GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) vs GeForce GTX 650

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) uses a 65 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 650 MHz. The GDDR3 RAM works at a frequency of 970 MHz on this specific model. It features 128 SPUs as well as 64 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the GeForce GTX 650, which has a clock speed of 1058 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1250 MHz. It also makes use of a 128-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It features 384 SPUs, 32 Texture Address Units, and 16 ROPs.

GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) 62080 MB/sec
Difference: 17920 (29%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) will be a lot (about 23%) more effective at AF than the GeForce GTX 650. (explain)

GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) 41600 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 650 33856 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 7744 (23%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 650 is quite a bit (more or less 63%) better at full screen anti-aliasing than the GeForce 8800 GTS (G92), and should be capable of handling higher resolutions better. (explain)

GeForce GTX 650 16928 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 8800 GTS (G92) 10400 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 6528 (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 largest amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, 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 calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels per second.

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