GeForce 9600 GT 512MB vs Radeon HD 6770 1GB

Intro

The GeForce 9600 GT 512MB has core clock speeds of 650 MHz on the GPU, and 900 MHz on the 512 MB of GDDR3 RAM. It features 64 SPUs as well as 32 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon HD 6770 1GB, which features a GPU core clock speed of 900 MHz, and 1024 MB of GDDR5 memory set to run at 1050 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is comprised of 800 Stream Processors, 40 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce 9600 GT 512MB 95 Watts
Radeon HD 6770 1GB 108 Watts
Difference: 13 Watts (14%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Radeon HD 6770 1GB should be 17% quicker than the GeForce 9600 GT 512MB overall, due to its greater bandwidth. (explain)

Radeon HD 6770 1GB 67200 MB/sec
GeForce 9600 GT 512MB 57600 MB/sec
Difference: 9600 (17%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon HD 6770 1GB should be quite a bit (more or less 73%) better at texture filtering than the GeForce 9600 GT 512MB. (explain)

Radeon HD 6770 1GB 36000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 9600 GT 512MB 20800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 15200 (73%)

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon HD 6770 1GB is the winner, and very much so. (explain)

Radeon HD 6770 1GB 14400 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 9600 GT 512MB 10400 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 4000 (38%)

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 transferred over the external memory interface within a second. It's calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once 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, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the graphics 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 number of pixels the video card can possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
