GeForce 930M vs GeForce 9600 GSO ASUS 512

Intro

The GeForce 930M has a GPU core speed of 928 MHz, and the 2048 MB of DDR3 memory runs at 900 MHz through a 64-bit bus. It also is comprised of 384 SPUs, 24 Texture Address Units, and 8 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the GeForce 9600 GSO ASUS 512, which features GPU clock speed of 550 MHz, and 512 MB of DDR2 RAM running at 500 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is made up of 96 Stream Processors, 48 TAUs, and 12 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the GeForce 9600 GSO ASUS 512 is 11% faster than the GeForce 930M in general, due to its higher data rate. (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 is just a bit (about 19%) more effective at texture filtering 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 high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce 930M is superior to the GeForce 9600 GSO ASUS 512, 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: Bandwidth is the max amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card can possibly write to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
