GeForce 9600 GT 1GB vs Radeon HD 6670 (OEM)

Intro

The GeForce 9600 GT 1GB features a GPU clock speed of 650 MHz, and the 1024 MB of GDDR3 RAM runs at 900 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is made up of 64 SPUs, 32 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all of that to the Radeon HD 6670 (OEM), which has a GPU core clock speed of 800 MHz, and 512 MB of GDDR5 memory running at 1000 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is comprised of 480 SPUs, 24 TAUs, and 8 ROPs.

GeForce 9600 GT 1GB 57600 MB/sec
Difference: 6400 (11%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 9600 GT 1GB should be a small bit (approximately 8%) better at texture filtering than the Radeon HD 6670 (OEM). (explain)

GeForce 9600 GT 1GB 20800 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 6670 (OEM) 19200 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 1600 (8%)

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce 9600 GT 1GB is the winner, and very much so. (explain)

GeForce 9600 GT 1GB 10400 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 6670 (OEM) 6400 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 4000 (63%)

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: Bandwidth is the max amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface within a second. It's calculated by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
