GeForce 9600 GSO 1.5GB vs Radeon RX 470 4GB


Intro

The GeForce 9600 GSO 1.5GB features a core clock frequency of 550 MHz and a GDDR3 memory speed of 800 MHz. It also uses a 192-bit bus, and uses a 65 nm design. It is made up of 96 SPUs, 48 TAUs, and 12 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon RX 470 4GB, which makes use of a 14 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 926 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a frequency of 1650 MHz on this particular model. It features 2048 SPUs along with 128 TAUs and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once 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 AA, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in one 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. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the clock speed of the card. 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 is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
