GeForce GTS 250 1GB vs Radeon HD 5750 1GB

Intro

The GeForce GTS 250 1GB comes with a GPU clock speed of 738 MHz, and the 1024 MB of GDDR3 RAM runs at 1100 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also features 128 SPUs, 64 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Compare that to the Radeon HD 5750 1GB, which makes use of a 40 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 700 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a speed of 1150 MHz on this model. It features 720(144x5) SPUs as well as 36 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in one second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. 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 processed per second. This 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 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 amount of pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
