GeForce 9800 GTX+ vs Radeon HD 6770

Intro

The GeForce 9800 GTX+ makes use of a 55 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 738 MHz. The GDDR3 memory runs at a speed of 1100 MHz on this particular card. It features 128 SPUs along with 64 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon HD 6770, which uses a 40 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 900 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM runs at a speed of 1050 MHz on this specific card. It features 800 SPUs as well as 40 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the max amount of information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the video card could possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
