GeForce 9600 GSO 768MB vs GeForce GTX 950M

Intro

The GeForce 9600 GSO 768MB comes with a core clock frequency of 550 MHz and a GDDR3 memory speed of 800 MHz. It also makes use of a 192-bit bus, and uses a 65 nm design. It features 96 SPUs, 48 Texture Address Units, and 12 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the GeForce GTX 950M, which makes use of a 28 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 914 MHz. The DDR3 memory works at a speed of 1000 MHz on this model. It features 640 SPUs as well as 40 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of data (counted in MB per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface within a second. It's calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen 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 of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
