX 660 Ti in general, due to its higher bandwidth. (explain)

Radeon HD 7850 153600 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 660 Ti 144000 MB/sec
Difference: 9600 (7%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 660 Ti is quite a bit (more or less 86%) faster with regards to AF than the Radeon HD 7850. (explain)

GeForce GTX 660 Ti 102480 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 7850 55040 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 47440 (86%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon HD 7850 is superior to the GeForce GTX 660 Ti, by a large margin. (explain)

Radeon HD 7850 27520 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 660 Ti 21960 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 5560 (25%)

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 maximum amount of data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface within a second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the video 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 amount of pixels the video card can 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 Render Output Units by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.

[...] Hey just wondering about the 660 Ti and whether or not it has been released it appears that it has but not exactly sure and in terms of price etc is it worth it instead of the 7850. I've had to post pone my build until after Christmas Uni has made me a bit poorer than I anticipated so by then hopefully the 7850 may have dropped in price as a counter towards the 660 Ti. I've also been using this website as a comparison for graphics cards would you say it's fairly accurate: GeForce GTX 660 Ti vs Radeon HD 7850 – Performance Comparison Benchmarks @ Hardware Compare [...]

teu cu fdp a hd 7850 só perdeu taxel rate e vai comparar os preços das 2 seu otário fanboióla da nvidia

ronron says:

the 7850 is better for me.. ....thus the memory bandwidth is 256bit..ive seen the 660ti and its not worth the money the 7850 can run as fast as the 660ti but and also worth every penny ...

a7850 e supeiror seu urro alha de novo o principal o o ultimo i ela ta na frente
