GeForce 9600 GSO 768MB vs Radeon RX 470 4GB


Intro

The GeForce 9600 GSO 768MB has a core clock speed 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 all that to the Radeon RX 470 4GB, which has GPU core speed of 926 MHz, and 4096 MB of GDDR5 RAM set to run at 1650 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is comprised of 2048 SPUs, 128 Texture Address Units, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce 9600 GSO 768MB 84 Watts
Radeon RX 470 4GB 120 Watts
Difference: 36 Watts (43%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon RX 470 4GB is 450% faster than the GeForce 9600 GSO 768MB in general, because of its higher data rate. (explain)

Radeon RX 470 4GB 211200 MB/sec
GeForce 9600 GSO 768MB 38400 MB/sec
Difference: 172800 (450%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon RX 470 4GB is quite a bit (about 349%) better at AF than the GeForce 9600 GSO 768MB. (explain)

Radeon RX 470 4GB 118528 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 9600 GSO 768MB 26400 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 92128 (349%)

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon RX 470 4GB is superior to the GeForce 9600 GSO 768MB, and very much so. (explain)

Radeon RX 470 4GB 29632 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 9600 GSO 768MB 6600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 23032 (349%)

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 (measured in MB per second) that can be transferred past 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 type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once 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 anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This is worked out 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 texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly write to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
