Compare any two graphics cards:
GeForce GTX 650 vs Radeon HD 7750
IntroThe GeForce GTX 650 has a clock frequency of 1058 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1250 MHz. It also makes use of a 128-bit bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It features 384 SPUs, 32 Texture Address Units, and 16 ROPs.
Compare those specifications to the Radeon HD 7750, which comes with GPU clock speed of 800 MHz, and 1024 MB of GDDR5 memory set to run at 1125 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also features 512 SPUs, 32 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks
Power Consumption (Max TDP)
The GeForce GTX 650 should theoretically be a small bit faster than the Radeon HD 7750 in general. (explain)
Texel RateThe GeForce GTX 650 should be a lot (approximately 32%) better at AF than the Radeon HD 7750. (explain)
Pixel RateThe GeForce GTX 650 should be quite a bit (about 32%) better at anti-aliasing than the Radeon HD 7750, and also capable of handling higher resolutions while still performing well. (explain)
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 (in units of MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.
Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in one second.
Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the video card could possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
