Compare any two graphics cards:
GeForce GTX 650 Ti vs GeForce GTX 660 Ti
IntroThe GeForce GTX 650 Ti uses a 28 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 928 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a frequency of 1350 MHz on this particular card. It features 768 SPUs along with 64 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.
Compare those specifications to the GeForce GTX 660 Ti, which comes with GPU core speed of 915 MHz, and 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory running at 1500 MHz through a 192-bit bus. It also is comprised of 1344 Stream Processors, 112 Texture Address Units, and 24 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks
Power Consumption (Max TDP)
In theory, the GeForce GTX 660 Ti should perform much faster than the GeForce GTX 650 Ti in general. (explain)
Texel RateThe GeForce GTX 660 Ti will be a lot (more or less 73%) more effective at AF than the GeForce GTX 650 Ti. (explain)
Pixel RateIf running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 660 Ti is a better choice, and very much so. (explain)
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.
Price ComparisonPlease note that the price comparisons are based on search keywords, and might not be the exact same card listed on this page. We have no control over the accuracy of their search results.
Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in one second. The number is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in a second.
Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card can possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on lots of 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.
