GeForce 9600 GSO 768MB vs GeForce GT 220 GDDR3

Intro

The GeForce 9600 GSO 768MB features core clock speeds of 550 MHz on the GPU, and 800 MHz on the 768 MB of GDDR3 RAM. It features 96 SPUs as well as 48 Texture Address Units and 12 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the GeForce GT 220 GDDR3, which makes use of a 40 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 625 MHz. The GDDR3 memory is set to run at a speed of 1012 MHz on this specific model. It features 48 SPUs along with 16 TAUs and 8 Rasterization Operator Units.

Texel Rate

The GeForce 9600 GSO 768MB is quite a bit (approximately 164%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the GeForce GT 220 GDDR3. (explain)

GeForce 9600 GSO 768MB 26400 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GT 220 GDDR3 10000 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 16400 (164%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high screen resolution is important to you, then the GeForce 9600 GSO 768MB is superior to the GeForce GT 220 GDDR3, and very much so. (explain)

GeForce 9600 GSO 768MB 6600 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GT 220 GDDR3 5000 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 1600 (32%)

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 (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, 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 per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the video card can possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on many 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.
