GeForce GTX 550 Ti vs GeForce GTX 750 Ti

Intro

The GeForce GTX 550 Ti uses a 40 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 900 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a speed of 1026 MHz on this particular card. It features 192 SPUs along with 32 TAUs and 24 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specs to the GeForce GTX 750 Ti, which uses a 28 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 1020 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM is set to run at a speed of 1350 MHz on this specific model. It features 640 SPUs as well as 40 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, the faster 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 calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the core speed of the card. 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 output rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.

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
