GeForce 9600 GSO 512MB vs Radeon HD 6750

Intro

The GeForce 9600 GSO 512MB features a GPU core clock speed of 650 MHz, and the 512 MB of GDDR3 RAM is set to run at 900 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is made up of 96 Stream Processors, 48 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon HD 6750, which makes use of a 40 nm design. AMD has clocked the core frequency at 725 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a frequency of 1000 MHz on this particular card. It features 720 SPUs as well as 36 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon HD 6750 86 Watts
GeForce 9600 GSO 512MB 90 Watts
Difference: 4 Watts (5%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically, the Radeon HD 6750 should be a small bit faster than the GeForce 9600 GSO 512MB overall. (explain)

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

Texel Rate

The GeForce 9600 GSO 512MB should be just a bit (more or less 20%) more effective at AF 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 superior to the GeForce 9600 GSO 512MB, not by a very large margin though. (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: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in one second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics chip can possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the number of colour ROPs 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 is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
