GeForce 920M vs GeForce 9500 GT DDR2

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 TAUs and 8 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specs to the GeForce 9500 GT DDR2, which has a GPU core clock speed of 550 MHz, and 256 MB of DDR2 RAM 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

Theoretically, the GeForce 9500 GT DDR2 should perform a small 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 is a lot (about 247%) better at AF than the GeForce 9500 GT DDR2. (explain)

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

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce 920M is the winner, by a large margin. (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: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If 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 can be processed in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock 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 in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the graphics card can possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the card's clock speed. 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 output rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
