GeForce GT 240 GDDR5 vs Radeon HD 6750 1GB

Intro

The GeForce GT 240 GDDR5 comes with a GPU core speed of 550 MHz, and the 512 MB of GDDR5 memory is set to run at 850 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also features 96 SPUs, 32 TAUs, and 8 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon HD 6750 1GB, which comes with a clock frequency of 725 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1000 MHz. It also features a 128-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 40 nm design. It features 720 SPUs, 36 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

The Radeon HD 6750 1GB should be much (more or less 48%) more effective at texture filtering than the GeForce GT 240 GDDR5. (explain)

Radeon HD 6750 1GB 26100 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GT 240 GDDR5 17600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 8500 (48%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon HD 6750 1GB will be quite a bit (approximately 164%) faster with regards to FSAA than the GeForce GT 240 GDDR5, and will be able to handle higher resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

Radeon HD 6750 1GB 11600 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GT 240 GDDR5 4400 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 7200 (164%)

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 data (measured in MB per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface within a second. It is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher 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 maximum amount of pixels the graphics card can possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
