Radeon HD 5770 vs Radeon HD 5830

Intro

The Radeon HD 5770 comes with a clock frequency of 850 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1200 MHz. It also features a 128-bit bus, and makes use of a 40 nm design. It is comprised of 800(160x5) SPUs, 40 Texture Address Units, and 16 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon HD 5830, which comes with a core clock speed of 800 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1000 MHz. It also uses a 256-bit bus, and makes use of a 40 nm design. It features 1120(224x5) SPUs, 56 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon HD 5770 108 Watts
Radeon HD 5830 175 Watts
Difference: 67 Watts (62%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon HD 5830 should be 67% faster than the Radeon HD 5770 overall, because of its greater bandwidth. (explain)

Radeon HD 5830 128000 MB/sec
Radeon HD 5770 76800 MB/sec
Difference: 51200 (67%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon HD 5830 should be much (approximately 32%) more effective at texture filtering than the Radeon HD 5770. (explain)

Radeon HD 5830 44800 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 5770 34000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 10800 (32%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high screen resolution is important to you, then the Radeon HD 5770 is a better choice, though not by far. (explain)

Radeon HD 5770 13600 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 5830 12800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 800 (6%)

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: Bandwidth is the max amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This is calculated 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 video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card could possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
