GeForce GT 220 GDDR3 vs Radeon HD 5570

Intro

The GeForce GT 220 GDDR3 comes with a GPU core clock speed of 625 MHz, and the 512 MB of GDDR3 RAM is set to run at 1012 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is comprised of 48 SPUs, 16 Texture Address Units, and 8 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon HD 5570, which has core speeds of 650 MHz on the GPU, and 900 MHz on the 512 MB of DDR3 RAM. It features 400(80x5) SPUs along with 20 Texture Address Units and 8 Rasterization Operator Units.

(No game benchmarks for this combination yet.)

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon HD 5570 43 Watts
GeForce GT 220 GDDR3 58 Watts
Difference: 15 Watts (35%)

Memory Bandwidth

As far as performance goes, the GeForce GT 220 GDDR3 should theoretically be just a bit superior to the Radeon HD 5570 overall. (explain)

GeForce GT 220 GDDR3 32384 MB/sec
Radeon HD 5570 28800 MB/sec
Difference: 3584 (12%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon HD 5570 will be much (more or less 30%) more effective at AF than the GeForce GT 220 GDDR3. (explain)

Radeon HD 5570 13000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GT 220 GDDR3 10000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 3000 (30%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high resolution is important to you, then the Radeon HD 5570 is superior to the GeForce GT 220 GDDR3, but only just. (explain)

Radeon HD 5570 5200 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GT 220 GDDR3 5000 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 200 (4%)

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: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high 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 texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
