GeForce GTX 550 Ti vs GeForce GTX 750 Ti


The GeForce GTX 550 Ti uses a 40 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 900 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM is set to run at a speed of 1026 MHz on this particular card. It features 192 SPUs as well as 32 Texture Address Units and 24 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare that to the GeForce GTX 750 Ti, which has core clock speeds of 1020 MHz on the GPU, and 1350 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 640 SPUs as well as 40 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

GeForce GTX 550 Ti 98496 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 750 Ti 86400 MB/sec
Difference: 12096 (14%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 750 Ti should be quite a bit (approximately 42%) better at texture filtering than the GeForce GTX 550 Ti. (explain)

GeForce GTX 750 Ti 40800 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 550 Ti 28800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 12000 (42%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high resolution is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 550 Ti is superior to the GeForce GTX 750 Ti, and very much so. (explain)

GeForce GTX 550 Ti 21600 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 750 Ti 16320 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 5280 (32%)

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 largest amount of information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in a second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. 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 amount of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card could possibly write to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.

flow says:

This comparison is rather misleading as the 750's real-life performance is much better than the 550. Weird.

Gabriel says:

I thought so too, even the price of gtx 750 TI is higher, I really don't get it

Matheus says:

This compraison is a quite wrong.
750ti is really faster than 550ti.

Matheus says:

750ti is really faster than 550ti.

Мачо says:

Сижу на 550Ti и пока не вижу смысла переходить с этого ценового диапазона.

Alex says:

I want to believe, the 750 is equal to 550.

Gary To says:

750ti is almost double the 550ti's performance

Redx says:

LoL, its quite wrong.. the gtx750Ti is faster than gtx550ti

Spike says:

would you believe at this time amazon and other sites want 500$ for a 550 ti and only 150$ or so for the 750? must be an ANTIQUE in their eyes... that's just sad...

Razvan says:

Yes, 550ti is better than 750 ti in some cases! I had MSI Geforce N550GTX-TI Cyclone II 1GD5/OC and
ASUS GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB DDR5 128-bit.......its weird but its true.

truthspeak says:

the evidence speaks for its self the 550 ti is the best gpu here
