GeForce 9500 GT 1GB GDDR3 vs Radeon RX Vega 56

Intro

The GeForce 9500 GT 1GB GDDR3 features a clock frequency of 550 MHz and a GDDR3 memory speed of 800 MHz. It also features a 128-bit bus, and uses a 55 nm design. It features 32 SPUs, 16 Texture Address Units, and 8 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon RX Vega 56, which features a clock frequency of 1156 MHz and a HBM2 memory frequency of 1600 MHz. It also features a 2048-bit bus, and uses a 14 nm design. It is comprised of 3584 SPUs, 224 TAUs, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If 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 high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
