GeForce 8800 GTX vs Radeon HD 5750 1GB

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GTX features a GPU core speed of 575 MHz, and the 768 MB of GDDR3 RAM is set to run at 900 MHz through a 384-bit bus. It also is made up of 128 SPUs, 64 Texture Address Units, and 24 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon HD 5750 1GB, which features core clock speeds of 700 MHz on the GPU, and 1150 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 720(144x5) SPUs along with 36 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the graphics card can possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
