GeForce GTX 285 2GB vs GeForce GTX 560

Intro

The GeForce GTX 285 2GB comes with a GPU core clock speed of 648 MHz, and the 2048 MB of GDDR3 RAM is set to run at 1242 MHz through a 512-bit bus. It also features 240 Stream Processors, 80 TAUs, and 32 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the GeForce GTX 560, which comes with a GPU core clock speed of 810 MHz, and 1024 MB of GDDR5 RAM set to run at 1001 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is comprised of 336 Stream Processors, 56 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, 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 the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
