Compare any two graphics cards:
GeForce GTX 570 vs GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB
IntroThe GeForce GTX 570 features core speeds of 732 MHz on the GPU, and 950 MHz on the 1280 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 480 SPUs as well as 60 TAUs and 40 Rasterization Operator Units.
Compare all that to the GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB, which has a clock speed of 928 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1350 MHz. It also makes use of a 128-bit memory bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It features 768 SPUs, 64 Texture Address Units, and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks
Power Consumption (Max TDP)
In theory, the GeForce GTX 570 should be 76% faster than the GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB overall, because of its greater data rate. (explain)
Texel RateThe GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB is quite a bit (more or less 35%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the GeForce GTX 570. (explain)
Pixel RateIf running with a high resolution is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 570 is superior to the GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB, by a large margin. (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 maximum amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, 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 can be applied in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in one second.
Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card could possibly write to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as 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 bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
