Radeon HD 4730 vs Radeon HD 6770

Intro

The Radeon HD 4730 comes with a GPU core clock speed of 700 MHz, and the 512 MB of GDDR5 RAM runs at 900 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is comprised of 640(128x5) SPUs, 32 TAUs, and 8 ROPs.

Compare that to the Radeon HD 6770, which uses a 40 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 900 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a frequency of 1050 MHz on this specific model. It features 800 SPUs as well as 40 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels 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 number of Raster Operations Pipelines 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 rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
