Compare any two graphics cards:
GeForce GTX 660 Ti vs Geforce GTX 760
IntroThe GeForce GTX 660 Ti comes with a GPU core speed of 915 MHz, and the 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory runs at 1500 MHz through a 192-bit bus. It also features 1344 Stream Processors, 112 TAUs, and 24 ROPs.
Compare those specs to the Geforce GTX 760, which features clock speeds of 980 MHz on the GPU, and 1502 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 1152 SPUs along with 96 Texture Address Units and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks
Power Consumption (Max TDP)
The Geforce GTX 760, in theory, should perform quite a bit faster than the GeForce GTX 660 Ti in general. (explain)
Texel RateThe GeForce GTX 660 Ti should be a little bit (more or less 9%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the Geforce GTX 760. (explain)
Pixel RateThe Geforce GTX 760 will be a lot (more or less 43%) faster with regards to AA than the GeForce GTX 660 Ti, and should be capable of handling higher resolutions while still performing well. (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.
Please note that the price comparisons are based on search keywords - sometimes it might show cards with very similar names that are not exactly the same as the one chosen in the comparison. We do try to filter out the wrong results as best we can, though.
Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the largest amount of data (counted in MB per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in one second. The number is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This figure is worked out 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 applied per second.
Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card can possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the card's 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 is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
