GeForce 920M vs GeForce GT 210

Intro

The GeForce 920M comes with a core clock frequency of 954 MHz and a DDR3 memory speed of 900 MHz. It also makes use of a 64-bit memory bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It features 384 SPUs, 32 TAUs, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specifications to the GeForce GT 210, which makes use of a 40 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 589 MHz. The DDR3 RAM is set to run at a speed of 800 MHz on this model. It features 16 SPUs along with 8 Texture Address Units and 4 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

The GeForce 920M should theoretically perform just a bit faster than the GeForce GT 210 overall. (explain)

GeForce 920M 14400 MB/sec
GeForce GT 210 12800 MB/sec
Difference: 1600 (13%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 920M is quite a bit (more or less 548%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GT 210. (explain)

GeForce 920M 30528 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GT 210 4712 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 25816 (548%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high resolution is important to you, then the GeForce 920M is a better choice, and very much so. (explain)

GeForce 920M 7632 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GT 210 2356 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 5276 (224%)

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 transported across the external memory interface within a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
