Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core 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 in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the graphics card could possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.

AMD Radeon HD 7770 1GB GDDR5 is better than NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 1GB GDDR5, but AMD Radeon HD 7770 1GB GDDR5 is a little bit slower than NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti 1GB GDDR5.

Emma Müller says:

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's a fact!

tarun says:

gtx 650 is better than hd 7770

john says:

isf we overclocked GTX 650 it 10 faster than hd7770 :D

GAME says:

yes GTX 650 faster than HD7770

deep says:

I will agree with most of them here and my research that gtx 650 is faster and consumes less power than amd hd7770
