GeForce 9600 GT 1GB vs GeForce GTX 560 Ti

Intro

The GeForce 9600 GT 1GB has a GPU core clock speed of 650 MHz, and the 1024 MB of GDDR3 memory runs at 900 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is made up of 64 SPUs, 32 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the GeForce GTX 560 Ti, which comes with a clock speed of 822 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1002 MHz. It also uses a 256-bit bus, and makes use of a 40 nm design. It features 384 SPUs, 64 TAUs, and 32 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce 9600 GT 1GB 95 Watts
GeForce GTX 560 Ti 170 Watts
Difference: 75 Watts (79%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the GeForce GTX 560 Ti is 123% quicker than the GeForce 9600 GT 1GB in general, due to its greater data rate. (explain)

GeForce GTX 560 Ti 128256 MB/sec
GeForce 9600 GT 1GB 57600 MB/sec
Difference: 70656 (123%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 560 Ti should be a lot (more or less 153%) better at AF than the GeForce 9600 GT 1GB. (explain)

GeForce GTX 560 Ti 52608 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 9600 GT 1GB 20800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 31808 (153%)

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 560 Ti is superior to the GeForce 9600 GT 1GB, and very much so. (explain)

GeForce GTX 560 Ti 26304 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 9600 GT 1GB 10400 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 15904 (153%)

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 information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, 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 graphics card can possibly write to its 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 core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
