Compare any two graphics cards:
GeForce GTX 660 Ti vs Geforce GTX 760
IntroThe GeForce GTX 660 Ti features a GPU clock speed of 915 MHz, and the 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM is set to run at 1500 MHz through a 192-bit bus. It also features 1344 SPUs, 112 TAUs, and 24 Raster Operation Units.
Compare that to the Geforce GTX 760, which makes use of a 28 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 980 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a speed of 1502 MHz on this particular model. It features 1152 SPUs along with 96 TAUs and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks
Power Consumption (Max TDP)
Theoretically, the Geforce GTX 760 should be quite a bit faster than the GeForce GTX 660 Ti overall. (explain)
Texel RateThe GeForce GTX 660 Ti will be a bit (approximately 9%) better at AF than the Geforce GTX 760. (explain)
Pixel RateThe Geforce GTX 760 should be much (approximately 43%) faster with regards to anti-aliasing than the GeForce GTX 660 Ti, and will be able to handle higher screen resolutions without losing too much performance. (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: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface within a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.
Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the video 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 number of pixels the video card could possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka 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 - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
