GeForce 9500 GT 1GB GDDR3 vs GeForce GTX 560 Ti

Intro

The GeForce 9500 GT 1GB GDDR3 has a core clock speed of 550 MHz and a GDDR3 memory speed of 800 MHz. It also features a 128-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 55 nm design. It features 32 SPUs, 16 Texture Address Units, and 8 ROPs.

Compare that to the GeForce GTX 560 Ti, which makes use of a 40 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 822 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM runs at a speed of 1002 MHz on this specific card. It features 384 SPUs as well as 64 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the max amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
