GeForce 9600 GT 512MB vs Radeon HD 4750

Intro

The GeForce 9600 GT 512MB features a GPU core speed of 650 MHz, and the 512 MB of GDDR3 memory is set to run at 900 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is comprised of 64 Stream Processors, 32 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon HD 4750, which features a clock speed of 730 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 800 MHz. It also uses a 128-bit bus, and makes use of a 40 nm design. It is comprised of 640(128x5) SPUs, 32 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Radeon HD 4750 75 Watts
GeForce 9600 GT 512MB 95 Watts
Difference: 20 Watts (27%)

Memory Bandwidth

The GeForce 9600 GT 512MB should in theory perform a bit faster than the Radeon HD 4750 in general. (explain)

GeForce 9600 GT 512MB 57600 MB/sec
Radeon HD 4750 51200 MB/sec
Difference: 6400 (13%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon HD 4750 is a little bit (approximately 12%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce 9600 GT 512MB. (explain)

Radeon HD 4750 23360 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 9600 GT 512MB 20800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 2560 (12%)

Pixel Rate

If using high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon HD 4750 is a better choice, though only just barely. (explain)

Radeon HD 4750 11680 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 9600 GT 512MB 10400 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 1280 (12%)

Please note that the above 'benchmarks' are all just theoretical - the results were calculated based on the card's specifications, and real-world performance may (and probably will) vary at least a bit.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the max amount of data (counted in MB per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in one second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better 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 texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed per second.

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