Compare any two graphics cards:
VS

GeForce 920M vs GeForce 930M

Intro

The GeForce 920M has a GPU clock speed of 954 MHz, and the 2048 MB of DDR3 memory runs at 900 MHz through a 64-bit bus. It also is made up of 384 Stream Processors, 32 TAUs, and 8 ROPs.

Compare all that to the GeForce 930M, which has a GPU core clock speed of 928 MHz, and 2048 MB of DDR3 RAM running at 900 MHz through a 64-bit bus. It also is comprised of 384 Stream Processors, 24 TAUs, and 8 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Both cards have the exact same bandwidth, so theoretically they should have the same performance. (explain)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 920M should be much (more or less 37%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce 930M. (explain)

GeForce 920M 30528 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 930M 22272 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 8256 (37%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce 920M is a small bit (about 3%) faster with regards to anti-aliasing than the GeForce 930M, and also will be capable of handling higher screen resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

GeForce 920M 7632 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 930M 7424 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 208 (3%)

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 information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the 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 amount of pixels the video card could possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
