GeForce 9600 GSO 768MB vs GeForce RTX 2080

Intro

The GeForce 9600 GSO 768MB uses a 65 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 550 MHz. The GDDR3 RAM runs at a frequency of 800 MHz on this specific model. It features 96 SPUs as well as 48 Texture Address Units and 12 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the GeForce RTX 2080, which comes with a core clock frequency of 1515 MHz and a GDDR6 memory speed of 14 MHz. It also uses a 256-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 12 nm design. It is comprised of 2944 SPUs, 184 TAUs, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

GeForce 9600 GSO 768MB 84 Watts
GeForce RTX 2080 215 Watts
Difference: 131 Watts (156%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the GeForce RTX 2080 should be 1095% quicker than the GeForce 9600 GSO 768MB overall, due to its higher bandwidth. (explain)

GeForce RTX 2080 458752 MB/sec
GeForce 9600 GSO 768MB 38400 MB/sec
Difference: 420352 (1095%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce RTX 2080 is a lot (about 956%) better at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce 9600 GSO 768MB. (explain)

GeForce RTX 2080 278760 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 9600 GSO 768MB 26400 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 252360 (956%)

Pixel Rate

If running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce RTX 2080 is a better choice, and very much so. (explain)

GeForce RTX 2080 96960 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 9600 GSO 768MB 6600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 90360 (1369%)

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: Bandwidth is the max amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface within a second. It's calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card could possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
