GeForce GT 130 vs GeForce GTX 580

Intro

The GeForce GT 130 features clock speeds of 500 MHz on the GPU, and 250 MHz on the 768 MB of DDR2 RAM. It features 48 SPUs as well as 24 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Compare all that to the GeForce GTX 580, which makes use of a 40 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 772 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a frequency of 1002 MHz on this specific card. It features 512 SPUs as well as 64 Texture Address Units and 48 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses 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 texture map elements (texels) that are processed 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 better this number, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the video card can possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output 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 get to the maximum fill rate.
