GeForce GT 210 vs Radeon HD 6770

Intro

The GeForce GT 210 has a GPU clock speed of 589 MHz, and the 512 MB of DDR3 memory runs at 800 MHz through a 64-bit bus. It also is made up of 16 Stream Processors, 8 Texture Address Units, and 4 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon HD 6770, which makes use of a 40 nm design. AMD has set the core speed at 900 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a speed of 1050 MHz on this card. It features 800 SPUs along with 40 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the max amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in a second. It is worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This number 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 card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics chip could possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
