Radeon HD 5750 512MB vs Radeon R7 250

Intro

The Radeon HD 5750 512MB has core speeds of 700 MHz on the GPU, and 1150 MHz on the 512 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 720(144x5) SPUs along with 36 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon R7 250, which comes with a clock frequency of 1000 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1150 MHz. It also features a 128-bit bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It is comprised of 384 SPUs, 24 Texture Address Units, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon R7 250 65 Watts
Radeon HD 5750 512MB 86 Watts
Difference: 21 Watts (32%)

Memory Bandwidth

Both cards have the exact same memory bandwidth, so in theory they should perform the same. (explain)

Texel Rate

The Radeon HD 5750 512MB is just a bit (more or less 5%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the Radeon R7 250. (explain)

Radeon HD 5750 512MB 25200 Mtexels/sec
Radeon R7 250 24000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 1200 (5%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon HD 5750 512MB is the winner, and very much so. (explain)

Radeon HD 5750 512MB 11200 Mpixels/sec
Radeon R7 250 8000 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 3200 (40%)

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 largest amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the 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 most pixels that the graphics card can possibly write to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the card's 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 many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
