GeForce GT 220 GDDR3 vs Radeon HD 5830

Intro

The GeForce GT 220 GDDR3 has a core clock frequency of 625 MHz and a GDDR3 memory frequency of 1012 MHz. It also makes use of a 128-bit memory bus, and uses a 40 nm design. It features 48 SPUs, 16 Texture Address Units, and 8 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon HD 5830, which has core clock speeds of 800 MHz on the GPU, and 1000 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 1120(224x5) SPUs along with 56 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

GeForce GT 220 GDDR3 58 Watts
Radeon HD 5830 175 Watts
Difference: 117 Watts (202%)

Memory Bandwidth

As far as performance goes, the Radeon HD 5830 should theoretically be quite a bit better than the GeForce GT 220 GDDR3 in general. (explain)

Radeon HD 5830 128000 MB/sec
GeForce GT 220 GDDR3 32384 MB/sec
Difference: 95616 (295%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon HD 5830 will be a lot (more or less 348%) more effective at texture filtering than the GeForce GT 220 GDDR3. (explain)

Radeon HD 5830 44800 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GT 220 GDDR3 10000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 34800 (348%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon HD 5830 is a better choice, and very much so. (explain)

Radeon HD 5830 12800 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GT 220 GDDR3 5000 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 7800 (156%)

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 maximum amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in a second. It is calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card can possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines 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 output rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
