Compare any two graphics cards:
GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB vs Radeon HD 7770
IntroThe GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB features a core clock speed of 928 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1350 MHz. It also features a 128-bit bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It features 768 SPUs, 64 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.
Compare those specifications to the Radeon HD 7770, which features a core clock speed of 1000 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1125 MHz. It also uses a 128-bit bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It is made up of 640 SPUs, 40 Texture Address Units, and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks
Power Consumption (Max TDP)
Theoretically speaking, the GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB should perform just a bit faster than the Radeon HD 7770 overall. (explain)
Texel RateThe GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB is much (approximately 48%) more effective at AF than the Radeon HD 7770. (explain)
Pixel RateIf using high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon HD 7770 is the winner, but only just. (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: Bandwidth is the max amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.
Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card 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 in a second.
Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the video card could possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
