Compare any two graphics cards:
GeForce GT 640 DDR3 vs GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB
IntroThe GeForce GT 640 DDR3 features a clock speed of 900 MHz and a DDR3 memory frequency of 1782 MHz. It also uses a 128-bit bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It features 384 SPUs, 32 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.
Compare those specifications to the GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB, which has core clock speeds of 928 MHz on the GPU, and 1350 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 768 SPUs along with 64 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks
Power Consumption (Max TDP)
Theoretically speaking, the GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB should be 52% quicker than the GeForce GT 640 DDR3 in general, because of its greater data rate. (explain)
Texel RateThe GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB will be a lot (approximately 106%) faster with regards to AF than the GeForce GT 640 DDR3. (explain)
Pixel RateIf running with a high resolution is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB is superior to the GeForce GT 640 DDR3, though only just barely. (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 max amount of data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface within a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.
Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This is calculated by multiplying the total texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed per second.
Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card could possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
