GeForce 9600 GT 512MB vs GeForce GTS 450 1GB

Intro

The GeForce 9600 GT 512MB comes with 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 64 SPUs, 32 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specs to the GeForce GTS 450 1GB, which features core clock speeds of 783 MHz on the GPU, and 902 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 192 SPUs as well as 32 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce 9600 GT 512MB 95 Watts
GeForce GTS 450 1GB 106 Watts
Difference: 11 Watts (12%)

Memory Bandwidth

The GeForce GTS 450 1GB, in theory, should perform a small bit faster than the GeForce 9600 GT 512MB in general. (explain)

GeForce GTS 450 1GB 57728 MB/sec
GeForce 9600 GT 512MB 57600 MB/sec
Difference: 128 (0%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTS 450 1GB should be just a bit (about 20%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce 9600 GT 512MB. (explain)

GeForce GTS 450 1GB 25056 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 9600 GT 512MB 20800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 4256 (20%)

Pixel Rate

If using high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce GTS 450 1GB is superior to the GeForce 9600 GT 512MB, but not by far. (explain)

GeForce GTS 450 1GB 12528 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 9600 GT 512MB 10400 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 2128 (20%)

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 maximum amount of data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface within a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR type memory, 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 anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This is calculated by multiplying the total texture units by the core 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 processed in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card can possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
