Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Both cards have the same power consumption.

Memory Bandwidth

The Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 1GB should in theory be a small bit faster than the GeForce 9500 GT 1GB GDDR3 overall. (explain)

Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 1GB 28800 MB/sec
GeForce 9500 GT 1GB GDDR3 25600 MB/sec
Difference: 3200 (13%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 1GB will be a lot (approximately 77%) more effective at AF than the GeForce 9500 GT 1GB GDDR3. (explain)

Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 1GB 15600 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 9500 GT 1GB GDDR3 8800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 6800 (77%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 1GB is a better choice, but not by far. (explain)

Radeon HD 6570 (OEM) 1GB 5200 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 9500 GT 1GB GDDR3 4400 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 800 (18%)

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 moved past the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 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 high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the video card can possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
