GeForce 920M vs GeForce 9600 GSO ASUS 512

Intro

The GeForce 920M has a GPU clock speed of 954 MHz, and the 2048 MB of DDR3 memory is set to run at 900 MHz through a 64-bit bus. It also features 384 SPUs, 32 Texture Address Units, and 8 ROPs.

Compare all that to the GeForce 9600 GSO ASUS 512, which comes with GPU clock speed of 550 MHz, and 512 MB of DDR2 RAM running at 500 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is comprised of 96 Stream Processors, 48 TAUs, and 12 Raster Operation Units.

GeForce 920M 14400 MB/sec
Difference: 1600 (11%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 920M should be a little bit (about 16%) more effective at AF than the GeForce 9600 GSO ASUS 512. (explain)

GeForce 920M 30528 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 9600 GSO ASUS 512 26400 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 4128 (16%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high screen resolution is important to you, then the GeForce 920M is superior to the GeForce 9600 GSO ASUS 512, though not by far. (explain)

GeForce 920M 7632 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 9600 GSO ASUS 512 6600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 1032 (16%)

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 megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in a second. It is calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better 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 per second. This is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the 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 could possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of 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 rate is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
