Compare any two graphics cards:
GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB vs Radeon HD 6670 (OEM) 1GB
IntroThe GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB comes with a clock speed of 928 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1350 MHz. It also makes use of a 128-bit bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It is made up of 768 SPUs, 64 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.
Compare those specs to the Radeon HD 6670 (OEM) 1GB, which comes with a core clock speed of 800 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1000 MHz. It also uses a 128-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 40 nm design. It is comprised of 480 SPUs, 24 TAUs, and 8 Raster Operation Units.
Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks
Power Consumption (Max TDP)
In theory, the GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB should be much faster than the Radeon HD 6670 (OEM) 1GB in general. (explain)
Texel RateThe GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB should be a lot (approximately 209%) more effective at AF than the Radeon HD 6670 (OEM) 1GB. (explain)
Pixel RateThe GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB will be quite a bit (more or less 132%) more effective at FSAA than the Radeon HD 6670 (OEM) 1GB, and capable of handling higher screen resolutions without slowing down too much. (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: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface within a second. It's calculated by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR memory, it 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 AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.
Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in a second.
Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card can possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also 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 ability to get to the max fill rate.
