GeForce GTX 260 vs GeForce GTX 260 Core 216

Intro

The GeForce GTX 260 makes use of a 65 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 576 MHz. The GDDR3 memory is set to run at a speed of 999 MHz on this specific model. It features 192 SPUs as well as 64 Texture Address Units and 28 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specs to the GeForce GTX 260 Core 216, which uses a 65 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 576 MHz. The GDDR3 RAM runs at a speed of 999 MHz on this card. It features 216 SPUs along with 72 Texture Address Units and 28 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GTX 260 182 Watts
GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 202 Watts
Difference: 20 Watts (11%)

Memory Bandwidth

Both cards have exactly the same memory bandwidth, so in theory they should perform exactly the same. (explain)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 is a little bit (approximately 13%) better at AF than the GeForce GTX 260. (explain)

GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 41472 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 260 36864 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 4608 (13%)

Pixel Rate

Both cards have exactly the same pixel rate, so in theory they should perform equally good at at FSAA, and be able to handle the same resolutions. (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.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the largest amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number 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 drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
