GeForce 9600 GT 512MB vs Radeon HD 4750

Intro

The GeForce 9600 GT 512MB features a GPU clock speed of 650 MHz, and the 512 MB of GDDR3 RAM runs at 900 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is comprised of 64 Stream Processors, 32 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon HD 4750, which features core speeds of 730 MHz on the GPU, and 800 MHz on the 512 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 640(128x5) SPUs along with 32 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

GeForce 9600 GT 512MB 57600 MB/sec
Radeon HD 4750 51200 MB/sec
Difference: 6400 (13%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon HD 4750 is a little bit (about 12%) more effective at texture filtering than the GeForce 9600 GT 512MB. (explain)

Radeon HD 4750 23360 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 9600 GT 512MB 20800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 2560 (12%)

Pixel Rate

The Radeon HD 4750 should be a small bit (approximately 12%) faster with regards to full screen anti-aliasing than the GeForce 9600 GT 512MB, and should be capable of handling higher screen resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

Radeon HD 4750 11680 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 9600 GT 512MB 10400 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 1280 (12%)

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 maximum amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in a second. It's calculated by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core 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 in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
