GeForce 9800 GT 512MB vs Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 1GB

Intro

The GeForce 9800 GT 512MB comes with a clock speed of 600 MHz and a GDDR3 memory frequency of 900 MHz. It also uses a 256-bit bus, and uses a 65/55 nm design. It is made up of 112 SPUs, 56 Texture Address Units, and 16 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 1GB, which has GPU clock speed of 650 MHz, and 1024 MB of GDDR3 RAM set to run at 900 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is made up of 480 Stream Processors, 24 Texture Address Units, and 8 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's 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 applied per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card 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 in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics card can possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
