Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface within a second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the 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 most pixels the video card can possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory 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
