GeForce GT 220 GDDR3 vs Radeon HD 5570

Intro

The GeForce GT 220 GDDR3 has a GPU clock speed of 625 MHz, and the 512 MB of GDDR3 RAM runs at 1012 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is made up of 48 SPUs, 16 Texture Address Units, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Compare that to the Radeon HD 5570, which makes use of a 40 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 650 MHz. The DDR3 memory is set to run at a speed of 900 MHz on this specific card. It features 400(80x5) SPUs as well as 20 Texture Address Units and 8 Rasterization Operator Units.

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

In theory, the GeForce GT 220 GDDR3 will be 12% faster than the Radeon HD 5570 in general, due to its higher bandwidth. (explain)

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

Texel Rate

The Radeon HD 5570 should be a lot (about 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 screen resolution is important to you, then the Radeon HD 5570 is a better choice, 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 max amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once 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 anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total texture units by the core clock 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 applied in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the video card can possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
