GeForce 9600 GSO 768MB vs Radeon R7 240

Intro

The GeForce 9600 GSO 768MB comes with a GPU core clock speed of 550 MHz, and the 768 MB of GDDR3 memory runs at 800 MHz through a 192-bit bus. It also is made up of 96 Stream Processors, 48 Texture Address Units, and 12 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon R7 240, which features a GPU core clock speed of 730 MHz, and 2048 MB of DDR3 RAM set to run at 900 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is made up of 320 SPUs, 20 Texture Address Units, and 8 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This number is worked out 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 handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the video card could possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
