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 frequency of 900 MHz on this specific model. It features 384 SPUs as well as 24 Texture Address Units and 8 ROPs.

Compare that to the GeForce GT 210, which has GPU core speed of 589 MHz, and 512 MB of DDR3 memory running at 800 MHz through a 64-bit bus. It also is made up of 16 SPUs, 8 Texture Address Units, and 4 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the GeForce 930M should be 13% faster than the GeForce GT 210 in general, because of its higher data rate. (explain)

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

Texel Rate

The GeForce 930M is a lot (about 373%) more effective at texture filtering 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 should be quite a bit (approximately 215%) better at anti-aliasing than the GeForce GT 210, and capable of handling higher resolutions while still performing well. (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: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface within a second. It is calculated by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the graphics card can 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 the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
