GeForce 9600 GT 1GB vs Radeon R7 360

Intro

The GeForce 9600 GT 1GB makes use of a 65/55 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 650 MHz. The GDDR3 RAM is set to run at a speed of 900 MHz on this card. It features 64 SPUs as well as 32 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all of that to the Radeon R7 360, which has a clock speed of 1050 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1625 MHz. It also features a 128-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It features 768 SPUs, 48 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the largest amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the video card can possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
