GeForce 8500 GT vs GeForce 920M

Intro

The GeForce 8500 GT uses a 80 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 450 MHz. The DDR2 RAM works at a speed of 400 MHz on this particular model. It features 16 SPUs as well as 8 Texture Address Units and 4 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the GeForce 920M, which uses a 28 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 954 MHz. The DDR3 memory runs at a speed of 900 MHz on this particular model. It features 384 SPUs along with 32 TAUs and 8 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the GeForce 920M should be a little bit faster than the GeForce 8500 GT overall. (explain)

GeForce 920M 14400 MB/sec
GeForce 8500 GT 12800 MB/sec
Difference: 1600 (13%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 920M is much (approximately 748%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the GeForce 8500 GT. (explain)

GeForce 920M 30528 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 8500 GT 3600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 26928 (748%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high resolution is important to you, then the GeForce 920M is the winner, by a large margin. (explain)

GeForce 920M 7632 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 8500 GT 1800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 5832 (324%)

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 maximum amount of data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses 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 texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the video card can possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
