GeForce 9600 GSO 768MB vs Radeon RX 5600

Intro

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

Compare all that to the Radeon RX 5600, which comes with a clock frequency of 1375 MHz and a GDDR6 memory frequency of 12000 MHz. It also uses a 192-bit bus, and uses a 7 nm design. It is made up of 2048 SPUs, 128 TAUs, and 64 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card could possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka 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 ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
