GeForce 9600 GSO 512MB vs Radeon HD 6750

Intro

The GeForce 9600 GSO 512MB makes use of a 65/55 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 650 MHz. The GDDR3 memory works at a frequency of 900 MHz on this particular model. It features 96 SPUs as well as 48 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon HD 6750, which comes with a core clock frequency of 725 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1000 MHz. It also makes use of a 128-bit bus, and makes use of a 40 nm design. It features 720 SPUs, 36 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

The Radeon HD 6750 should in theory be a small bit faster than the GeForce 9600 GSO 512MB in general. (explain)

Radeon HD 6750 64000 MB/sec
GeForce 9600 GSO 512MB 57600 MB/sec
Difference: 6400 (11%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 9600 GSO 512MB will be a small bit (approximately 20%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the Radeon HD 6750. (explain)

GeForce 9600 GSO 512MB 31200 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 6750 26100 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 5100 (20%)

Pixel Rate

If running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon HD 6750 is the winner, but not by far. (explain)

Radeon HD 6750 11600 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 9600 GSO 512MB 10400 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 1200 (12%)

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 largest amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface within a second. It is calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the video card will be at handling 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 the video card could possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate also depends on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
