GeForce 9600 GT 1GB vs Radeon HD 6750

Intro

The GeForce 9600 GT 1GB makes use of a 65/55 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 650 MHz. The GDDR3 memory is set to run at a speed of 900 MHz on this model. It features 64 SPUs as well as 32 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon HD 6750, which has GPU core speed of 725 MHz, and 512 MB of GDDR5 RAM set to run at 1000 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is comprised of 720 Stream Processors, 36 Texture Address Units, and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Radeon HD 6750 86 Watts
GeForce 9600 GT 1GB 95 Watts
Difference: 9 Watts (10%)

Memory Bandwidth

Performance-wise, the Radeon HD 6750 should theoretically be a small bit superior to the GeForce 9600 GT 1GB in general. (explain)

Radeon HD 6750 64000 MB/sec
GeForce 9600 GT 1GB 57600 MB/sec
Difference: 6400 (11%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon HD 6750 will be much (more or less 25%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the GeForce 9600 GT 1GB. (explain)

Radeon HD 6750 26100 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 9600 GT 1GB 20800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 5300 (25%)

Pixel Rate

If using high levels of AA is important to you, then the Radeon HD 6750 is the winner, not by a very large margin though. (explain)

Radeon HD 6750 11600 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 9600 GT 1GB 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 max amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface within a second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics chip could possibly write to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core speed of the card. 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 output rate is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
