GeForce GT 430 1GB vs Radeon HD 5450

Intro

The GeForce GT 430 1GB features core clock speeds of 700 MHz on the GPU, and 900 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR3 RAM. It features 96 SPUs along with 16 Texture Address Units and 4 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon HD 5450, which features a clock speed of 650 MHz and a DDR3 memory speed of 800 MHz. It also uses a 64-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 40 nm design. It is made up of 80(16x5) SPUs, 8 TAUs, and 4 Raster Operation Units.

Radeon HD 5450 12800 MB/sec
Difference: 16000 (125%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GT 430 1GB will be much (more or less 115%) more effective at AF than the Radeon HD 5450. (explain)

GeForce GT 430 1GB 11200 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 5450 5200 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 6000 (115%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce GT 430 1GB is the winner, though not by far. (explain)

GeForce GT 430 1GB 2800 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 5450 2600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 200 (8%)

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 max amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface within a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 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, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the graphics card can possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number 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 filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
