GeForce 9600 GSO ASUS 512 vs Radeon R5 M330

Intro

The GeForce 9600 GSO ASUS 512 has a GPU core speed of 550 MHz, and the 512 MB of DDR2 memory is set to run at 500 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also features 96 SPUs, 48 TAUs, and 12 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the Radeon R5 M330, which makes use of a 28 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 1030 MHz. The DDR3 RAM is set to run at a speed of 900 MHz on this particular card. It features 320 SPUs as well as 20 Texture Address Units and 8 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
