Compare any two graphics cards:
Radeon HD 6750 1GB vs Radeon HD 7790
IntroThe Radeon HD 6750 1GB features a core clock frequency of 725 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 made up of 720 SPUs, 36 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.
Compare those specifications to the Radeon HD 7790, which has core clock speeds of 1000 MHz on the GPU, and 1500 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 896 SPUs along with 56 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks
Power Consumption (Max TDP)
The Radeon HD 7790 should in theory be a lot faster than the Radeon HD 6750 1GB in general. (explain)
Texel RateThe Radeon HD 7790 is quite a bit (more or less 115%) better at texture filtering than the Radeon HD 6750 1GB. (explain)
Pixel RateIf using high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon HD 7790 is superior to the Radeon HD 6750 1GB, by far. (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 max amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the better 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 are processed in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in one second.
Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card could possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output 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 maximum fill rate.
