Compare any two graphics cards:
Geforce GTX 760 vs Geforce GTX 770
IntroThe Geforce GTX 760 comes with core speeds of 980 MHz on the GPU, and 1502 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 1152 SPUs along with 96 TAUs and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.
Compare all of that to the Geforce GTX 770, which comes with clock speeds of 1046 MHz on the GPU, and 1753 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 1536 SPUs along with 128 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks
Power Consumption (Max TDP)
In theory, the Geforce GTX 770 should perform a little bit faster than the Geforce GTX 760 overall. (explain)
Texel RateThe Geforce GTX 770 should be a lot (more or less 42%) more effective at texture filtering than the Geforce GTX 760. (explain)
Pixel RateThe Geforce GTX 770 will be a little bit (more or less 7%) better at anti-aliasing than the Geforce GTX 760, and should be able to handle higher screen resolutions better. (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 information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface within a second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.
Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the graphics 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 video card can possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
