GeForce 9800 GTX vs GeForce GTX 570

Intro

The GeForce 9800 GTX uses a 65 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 675 MHz. The GDDR3 memory is set to run at a frequency of 1100 MHz on this particular model. It features 128 SPUs along with 64 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specs to the GeForce GTX 570, which features core clock speeds of 732 MHz on the GPU, and 950 MHz on the 1280 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 480 SPUs along with 60 TAUs and 40 Rasterization Operator Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once 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 anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better 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 video card could possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
