GeForce GTX 560 Ti vs Radeon HD 5770


The GeForce GTX 560 Ti uses a 40 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 822 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM works at a frequency of 1002 MHz on this particular model. It features 384 SPUs as well as 64 TAUs and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon HD 5770, which comes with a clock speed of 850 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1200 MHz. It also uses a 128-bit memory bus, and uses a 40 nm design. It is comprised of 800(160x5) SPUs, 40 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in one second. The number is calculated by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card could possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.

[...] Third argument is upgradability. Go google “iMac”. Look at it. It’s a giant white square pancake with a keyboard and a mouse with one button connected to it. It’s like a laptop: not very powerful and annoying to upgrade. Notice I said “annoying” and not impossible. Upgrading RAM is just finding compatible RAM and slotting it in which I think means the Apple store or Apple suppliers only. Not much room for fans there either. I went to the electronics store here the other day and touched the back of the screen of an iMac that had been on all day… it literally burnt my fingers. You could look into the Mac Pro, the tower Mac but they range in price from $2.5k- $5k (AU$3k-$6k). Here I’d like to point out that for AU$3400 (comparing to the AU$6k Mac Pro), you can get the NRG Avalanche that has half the cores (6 cores @ 3.9Ghz that have been overclocked to 4.5Ghz), twice as much hard drive space (plus a 120GB SSD), 10GB more RAM, and a slightly more powerful graphics card.
