Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon HD 4830 512MB 95 Watts
Radeon HD 6770 108 Watts
Difference: 13 Watts (14%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon HD 6770 should be 17% quicker than the Radeon HD 4830 512MB in general, because of its greater data rate. (explain)

Radeon HD 6770 67200 MB/sec
Radeon HD 4830 512MB 57600 MB/sec
Difference: 9600 (17%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon HD 6770 will be quite a bit (approximately 96%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the Radeon HD 4830 512MB. (explain)

Radeon HD 6770 36000 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 4830 512MB 18400 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 17600 (96%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon HD 6770 is quite a bit (more or less 57%) better at anti-aliasing than the Radeon HD 4830 512MB, and should be able to handle higher resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

Radeon HD 6770 14400 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 4830 512MB 9200 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 5200 (57%)

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 maximum amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, 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 the video card could possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the clock 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 output rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
