GeForce 9800 GT 512MB vs GeForce GTX 750


Intro

The GeForce 9800 GT 512MB uses a 65/55 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 600 MHz. The GDDR3 memory works at a frequency of 900 MHz on this model. It features 112 SPUs as well as 56 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specifications to the GeForce GTX 750, which features GPU core speed of 1020 MHz, and 1024 MB of GDDR5 memory set to run at 1250 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is made up of 512 Stream Processors, 32 Texture Address Units, and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GTX 750 55 Watts
GeForce 9800 GT 512MB 105 Watts
Difference: 50 Watts (91%)

Memory Bandwidth

Performance-wise, the GeForce GTX 750 should in theory be a lot better than the GeForce 9800 GT 512MB in general. (explain)

GeForce GTX 750 80000 MB/sec
GeForce 9800 GT 512MB 57600 MB/sec
Difference: 22400 (39%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 9800 GT 512MB should be a little bit (approximately 3%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTX 750. (explain)

GeForce 9800 GT 512MB 33600 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 750 32640 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 960 (3%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 750 should be much (approximately 70%) more effective at FSAA than the GeForce 9800 GT 512MB, and also capable of handling higher screen resolutions without slowing down too much. (explain)

GeForce GTX 750 16320 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 9800 GT 512MB 9600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 6720 (70%)

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 max amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics chip can possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the clock 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 quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum 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.
