Compare any two graphics cards:
Geforce GTX 760 vs Radeon HD 4670 1GB
IntroThe Geforce GTX 760 uses a 28 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 980 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a speed of 1502 MHz on this specific card. It features 1152 SPUs as well as 96 Texture Address Units and 32 ROPs.
Compare all of that to the Radeon HD 4670 1GB, which makes use of a 55 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 750 MHz. The GDDR4/GDDR3/DDR3/DDR2 RAM is set to run at a speed of 1100 MHz on this specific model. It features 320(64x5) SPUs along with 32 Texture Address Units and 8 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks
Power Consumption (Max TDP)
As far as performance goes, the Geforce GTX 760 should in theory be a lot better than the Radeon HD 4670 1GB overall. (explain)
Texel RateThe Geforce GTX 760 should be much (approximately 292%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the Radeon HD 4670 1GB. (explain)
Pixel RateIf using a high resolution is important to you, then the Geforce GTX 760 is a better choice, 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 largest amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in one second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.
Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in a second.
Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of 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 output rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
