GeForce 9800 GT 512MB vs GeForce GTX 750


The GeForce 9800 GT 512MB makes use of a 65/55 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 600 MHz. The GDDR3 RAM is set to run at a speed of 900 MHz on this specific card. It features 112 SPUs as well as 56 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the GeForce GTX 750, which comes with a clock speed of 1020 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1250 MHz. It also features a 128-bit memory bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It is comprised of 512 SPUs, 32 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

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

Texel Rate

The GeForce 9800 GT 512MB will be a little bit (about 3%) more effective at 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

If using high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 750 is the winner, by far. (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: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in a second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the graphics 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 maximum number of pixels the video card could possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability 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.
