GeForce GTX 650 vs Radeon HD 7770

Intro

The GeForce GTX 650 uses a 28 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 1058 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a speed of 1250 MHz on this card. It features 384 SPUs along with 32 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all of that to the Radeon HD 7770, which has core speeds of 1000 MHz on the GPU, and 1125 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 640 SPUs as well as 40 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

(No game benchmarks for this combination yet.)

GeForce GTX 650 64 Watts
Radeon HD 7770 80 Watts
Difference: 16 Watts (25%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the GeForce GTX 650 will be 11% faster than the Radeon HD 7770 in general, because of its greater bandwidth. (explain)

GeForce GTX 650 80000 MB/sec
Radeon HD 7770 72000 MB/sec
Difference: 8000 (11%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon HD 7770 will be a little bit (approximately 18%) better at AF than the GeForce GTX 650. (explain)

Radeon HD 7770 40000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 650 33856 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 6144 (18%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 650 will be a bit (about 6%) better at full screen anti-aliasing than the Radeon HD 7770, and should be able to handle higher screen resolutions without slowing down too much. (explain)

GeForce GTX 650 16928 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 7770 16000 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 928 (6%)

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 largest amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the video card can possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends 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.

MIERDA!!! cambie mi GTX 650 por un HD 7770 y me parece que andan igualadas, en unas horas comprare una GTX 560, esa si que es de las buenas
Trifke says:
Dane is right. GTX 650 > HD 7770
Gusta_Cz says:
No. HD 7770 is better. Search google!
Trifke says:
Yeah but up there writes that the GTX 650 is better than HD 7770 and I belive in that what I saw !!!
Anonymous says:
GTX 650 is a slightly faster card than the HD 7770 but the 7770 is makes it up in graphics. I would say that the HD 7770 is slightly better than the GTX 650 because graphics and performance is more important.
Noorba says:
I think these comparsion methods are useless. The pixel and texture fill rate with memory bandwidth information will never show the real performance of the GPU architecture. If there were theoretical computing performance (GFLOPS) in the comparsion, then that also wouldn't be enough to see the truth. Only real game tests are usefull so You'd rather check test at Techpowerup for example. Radeon HD7770 is faster by 15-20% than GTX650....it's a fact!
