A Question

Compare any two graphics cards:
VS

Geforce GTX 760 vs Radeon HD 7950 3GB

Intro

The Geforce GTX 760 features a GPU core clock 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 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon HD 7950 3GB, which makes use of a 28 nm design. AMD has set the core speed at 800 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a frequency of 1250 MHz on this specific card. It features 1792 SPUs along with 112 TAUs and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Geforce GTX 760 192256 MB/sec
Difference: 47744 (25%)

Texel Rate

The Geforce GTX 760 will be a little bit (approximately 5%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the Radeon HD 7950 3GB. (explain)

Geforce GTX 760 94080 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 7950 3GB 89600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 4480 (5%)

Pixel Rate

If using high levels of AA is important to you, then the Geforce GTX 760 is superior to the Radeon HD 7950 3GB, and very much so. (explain)

Geforce GTX 760 31360 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 7950 3GB 25600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 5760 (23%)

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: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (counted in MB per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, the better 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 are applied per second. This is worked out by multiplying the total texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs 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 rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.

amd PENETRATES everything

Jack Black says:

Jesus, look how behind the times compared with the 7950 the 760 is. The 7950 still beats it in IRL, even 18 months on...

Jack Black smells says:

The 760 is a newer card than the 7950. What are you talking about?

james adkins says:

actually... in real world tests, the 760 would outperform a 7950 by a few fps just because of the nvidia drivers... if mantle was included in every game however, then the amd card would win..... i own an xfx radeon hd 7950, and i can say, it is a good card, but nothing compared to nvidia cards
