GeForce 9600 GSO 384MB vs GeForce GTX 1050

Intro

The GeForce 9600 GSO 384MB makes use of a 65 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 550 MHz. The GDDR3 memory works at a speed of 800 MHz on this specific model. It features 96 SPUs along with 48 Texture Address Units and 12 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the GeForce GTX 1050, which comes with a clock speed of 1354 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1750 MHz. It also makes use of a 128-bit bus, and uses a 14 nm design. It features 640 SPUs, 40 TAUs, and 32 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GTX 1050 75 Watts
GeForce 9600 GSO 384MB 84 Watts
Difference: 9 Watts (12%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically, the GeForce GTX 1050 should perform a lot faster than the GeForce 9600 GSO 384MB overall. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 114688 MB/sec
GeForce 9600 GSO 384MB 38400 MB/sec
Difference: 76288 (199%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1050 will be quite a bit (more or less 105%) more effective at AF than the GeForce 9600 GSO 384MB. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 54160 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 9600 GSO 384MB 26400 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 27760 (105%)

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 1050 is a better choice, and very much so. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 43328 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 9600 GSO 384MB 6600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 36728 (556%)

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 (counted in MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface within a second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
