Radeon HD 3850 512MB vs Radeon HD 4750

Intro

The Radeon HD 3850 512MB uses a 55 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 668 MHz. The GDDR3 memory runs at a speed of 828 MHz on this specific model. It features 320(64x5) SPUs along with 16 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon HD 4750, which has core speeds of 730 MHz on the GPU, and 800 MHz on the 512 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 640(128x5) SPUs along with 32 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Both cards have the same power consumption.

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon HD 3850 512MB is 4% faster than the Radeon HD 4750 overall, because of its greater data rate. (explain)

Radeon HD 3850 512MB 52992 MB/sec
Radeon HD 4750 51200 MB/sec
Difference: 1792 (4%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon HD 4750 should be much (about 119%) more effective at AF than the Radeon HD 3850 512MB. (explain)

Radeon HD 4750 23360 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 3850 512MB 10688 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 12672 (119%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon HD 4750 will be a small bit (more or less 9%) more effective at FSAA than the Radeon HD 3850 512MB, and will be capable of handling higher screen resolutions while still performing well. (explain)

Radeon HD 4750 11680 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 3850 512MB 10688 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 992 (9%)

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 data (measured in MB per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface within a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the core clock speed. 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 output rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
