GeForce GT 640 DDR3 vs GeForce GTX 260

Intro

The GeForce GT 640 DDR3 features a GPU core clock speed of 900 MHz, and the 2048 MB of DDR3 RAM runs at 1782 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is comprised of 384 Stream Processors, 32 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all of that to the GeForce GTX 260, which features a clock frequency of 576 MHz and a GDDR3 memory speed of 999 MHz. It also makes use of a 448-bit memory bus, and uses a 65 nm design. It is comprised of 192 SPUs, 64 TAUs, and 28 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the video card could possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
