GeForce GTX 570 vs Geforce GTX 760

Intro

The GeForce GTX 570 makes use of a 40 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 732 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a frequency of 950 MHz on this model. It features 480 SPUs as well as 60 Texture Address Units and 40 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specs to the Geforce GTX 760, which makes use of a 28 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 980 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a speed of 1502 MHz on this card. It features 1152 SPUs as well as 96 TAUs and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Geforce GTX 760 170 Watts
GeForce GTX 570 219 Watts
Difference: 49 Watts (29%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Geforce GTX 760 should be 26% quicker than the GeForce GTX 570 overall, due to its higher data rate. (explain)

Geforce GTX 760 192256 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 570 152000 MB/sec
Difference: 40256 (26%)

Texel Rate

The Geforce GTX 760 should be much (approximately 114%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTX 570. (explain)

Geforce GTX 760 94080 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 570 43920 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 50160 (114%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high screen resolution is important to you, then the Geforce GTX 760 is a better choice, not by a very large margin though. (explain)

Geforce GTX 760 31360 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 570 29280 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 2080 (7%)

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: Bandwidth is the largest amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
