GeForce GT 340 vs Radeon HD 5670

Intro

The GeForce GT 340 uses a 40 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 550 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a frequency of 850 MHz on this specific card. It features 96 SPUs along with 32 TAUs and 8 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon HD 5670, which uses a 40 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 775 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a speed of 1000 MHz on this specific model. It features 400(80x5) SPUs as well as 20 Texture Address Units and 8 Rasterization Operator Units.

Radeon HD 5670 64000 MB/sec
GeForce GT 340 54400 MB/sec
Difference: 9600 (18%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GT 340 should be a little bit (about 14%) better at AF than the Radeon HD 5670. (explain)

GeForce GT 340 17600 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 5670 15500 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 2100 (14%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon HD 5670 will be a lot (about 41%) better at AA than the GeForce GT 340, and also should be capable of handling higher resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

Radeon HD 5670 6200 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GT 340 4400 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 1800 (41%)

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 max amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface within a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the 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 write to the 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 sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate also depends on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
