Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon HD 5670 61 Watts
GeForce 9800 GT 512MB 105 Watts
Difference: 44 Watts (72%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon HD 5670 is 11% faster than the GeForce 9800 GT 512MB in general, because of its higher data rate. (explain)

Radeon HD 5670 64000 MB/sec
GeForce 9800 GT 512MB 57600 MB/sec
Difference: 6400 (11%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 9800 GT 512MB is much (about 117%) more effective at AF than the Radeon HD 5670. (explain)

GeForce 9800 GT 512MB 33600 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 5670 15500 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 18100 (117%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high resolution is important to you, then the GeForce 9800 GT 512MB is superior to the Radeon HD 5670, and very much so. (explain)

GeForce 9800 GT 512MB 9600 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 5670 6200 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 3400 (55%)

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 megabytes per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total texture units 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 applied in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the video card could possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.

looks like hd5670 would be fast, just wait a few weeks when its driver is already matured so we can play modern games at good settings 🙂
