GeForce GT 340 vs Radeon HD 4770

Intro

The GeForce GT 340 has core clock speeds of 550 MHz on the GPU, and 850 MHz on the 512 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 96 SPUs as well as 32 TAUs and 8 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon HD 4770, which features a clock frequency of 750 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 800 MHz. It also features a 128-bit memory bus, and uses a 40 nm design. It is comprised of 640(128x5) SPUs, 32 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GT 340 69 Watts
Radeon HD 4770 80 Watts
Difference: 11 Watts (16%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the GeForce GT 340 should be 6% faster than the Radeon HD 4770 overall, because of its greater bandwidth. (explain)

GeForce GT 340 54400 MB/sec
Radeon HD 4770 51200 MB/sec
Difference: 3200 (6%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon HD 4770 should be quite a bit (approximately 36%) more effective at AF than the GeForce GT 340. (explain)

Radeon HD 4770 24000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GT 340 17600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 6400 (36%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high resolution is important to you, then the Radeon HD 4770 is the winner, by a large margin. (explain)

Radeon HD 4770 12000 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GT 340 4400 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 7600 (173%)

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 largest amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the video card could possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
