GeForce 8400 GS 512MB vs Radeon HD 5570


Intro

The GeForce 8400 GS 512MB comes with a GPU core clock speed of 650 MHz, and the 512 MB of DDR2 memory is set to run at 400 MHz through a 64-bit bus. It also is made up of 16 Stream Processors, 8 TAUs, and 4 ROPs.

Compare that to the Radeon HD 5570, which uses a 40 nm design. AMD has set the core speed at 650 MHz. The DDR3 memory works at a speed of 900 MHz on this specific model. It features 400(80x5) SPUs as well as 20 TAUs and 8 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce 8400 GS 512MB 40 Watts
Radeon HD 5570 43 Watts
Difference: 3 Watts (8%)

Memory Bandwidth

The Radeon HD 5570 should in theory perform much faster than the GeForce 8400 GS 512MB overall. (explain)

Radeon HD 5570 28800 MB/sec
GeForce 8400 GS 512MB 6400 MB/sec
Difference: 22400 (350%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon HD 5570 will be much (more or less 150%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce 8400 GS 512MB. (explain)

Radeon HD 5570 13000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 8400 GS 512MB 5200 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 7800 (150%)

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon HD 5570 is superior to the GeForce 8400 GS 512MB, and very much so. (explain)

Radeon HD 5570 5200 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 8400 GS 512MB 2600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 2600 (100%)

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: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in one second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total number 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 texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
