Radeon HD 4850 X2 1GB vs Radeon HD 5750 512MB

Intro

The Radeon HD 4850 X2 1GB makes use of a 55 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 625 MHz. The GDDR3 memory is set to run at a speed of 993 MHz on this card. It features 800(160x5) SPUs along with 40 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon HD 5750 512MB, which uses a 40 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 700 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a speed of 1150 MHz on this particular model. It features 720(144x5) SPUs as well as 36 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon HD 5750 512MB 86 Watts
Radeon HD 4850 X2 1GB 250 Watts
Difference: 164 Watts (191%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon HD 4850 X2 1GB should be 73% faster than the Radeon HD 5750 512MB in general, due to its greater bandwidth. (explain)

Radeon HD 4850 X2 1GB 127104 MB/sec
Radeon HD 5750 512MB 73600 MB/sec
Difference: 53504 (73%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon HD 4850 X2 1GB will be quite a bit (about 98%) better at AF than the Radeon HD 5750 512MB. (explain)

Radeon HD 4850 X2 1GB 50000 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 5750 512MB 25200 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 24800 (98%)

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon HD 4850 X2 1GB is a better choice, by far. (explain)

Radeon HD 4850 X2 1GB 20000 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 5750 512MB 11200 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 8800 (79%)

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.

One or more cards in this comparison are multi-core. This means that their bandwidth, texel and pixel rates are theoretically doubled - this does not mean the card will actually perform twice as fast, but only that it should in theory be able to. Actual game benchmarks will give a more accurate idea of what it's capable of.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface within a second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 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 can be applied in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units 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 in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory in a 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 called 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 of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
