GeForce 9600 GT 1GB vs GeForce GTX 560 Ti

Intro

The GeForce 9600 GT 1GB comes with core clock speeds of 650 MHz on the GPU, and 900 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR3 RAM. It features 64 SPUs as well as 32 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Compare all that to the GeForce GTX 560 Ti, which has a core clock speed of 822 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1002 MHz. It also features a 256-bit bus, and uses a 40 nm design. It is comprised of 384 SPUs, 64 Texture Address Units, 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

Theoretically speaking, the GeForce GTX 560 Ti should be quite a bit faster than the GeForce 9600 GT 1GB in general. (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%) more effective at anisotropic filtering 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 using high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 560 Ti is a better choice, by a large margin. (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 maximum amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

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