GeForce 9500 GT 1GB GDDR3 vs Radeon RX Vega 56

Intro

The GeForce 9500 GT 1GB GDDR3 comes with core speeds of 550 MHz on the GPU, and 800 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR3 memory. It features 32 SPUs as well as 16 Texture Address Units and 8 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon RX Vega 56, which comes with GPU core speed of 1156 MHz, and 8192 MB of HBM2 memory set to run at 1600 MHz through a 2048-bit bus. It also is made up of 3584 Stream Processors, 224 Texture Address Units, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the 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 texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
