Compare any two graphics cards:

Radeon HD 5770 vs Radeon HD 6770 1GB


The Radeon HD 5770 comes with core speeds of 850 MHz on the GPU, and 1200 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 800(160x5) SPUs along with 40 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Compare that to the Radeon HD 6770 1GB, which uses a 40 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 900 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM is set to run at a frequency of 1050 MHz on this specific card. It features 800 SPUs along with 40 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

(No game benchmarks for this combination yet.)

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Both cards have the same power consumption.

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon HD 5770 is 14% quicker than the Radeon HD 6770 1GB in general, because of its greater bandwidth. (explain)

Radeon HD 5770 76800 MB/sec
Radeon HD 6770 1GB 67200 MB/sec
Difference: 9600 (14%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon HD 6770 1GB should be a little bit (approximately 6%) faster with regards to AF than the Radeon HD 5770. (explain)

Radeon HD 6770 1GB 36000 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 5770 34000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 2000 (6%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high resolution is important to you, then the Radeon HD 6770 1GB is the winner, but only just. (explain)

Radeon HD 6770 1GB 14400 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 5770 13600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 800 (6%)

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 information (counted in MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR 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 texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics chip can possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.

Pete says:
Probably not, the cards need to be of at least the same generation. Besides, these two cards are so close you might as well get a second 5770 if you're going to upgrade, save you some hassle.

It's a shame that the new generation improved so low from the previous,with prices rising sky-high.I really think the 6770 should have been better.
