GeForce GTX 560 Ti vs Radeon R7 240

Intro

The GeForce GTX 560 Ti makes use of a 40 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 822 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM works at a speed of 1002 MHz on this card. It features 384 SPUs along with 64 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon R7 240, which has a GPU core clock speed of 730 MHz, and 2048 MB of DDR3 RAM set to run at 900 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is comprised of 320 SPUs, 20 Texture Address Units, and 8 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in one second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the better 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 processed per second. This is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
