GeForce GTX 550 Ti vs GeForce GTX 560 Ti

Intro

The GeForce GTX 550 Ti has a clock speed of 900 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1026 MHz. It also features a 192-bit memory bus, and uses a 40 nm design. It is made up of 192 SPUs, 32 TAUs, and 24 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specifications to the GeForce GTX 560 Ti, which has core speeds of 822 MHz on the GPU, and 1002 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 384 SPUs as well as 64 Texture Address Units and 32 ROPs.

GeForce GTX 550 Ti 98496 MB/sec
Difference: 29760 (30%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 560 Ti is much (more or less 83%) better at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTX 550 Ti. (explain)

GeForce GTX 560 Ti 52608 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 550 Ti 28800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 23808 (83%)

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 560 Ti is superior to the GeForce GTX 550 Ti, by far. (explain)

GeForce GTX 560 Ti 26304 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 550 Ti 21600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 4704 (22%)

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: Bandwidth is the largest amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface within a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units 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 in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
