GeForce 920M vs GeForce 9500 GT DDR2

Intro

The GeForce 920M features core speeds of 954 MHz on the GPU, and 900 MHz on the 2048 MB of DDR3 memory. It features 384 SPUs as well as 32 Texture Address Units and 8 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the GeForce 9500 GT DDR2, which features GPU core speed of 550 MHz, and 256 MB of DDR2 memory running at 500 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is comprised of 32 SPUs, 16 Texture Address Units, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the GeForce 9500 GT DDR2 should be a little bit faster than the GeForce 920M overall. (explain)

GeForce 9500 GT DDR2 16000 MB/sec
GeForce 920M 14400 MB/sec
Difference: 1600 (11%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 920M should be a lot (approximately 247%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce 9500 GT DDR2. (explain)

GeForce 920M 30528 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 9500 GT DDR2 8800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 21728 (247%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce 920M is quite a bit (about 73%) more effective at FSAA than the GeForce 9500 GT DDR2, and should be capable of handling higher resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

GeForce 920M 7632 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 9500 GT DDR2 4400 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 3232 (73%)

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 maximum amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the video card could possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
