Compare any two graphics cards:
Geforce GTX 760 vs Geforce GTX 770
IntroThe Geforce GTX 760 comes with a GPU core speed of 980 MHz, and the 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM runs at 1502 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is made up of 1152 SPUs, 96 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.
Compare those specs to the Geforce GTX 770, which comes with a clock frequency of 1046 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1753 MHz. It also features a 256-bit bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It is comprised of 1536 SPUs, 128 TAUs, and 32 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks
Power Consumption (Max TDP)
Performance-wise, the Geforce GTX 770 should theoretically be a bit better than the Geforce GTX 760 in general. (explain)
Texel RateThe Geforce GTX 770 should be much (about 42%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the Geforce GTX 760. (explain)
Pixel RateThe Geforce GTX 770 will be a bit (approximately 7%) faster with regards to AA 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.
Price ComparisonPlease note that the price comparisons are based on search keywords, and might not be the exact same card listed on this page. We have no control over the accuracy of their search results.
Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the max amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.
Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the graphics 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 number of pixels that the graphics card could possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the card's 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 many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
