GeForce GT 240 GDDR5 vs Radeon HD 5570

Intro

The GeForce GT 240 GDDR5 comes with a core clock frequency of 550 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 850 MHz. It also makes use of a 128-bit bus, and uses a 40 nm design. It features 96 SPUs, 32 TAUs, and 8 ROPs.

Compare that to the Radeon HD 5570, which features GPU clock speed of 650 MHz, and 512 MB of DDR3 memory running at 900 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is comprised of 400(80x5) SPUs, 20 TAUs, and 8 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core clock 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 applied in a 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 colour ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
