GeForce 9600 GSO 768MB vs GeForce RTX 3070 Ti

Intro

The GeForce 9600 GSO 768MB has a clock speed of 550 MHz and a GDDR3 memory speed of 800 MHz. It also features a 192-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 65 nm design. It is made up of 96 SPUs, 48 TAUs, and 12 Raster Operation Units.

Compare that to the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti, which features GPU core speed of 1575 MHz, and 8192 MB of GDDR6X RAM set to run at 1188 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also features 6144 SPUs, 192 Texture Address Units, and 96 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the max amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in a second. It is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics chip could possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the the core speed of the card. 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 fill rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
