GeForce GT 430 vs Radeon HD 4350

Intro

The GeForce GT 430 has a core clock frequency of 700 MHz and a GDDR3 memory speed of 900 MHz. It also features a 128-bit bus, and uses a 40 nm design. It features 96 SPUs, 16 TAUs, and 4 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon HD 4350, which makes use of a 55 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 575 MHz. The DDR2 RAM works at a frequency of 500 MHz on this card. It features 80(16x5) SPUs along with 8 TAUs and 4 ROPs.

The GeForce GT 430 should be quite a bit (more or less 143%) more effective at AF than the Radeon HD 4350. (explain)

GeForce GT 430 11200 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 4350 4600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 6600 (143%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GT 430 will be a lot (more or less 22%) faster with regards to AA than the Radeon HD 4350, and will be able to handle higher resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

GeForce GT 430 2800 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 4350 2300 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 500 (22%)

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 information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in one second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total 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 in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
