GeForce GTX 465 vs GeForce GTX 950

Intro

The GeForce GTX 465 has clock speeds of 607 MHz on the GPU, and 802 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 352 SPUs along with 44 Texture Address Units and 32 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the GeForce GTX 950, which features clock speeds of 1024 MHz on the GPU, and 1652 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 768 SPUs as well as 48 Texture Address Units and 32 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GTX 950 90 Watts
GeForce GTX 465 200 Watts
Difference: 110 Watts (122%)

Memory Bandwidth

Performance-wise, the GeForce GTX 950 should theoretically be a little bit superior to the GeForce GTX 465 in general. (explain)

GeForce GTX 950 105728 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 465 102592 MB/sec
Difference: 3136 (3%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 950 is a lot (approximately 84%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTX 465. (explain)

GeForce GTX 950 49152 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 465 26708 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 22444 (84%)

Pixel Rate

If running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 950 is superior to the GeForce GTX 465, and very much so. (explain)

GeForce GTX 950 32768 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 465 19424 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 13344 (69%)

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 (counted in MB per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once 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 AA, High Dynamic Range and high 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 amount of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card can possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
