GeForce GTX 480 vs GeForce GTX 650 Ti

Intro

The GeForce GTX 480 has a core clock speed of 700 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 924 MHz. It also makes use of a 384-bit memory bus, and uses a 40 nm design. It features 480 SPUs, 60 TAUs, and 48 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all that to the GeForce GTX 650 Ti, which makes use of a 28 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 928 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a frequency of 1350 MHz on this card. It features 768 SPUs along with 64 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the largest amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card 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 maximum amount of pixels the video card could 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 colour ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.

Which card is the best GTX 460 or GTX 650ti

raoul says:

650 TI. The 480 is good technicaly faster then 650.650 is only optimized for newer systems games and other software/hardware. You must understand the 480 is 3 and a half years old. No way a simple update can keep that thing running like it did back in the days.

The keplar cards are pretty impressive. I have a MSI-650ti with a PNY-9800GTX+ for extra Cuda amd Physx. The little 650ti is impressive. I have gotten wonderfull performance out of it. All the card you need and at $100 bucks
