Compare any two graphics cards:
Radeon HD 7750 vs Radeon R7 240
IntroThe Radeon HD 7750 has core speeds of 800 MHz on the GPU, and 1125 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 512 SPUs as well as 32 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.
Compare those specs to the Radeon R7 240, which features GPU core speed of 730 MHz, and 2048 MB of DDR3 RAM set to run at 900 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also features 320 Stream Processors, 20 Texture Address Units, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks
Power Consumption (Max TDP)
Theoretically, the Radeon HD 7750 should perform much faster than the Radeon R7 240 overall. (explain)
Texel RateThe Radeon HD 7750 should be much (about 75%) more effective at AF than the Radeon R7 240. (explain)
Pixel RateThe Radeon HD 7750 will be a lot (about 119%) better at full screen anti-aliasing than the Radeon R7 240, and also will be able to handle higher screen resolutions more effectively. (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: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface within a second. It's worked out by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. 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 texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in a second.
Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the graphics card could possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
