GeForce 9500 GT DDR2 vs GeForce GTX 650 Ti


The GeForce 9500 GT DDR2 comes with a clock frequency of 550 MHz and a DDR2 memory frequency of 500 MHz. It also features a 128-bit bus, and makes use of a 65 nm design. It is made up of 32 SPUs, 16 Texture Address Units, and 8 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the GeForce GTX 650 Ti, which features a clock speed of 928 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1350 MHz. It also uses a 128-bit memory bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It is made up of 768 SPUs, 64 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics card can possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill 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 reach the max fill rate.
