Compare any two graphics cards:
VS

GeForce GT 210 vs Radeon HD 4650 1GB

Intro

The GeForce GT 210 has clock speeds of 589 MHz on the GPU, and 800 MHz on the 512 MB of DDR3 RAM. It features 16 SPUs as well as 8 TAUs and 4 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all of that to the Radeon HD 4650 1GB, which makes use of a 55 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 600 MHz. The GDDR3 RAM is set to run at a speed of 700 MHz on this model. It features 320(64x5) SPUs along with 32 TAUs and 8 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GT 210 31 Watts
Radeon HD 4650 1GB 55 Watts
Difference: 24 Watts (77%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically, the Radeon HD 4650 1GB should be quite a bit faster than the GeForce GT 210 overall. (explain)

Radeon HD 4650 1GB 22400 MB/sec
GeForce GT 210 12800 MB/sec
Difference: 9600 (75%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon HD 4650 1GB should be quite a bit (about 307%) more effective at texture filtering 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 lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon HD 4650 1GB is the winner, and very much so. (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: Bandwidth is the max amount of information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the 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 maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to 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
