GeForce 9800 GT 512MB vs GeForce GTX 750


Intro

The GeForce 9800 GT 512MB has a core clock speed of 600 MHz and a GDDR3 memory frequency of 900 MHz. It also makes use of a 256-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 65/55 nm design. It is comprised of 112 SPUs, 56 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the GeForce GTX 750, which uses a 28 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 1020 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a frequency of 1250 MHz on this specific model. It features 512 SPUs along with 32 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the max amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the faster 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 can be applied in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the graphics card can possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines 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 rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.

i am going to upgrade from the 9800 GT 512M from XFX (their wierd version that somehow runs without a power connector yet its the regular version rather than the green edition) to an EVGA GTX 750 FTW edition w/ACX cooling. All I can find about it other than newegg is reviews and unboxing etc. for the 750 ti version. maybe since its exclusive to newegg and requires more than zero effort to find, noone else has bought it yet? its on sale for $99.99, so that's why I got it instead of one of the more "regular" GTX 750's (the shorter ones w/out the 6-pin input). Will make unboxing videoas soon as it arrives on the 23rd of the month/year this comment was typed in (December 2014). I seriously hope it includes a molex to 6-pin adapter, my POS dell PSU only has a single 4-pin connector.
