GeForce GTX 570 vs GeForce GTX 650 Ti

Intro

The GeForce GTX 570 features clock speeds of 732 MHz on the GPU, and 950 MHz on the 1280 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 480 SPUs along with 60 Texture Address Units and 40 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all of that to the GeForce GTX 650 Ti, which has clock speeds of 928 MHz on the GPU, and 1350 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 768 SPUs as well as 64 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the graphics 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 most pixels the video card can possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate also depends on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
