GeForce GT 320 vs Radeon HD 4650 1GB

Intro

The GeForce GT 320 comes with core speeds of 540 MHz on the GPU, and 790 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR3 memory. It features 72 SPUs as well as 24 Texture Address Units and 8 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon HD 4650 1GB, which features clock speeds of 600 MHz on the GPU, and 700 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR3 memory. It features 320(64x5) SPUs along with 32 Texture Address Units and 8 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GT 320 43 Watts
Radeon HD 4650 1GB 55 Watts
Difference: 12 Watts (28%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically, the GeForce GT 320 should be a small bit faster than the Radeon HD 4650 1GB in general. (explain)

GeForce GT 320 25280 MB/sec
Radeon HD 4650 1GB 22400 MB/sec
Difference: 2880 (13%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon HD 4650 1GB should be quite a bit (about 48%) more effective at AF than the GeForce GT 320. (explain)

Radeon HD 4650 1GB 19200 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GT 320 12960 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 6240 (48%)

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon HD 4650 1GB is superior to the GeForce GT 320, not by a very large margin though. (explain)

Radeon HD 4650 1GB 4800 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GT 320 4320 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 480 (11%)

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: Bandwidth is the largest amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be 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 better the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics chip 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 clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
