Compare any two graphics cards:
GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB vs Radeon HD 7770
IntroThe GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB makes use of a 28 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 928 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM works at a speed of 1350 MHz on this specific card. It features 768 SPUs along with 64 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.
Compare all that to the Radeon HD 7770, which comes with core clock speeds of 1000 MHz on the GPU, and 1125 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 640 SPUs as well as 40 TAUs and 16 ROPs.
Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks
Power Consumption (Max TDP)
As far as performance goes, the GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB should theoretically be a little bit better than the Radeon HD 7770 in general. (explain)
Texel RateThe GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB should be much (approximately 48%) more effective at AF than the Radeon HD 7770. (explain)
Pixel RateIf using a high screen resolution is important to you, then the Radeon HD 7770 is superior to the GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB, 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.
Please note that the price comparisons are based on search keywords - sometimes it might show cards with very similar names that are not exactly the same as the one chosen in the comparison. We do try to filter out the wrong results as best we can, though.
Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the max amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better 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 processed per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in one second.
Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card could possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out 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 outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
