GeForce GTX 650 Ti vs Radeon HD 7850


Intro

The GeForce GTX 650 Ti uses a 28 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 928 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a frequency of 1350 MHz on this specific model. It features 768 SPUs along with 64 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon HD 7850, which makes use of a 28 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 860 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM runs at a frequency of 1200 MHz on this card. It features 1024 SPUs along with 64 Texture Address Units and 32 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high 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 number of texture units of the card 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 per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.

I would like to see Game bench results. The 650Ti is one of those cards that is overlooked. Many do not realize just how good a card it is. I had a 5870 in my i5 that the fan went out on. When I purchased the 650Ti (91$ Bucks)I thought it would be a little less or the same in performance as the 5870. But it does so much better than the 5870 on my i5. I would say it will beat the 7850 too.
