GeForce 9600 GT 512MB vs GeForce GTX 275

Intro

The GeForce 9600 GT 512MB uses a 65/55 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 650 MHz. The GDDR3 RAM is set to run at a frequency of 900 MHz on this particular model. It features 64 SPUs as well as 32 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare that to the GeForce GTX 275, which has GPU core speed of 633 MHz, and 896 MB of GDDR3 memory running at 1134 MHz through a 448-bit bus. It also is comprised of 240 Stream Processors, 80 TAUs, and 28 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (counted in MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card could possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate 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 filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
