GeForce GT 440 1.5GB vs Radeon HD 4670 1GB

Intro

The GeForce GT 440 1.5GB has a GPU core speed of 594 MHz, and the 1536 MB of GDDR3 memory is set to run at 900 MHz through a 192-bit bus. It also is comprised of 144 Stream Processors, 24 Texture Address Units, and 24 ROPs.

Compare that to the Radeon HD 4670 1GB, which has a clock speed of 750 MHz and a GDDR4/GDDR3/DDR3/DDR2 memory frequency of 1100 MHz. It also uses a 128-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 55 nm design. It features 320(64x5) SPUs, 32 Texture Address Units, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the max amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface within a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics card can possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
