Compare any two graphics cards:
GeForce GTX 650 vs Radeon HD 4350
IntroThe GeForce GTX 650 comes with a clock frequency of 1058 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1250 MHz. It also features a 128-bit memory bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It features 384 SPUs, 32 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.
Compare those specifications to the Radeon HD 4350, which comes with clock speeds of 575 MHz on the GPU, and 500 MHz on the 512 MB of DDR2 RAM. It features 80(16x5) SPUs as well as 8 Texture Address Units and 4 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks
Power Consumption (Max TDP)
Performance-wise, the GeForce GTX 650 should in theory be a lot superior to the Radeon HD 4350 in general. (explain)
Texel RateThe GeForce GTX 650 should be quite a bit (approximately 636%) faster with regards to AF than the Radeon HD 4350. (explain)
Pixel RateThe GeForce GTX 650 is a lot (approximately 636%) better at full screen anti-aliasing than the Radeon HD 4350, and also able to handle higher screen resolutions better. (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.
Price ComparisonPlease note that the price comparisons are based on search keywords, and might not be the exact same card listed on this page. We have no control over the accuracy of their search results.
Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported past 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 type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the video 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 write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
