Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon HD 6750 1GB 86 Watts
GeForce 8800 GT 512MB 105 Watts
Difference: 19 Watts (22%)

Memory Bandwidth

The Radeon HD 6750 1GB should theoretically be just a bit faster than the GeForce 8800 GT 512MB overall. (explain)

Radeon HD 6750 1GB 64000 MB/sec
GeForce 8800 GT 512MB 57600 MB/sec
Difference: 6400 (11%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 8800 GT 512MB is quite a bit (more or less 29%) more effective at texture filtering than the Radeon HD 6750 1GB. (explain)

GeForce 8800 GT 512MB 33600 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 6750 1GB 26100 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 7500 (29%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon HD 6750 1GB is a better choice, and very much so. (explain)

Radeon HD 6750 1GB 11600 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 8800 GT 512MB 9600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 2000 (21%)

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 maximum amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once 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, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
