GeForce 9500 GT 1GB GDDR3 vs Radeon R7 370 4G

Intro

The GeForce 9500 GT 1GB GDDR3 makes use of a 55 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 550 MHz. The GDDR3 memory runs at a frequency of 800 MHz on this card. It features 32 SPUs along with 16 Texture Address Units and 8 ROPs.

Compare that to the Radeon R7 370 4G, which makes use of a 28 nm design. AMD has clocked the core speed at 975 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a speed of 1400 MHz on this card. It features 1024 SPUs along with 64 TAUs and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the largest amount of information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in a second. It is worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate 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 filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
