GeForce 9600 GSO 512MB vs Radeon HD 4750

Intro

The GeForce 9600 GSO 512MB uses a 65/55 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 650 MHz. The GDDR3 RAM runs at a frequency of 900 MHz on this card. It features 96 SPUs along with 48 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon HD 4750, which comes with a core clock speed of 730 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 800 MHz. It also features a 128-bit bus, and makes use of a 40 nm design. It features 640(128x5) SPUs, 32 Texture Address Units, and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon HD 4750 75 Watts
GeForce 9600 GSO 512MB 90 Watts
Difference: 15 Watts (20%)

Memory Bandwidth

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

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

Texel Rate

The GeForce 9600 GSO 512MB should be quite a bit (more or less 34%) faster with regards to AF than the Radeon HD 4750. (explain)

GeForce 9600 GSO 512MB 31200 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 4750 23360 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 7840 (34%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high resolution is important to you, then the Radeon HD 4750 is a better choice, but not by far. (explain)

Radeon HD 4750 11680 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 9600 GSO 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: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in one second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core 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 processed per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card can possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the card's 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 output rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
