GeForce 8800 GTX vs GeForce GTX 650 Ti

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GTX features a GPU core clock speed of 575 MHz, and the 768 MB of GDDR3 RAM runs at 900 MHz through a 384-bit bus. It also features 128 SPUs, 64 Texture Address Units, and 24 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specifications to the GeForce GTX 650 Ti, which uses a 28 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 928 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a speed of 1350 MHz on this specific card. It features 768 SPUs as well as 64 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GTX 650 Ti 110 Watts
GeForce 8800 GTX 155 Watts
Difference: 45 Watts (41%)

Memory Bandwidth

Both cards have exactly the same memory bandwidth, so in theory they should perform the same. (explain)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 650 Ti will be much (more or less 61%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the GeForce 8800 GTX. (explain)

GeForce GTX 650 Ti 59392 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 8800 GTX 36800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 22592 (61%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high resolution is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 650 Ti is the winner, but only just. (explain)

GeForce GTX 650 Ti 14848 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 8800 GTX 13800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 1048 (8%)

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: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the graphics card can possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core clock speed. 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 fill rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
