Radeon HD 6770 1GB vs Radeon HD 6790

Intro

The Radeon HD 6770 1GB features clock speeds of 900 MHz on the GPU, and 1050 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 800 SPUs as well as 40 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon HD 6790, which comes with GPU core speed of 840 MHz, and 1024 MB of GDDR5 memory running at 1050 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is comprised of 800 SPUs, 40 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon HD 6770 1GB 108 Watts
Radeon HD 6790 150 Watts
Difference: 42 Watts (39%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon HD 6790 is 100% faster than the Radeon HD 6770 1GB in general, due to its greater bandwidth. (explain)

Radeon HD 6790 134400 MB/sec
Radeon HD 6770 1GB 67200 MB/sec
Difference: 67200 (100%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon HD 6770 1GB will be a little bit (approximately 7%) better at AF than the Radeon HD 6790. (explain)

Radeon HD 6770 1GB 36000 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 6790 33600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 2400 (7%)

Pixel Rate

If running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon HD 6770 1GB is superior to the Radeon HD 6790, but not by far. (explain)

Radeon HD 6770 1GB 14400 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 6790 13440 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 960 (7%)

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 largest amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in one second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the bandwidth is, the better 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 can be applied per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, 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 number of pixels the video card could possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on 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 ability to get to the max fill rate.
