Compare any two graphics cards:
Geforce GTX 770 vs Radeon R9 380 4G
IntroThe Geforce GTX 770 comes with clock speeds of 1046 MHz on the GPU, and 1753 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 1536 SPUs along with 128 TAUs and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.
Compare all of that to the Radeon R9 380 4G, which has a core clock frequency of 970 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1425 MHz. It also makes use of a 256-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It is comprised of 1792 SPUs, 112 Texture Address Units, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks
Power Consumption (Max TDP)
In theory, the Geforce GTX 770 should be a lot faster than the Radeon R9 380 4G in general. (explain)
Texel RateThe Geforce GTX 770 is much (approximately 23%) more effective at texture filtering than the Radeon R9 380 4G. (explain)
Pixel RateThe Geforce GTX 770 will be just a bit (more or less 8%) faster with regards to full screen anti-aliasing than the Radeon R9 380 4G, and should be capable of handling higher screen resolutions while still performing well. (explain)
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.
Please note that the price comparisons are based on search keywords - sometimes it might show cards with very similar names that are not exactly the same as the one chosen in the comparison. We do try to filter out the wrong results as best we can, though.
Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. In the case of 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 anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.
Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels per second.
Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as 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, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
