GeForce GTX 285 1GB vs GeForce GTX 570

Intro

The GeForce GTX 285 1GB features a core clock speed of 648 MHz and a GDDR3 memory speed of 1242 MHz. It also uses a 512-bit bus, and makes use of a 55 nm design. It features 240 SPUs, 80 TAUs, and 32 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the GeForce GTX 570, which uses a 40 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 732 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM works at a frequency of 950 MHz on this particular model. It features 480 SPUs along with 60 TAUs and 40 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the largest amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. 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 texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, 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 the graphics card can possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
