GeForce 920M vs GeForce 9600 GSO ASUS 512

Intro

The GeForce 920M comes with core clock speeds of 954 MHz on the GPU, and 900 MHz on the 2048 MB of DDR3 RAM. It features 384 SPUs along with 32 Texture Address Units and 8 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the GeForce 9600 GSO ASUS 512, which has GPU clock speed of 550 MHz, and 512 MB of DDR2 RAM running at 500 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also features 96 SPUs, 48 TAUs, and 12 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

As far as performance goes, the GeForce 9600 GSO ASUS 512 should theoretically be just a bit better than the GeForce 920M in general. (explain)

GeForce 9600 GSO ASUS 512 16000 MB/sec
GeForce 920M 14400 MB/sec
Difference: 1600 (11%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 920M should be a bit (approximately 16%) faster with regards to 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 lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce 920M is a better choice, but it probably won't make a huge difference. (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: Bandwidth is the largest amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in one second. The number is calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the video card could possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. 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 get to the max fill rate.
