GeForce 9600 GSO 768MB vs GeForce GT 220 GDDR3

Intro

The GeForce 9600 GSO 768MB has a GPU clock speed of 550 MHz, and the 768 MB of GDDR3 RAM is set to run at 800 MHz through a 192-bit bus. It also features 96 SPUs, 48 TAUs, and 12 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the GeForce GT 220 GDDR3, which comes with clock speeds of 625 MHz on the GPU, and 1012 MHz on the 512 MB of GDDR3 RAM. It features 48 SPUs along with 16 TAUs and 8 Rasterization Operator Units.

Theoretically speaking, the GeForce 9600 GSO 768MB will be 19% faster than the GeForce GT 220 GDDR3 in general, due to its greater bandwidth. (explain)

GeForce 9600 GSO 768MB 38400 MB/sec
GeForce GT 220 GDDR3 32384 MB/sec
Difference: 6016 (19%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 9600 GSO 768MB should be a lot (about 164%) more effective at 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

The GeForce 9600 GSO 768MB is a lot (more or less 32%) more effective at FSAA than the GeForce GT 220 GDDR3, and should be able to handle higher resolutions while still performing well. (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: Bandwidth is the largest amount of data (counted in MB per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in a second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
