GeForce GTX 550 Ti vs GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB

Intro

The GeForce GTX 550 Ti comes with core speeds of 900 MHz on the GPU, and 1026 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 192 SPUs along with 32 TAUs and 24 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB, which comes with 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 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB 110 Watts
GeForce GTX 550 Ti 116 Watts
Difference: 6 Watts (5%)

Memory Bandwidth

The GeForce GTX 550 Ti should in theory perform just a bit faster than the GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB overall. (explain)

GeForce GTX 550 Ti 98496 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB 86400 MB/sec
Difference: 12096 (14%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB should be a lot (about 106%) more effective at texture filtering than the GeForce GTX 550 Ti. (explain)

GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB 59392 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 550 Ti 28800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 30592 (106%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high screen resolution is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 550 Ti is superior to the GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB, and very much so. (explain)

GeForce GTX 550 Ti 21600 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB 14848 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 6752 (45%)

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 largest amount of data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the video card can possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). 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 get to the maximum fill rate.
