GeForce 9600 GT 1GB vs Radeon HD 5670

Intro

The GeForce 9600 GT 1GB uses a 65/55 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 650 MHz. The GDDR3 memory works at a speed of 900 MHz on this particular model. It features 64 SPUs as well as 32 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon HD 5670, which has core speeds of 775 MHz on the GPU, and 1000 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 400(80x5) SPUs along with 20 TAUs and 8 ROPs.

GeForce 9600 GT 1GB 57600 MB/sec
Difference: 6400 (11%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 9600 GT 1GB is quite a bit (about 34%) better at texture filtering than the Radeon HD 5670. (explain)

GeForce 9600 GT 1GB 20800 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 5670 15500 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 5300 (34%)

Pixel Rate

If running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce 9600 GT 1GB is the winner, and very much so. (explain)

GeForce 9600 GT 1GB 10400 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 5670 6200 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 4200 (68%)

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 maximum amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
