GeForce 9600 GSO 512MB vs Radeon HD 4750

Intro

The GeForce 9600 GSO 512MB has a clock frequency of 650 MHz and a GDDR3 memory frequency of 900 MHz. It also features a 256-bit memory bus, and uses a 65/55 nm design. It is made up of 96 SPUs, 48 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon HD 4750, which comes with GPU clock speed of 730 MHz, and 512 MB of GDDR5 RAM set to run at 800 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is comprised of 640(128x5) SPUs, 32 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

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

Memory Bandwidth

The GeForce 9600 GSO 512MB should in theory perform a 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 a lot (more or less 34%) more effective at 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 high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon HD 4750 is the winner, though only just barely. (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 max amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface within a second. It is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the video card can possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
