GeForce GTX 480 vs Geforce GTX 760

Intro

The GeForce GTX 480 makes use of a 40 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 700 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM runs at a frequency of 924 MHz on this particular model. It features 480 SPUs along with 60 Texture Address Units and 48 ROPs.

Compare that to the Geforce GTX 760, which features a GPU core clock speed of 980 MHz, and 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory running at 1502 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is made up of 1152 Stream Processors, 96 Texture Address Units, and 32 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR memory, it 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 anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card can possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). 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 potential to reach the max fill rate.
