GeForce 930M vs GeForce GT 210

Intro

The GeForce 930M uses a 28 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 928 MHz. The DDR3 memory is set to run at a speed of 900 MHz on this card. It features 384 SPUs as well as 24 TAUs and 8 ROPs.

Compare that to the GeForce GT 210, which uses a 40 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 589 MHz. The DDR3 RAM is set to run at a frequency of 800 MHz on this specific card. It features 16 SPUs as well as 8 TAUs and 4 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

The GeForce 930M, in theory, should perform just a bit faster than the GeForce GT 210 overall. (explain)

GeForce 930M 14400 MB/sec
GeForce GT 210 12800 MB/sec
Difference: 1600 (13%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 930M will be much (about 373%) faster with regards to AF than the GeForce GT 210. (explain)

GeForce 930M 22272 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GT 210 4712 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 17560 (373%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce 930M is a lot (approximately 215%) better at full screen anti-aliasing than the GeForce GT 210, and will be able to handle higher screen resolutions without slowing down too much. (explain)

GeForce 930M 7424 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GT 210 2356 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 5068 (215%)

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 transferred past the external memory interface in a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total 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 number of pixels the graphics card can possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
