GeForce GTX 960 vs Geforce GTX 760


The GeForce GTX 960 comes with a core clock speed of 1127 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1750 MHz. It also uses a 128-bit bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It is comprised of 1024 SPUs, 64 TAUs, and 32 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Geforce GTX 760, which features GPU clock speed of 980 MHz, and 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM set to run at 1502 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is comprised of 1152 Stream Processors, 96 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the largest amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 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 anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

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

Gee, unbelievable, 760 is better than 960!
I was going to do some light upgrade, but now I see 960 is pure crap.
Need to get expensive 970 🙁

Aaron says:

a 760 is not better than a 960. Do you honestly think they will release a slower card? I own a 960 and yes it does beat a 760. They are using different architecture and thus most of these stats dont mean anything. (especially the 128bit bus. It's different technology than a 760 and I can assure you it will beat a 760 no problem.

Aaron says:

The 960 is a good mid range card even with the 2gb memory limit. It is made to run games at 1080p.
Do not compare stats here.. but rather check benchmarks.

Aaron says:

The 960 is also not intended to be an option when upgrading from say a 660 or faster. But if you own a 650 or slower than a 960 may be the card for you.

Stefan says:

The 760 is a beast, stats beat the 960 but no doubt it's that much better than the 760. The 960 is 128 bit card and to pay that much for that is a complete waste of money. The new gen cards are overpriced as fuk. The bandwidth of the 760 is much better and if you're looking for an excellent value for money card 760 is the way to go. You'll notice bandwidth when running demanding games at high resolution.

Mark says:

I own a 760 SC and would never replace it with a 960 - no way! I'm considering a 1060 ti or superclock or perhaps the next GPU after that. My 760 superclock has been a superb GPU
