GeForce GTX 650 Ti vs Radeon HD 7770

Intro

The GeForce GTX 650 Ti uses a 28 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 928 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a speed of 1350 MHz on this particular card. It features 768 SPUs as well as 64 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon HD 7770, which uses a 28 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 1000 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM runs at a frequency of 1125 MHz on this specific card. It features 640 SPUs along with 40 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon HD 7770 80 Watts
GeForce GTX 650 Ti 110 Watts
Difference: 30 Watts (38%)

Memory Bandwidth

The GeForce GTX 650 Ti should in theory perform just a bit faster than the Radeon HD 7770 overall. (explain)

GeForce GTX 650 Ti 86400 MB/sec
Radeon HD 7770 72000 MB/sec
Difference: 14400 (20%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 650 Ti should be quite a bit (more or less 48%) faster with regards to AF than the Radeon HD 7770. (explain)

GeForce GTX 650 Ti 59392 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 7770 40000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 19392 (48%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high screen resolution is important to you, then the Radeon HD 7770 is a better choice, not by a very large margin though. (explain)

Radeon HD 7770 16000 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 650 Ti 14848 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 1152 (8%)

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 a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR 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 number is worked out by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
