GeForce 930M vs GeForce 9600 GSO ASUS 512

Intro

The GeForce 930M makes use of a 28 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 928 MHz. The DDR3 RAM runs at a speed of 900 MHz on this particular model. It features 384 SPUs along with 24 Texture Address Units and 8 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the GeForce 9600 GSO ASUS 512, which comes with a clock frequency of 550 MHz and a DDR2 memory speed of 500 MHz. It also features a 128-bit bus, and uses a 65 nm design. It is comprised of 96 SPUs, 48 TAUs, and 12 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically, the GeForce 9600 GSO ASUS 512 should be a little bit faster than the GeForce 930M in general. (explain)

GeForce 9600 GSO ASUS 512 16000 MB/sec
GeForce 930M 14400 MB/sec
Difference: 1600 (11%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 9600 GSO ASUS 512 should be a bit (about 19%) better at AF than the GeForce 930M. (explain)

GeForce 9600 GSO ASUS 512 26400 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 930M 22272 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 4128 (19%)

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce 930M is the winner, though only just barely. (explain)

GeForce 930M 7424 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 9600 GSO ASUS 512 6600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 824 (12%)

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 megabytes per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 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 anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, 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 most pixels the video card can possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. 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, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
