GeForce 9600 GT 1GB vs GeForce GTX 650


Intro

The GeForce 9600 GT 1GB comes with clock speeds of 650 MHz on the GPU, and 900 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR3 memory. It features 64 SPUs along with 32 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

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

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GTX 650 64 Watts
GeForce 9600 GT 1GB 95 Watts
Difference: 31 Watts (48%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the GeForce GTX 650 should be 39% quicker than the GeForce 9600 GT 1GB in general, due to its greater data rate. (explain)

GeForce GTX 650 80000 MB/sec
GeForce 9600 GT 1GB 57600 MB/sec
Difference: 22400 (39%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 650 is a lot (approximately 63%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce 9600 GT 1GB. (explain)

GeForce GTX 650 33856 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 9600 GT 1GB 20800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 13056 (63%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 650 is quite a bit (about 63%) better at AA than the GeForce 9600 GT 1GB, and should be capable of handling higher screen resolutions more effectively. (explain)

GeForce GTX 650 16928 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 9600 GT 1GB 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 maximum amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in one second. The number is calculated by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the 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 in one second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the graphics 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 maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of Render Output Units 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 rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
