GeForce 9500 GT 1GB GDDR3 vs GeForce GTX 570

Intro

The GeForce 9500 GT 1GB GDDR3 uses a 55 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 550 MHz. The GDDR3 memory is set to run at a frequency of 800 MHz on this card. It features 32 SPUs along with 16 Texture Address Units and 8 Rasterization Operator Units.

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

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce 9500 GT 1GB GDDR3 50 Watts
GeForce GTX 570 219 Watts
Difference: 169 Watts (338%)

Memory Bandwidth

The GeForce GTX 570, in theory, should perform much faster than the GeForce 9500 GT 1GB GDDR3 in general. (explain)

GeForce GTX 570 152000 MB/sec
GeForce 9500 GT 1GB GDDR3 25600 MB/sec
Difference: 126400 (494%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 570 should be quite a bit (more or less 399%) more effective at AF than the GeForce 9500 GT 1GB GDDR3. (explain)

GeForce GTX 570 43920 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 9500 GT 1GB GDDR3 8800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 35120 (399%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 570 will be a lot (approximately 565%) faster with regards to anti-aliasing than the GeForce 9500 GT 1GB GDDR3, and should be able to handle higher screen resolutions without slowing down too much. (explain)

GeForce GTX 570 29280 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 9500 GT 1GB GDDR3 4400 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 24880 (565%)

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 data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most 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 number of Render Output Units by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
