GeForce GTS 450 vs Radeon HD 6770

Intro

The GeForce GTS 450 comes with a GPU core clock speed of 783 MHz, and the 512 MB of GDDR5 RAM is set to run at 902 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also features 192 SPUs, 32 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon HD 6770, which comes with core speeds of 900 MHz on the GPU, and 1050 MHz on the 512 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 800 SPUs along with 40 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GTS 450 106 Watts
Radeon HD 6770 108 Watts
Difference: 2 Watts (2%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon HD 6770 should be a bit faster than the GeForce GTS 450 in general. (explain)

Radeon HD 6770 67200 MB/sec
GeForce GTS 450 57728 MB/sec
Difference: 9472 (16%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon HD 6770 will be quite a bit (more or less 44%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTS 450. (explain)

Radeon HD 6770 36000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTS 450 25056 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 10944 (44%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon HD 6770 should be just a bit (more or less 15%) faster with regards to full screen anti-aliasing than the GeForce GTS 450, and will be capable of handling higher resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

Radeon HD 6770 14400 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTS 450 12528 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 1872 (15%)

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 megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR 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 number of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the graphics card will be at 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 that the graphics card can possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends 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 max fill rate.
