GeForce GT 210 vs Radeon HD 4650 1GB

Intro

The GeForce GT 210 uses a 40 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 589 MHz. The DDR3 memory runs at a frequency of 800 MHz on this particular card. It features 16 SPUs as well as 8 Texture Address Units and 4 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon HD 4650 1GB, which comes with a core clock frequency of 600 MHz and a GDDR3 memory speed of 700 MHz. It also uses a 128-bit memory bus, and uses a 55 nm design. It is comprised of 320(64x5) SPUs, 32 TAUs, and 8 ROPs.

GeForce GT 210 12800 MB/sec
Difference: 9600 (75%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon HD 4650 1GB will be a lot (approximately 307%) more effective at AF than the GeForce GT 210. (explain)

Radeon HD 4650 1GB 19200 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GT 210 4712 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 14488 (307%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high resolution is important to you, then the Radeon HD 4650 1GB is superior to the GeForce GT 210, by a large margin. (explain)

Radeon HD 4650 1GB 4800 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GT 210 2356 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 2444 (104%)

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 maximum amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the video 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 graphics card could possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel 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 reach the max fill rate.

I was going through nvidia gt 210 1gb ddr3 for so long. I couldnt play latest games on suitable resolution. It made me feel so bore. After some time i prefered amd ati raedon 4650 1gb ddr3. It was so amazing to play games through that. In short amd is much better than nvidia
