GeForce 820M vs Radeon HD 5450

Intro

The GeForce 820M features a GPU core speed of 719 MHz, and the 2048 MB of DDR3 RAM runs at 1000 MHz through a 64-bit bus. It also is comprised of 96 SPUs, 16 Texture Address Units, and 4 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon HD 5450, which uses a 40 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 650 MHz. The DDR3 RAM works at a frequency of 800 MHz on this specific model. It features 80(16x5) SPUs as well as 8 TAUs and 4 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce 820M 15 Watts
Radeon HD 5450 19 Watts
Difference: 4 Watts (27%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the GeForce 820M should be quite a bit faster than the Radeon HD 5450 overall. (explain)

GeForce 820M 16000 MB/sec
Radeon HD 5450 12800 MB/sec
Difference: 3200 (25%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 820M should be much (about 121%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the Radeon HD 5450. (explain)

GeForce 820M 11504 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 5450 5200 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 6304 (121%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high screen resolution is important to you, then the GeForce 820M is the winner, but not by far. (explain)

GeForce 820M 2876 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 5450 2600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 276 (11%)

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 MB per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the 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 texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total texture units 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 in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics chip can possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated 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 fill rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
