GeForce 930M vs GeForce 9500 GT DDR2

Intro

The GeForce 930M comes with a core clock speed of 928 MHz and a DDR3 memory speed of 900 MHz. It also features a 64-bit bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It is comprised of 384 SPUs, 24 TAUs, and 8 ROPs.

Compare all that to the GeForce 9500 GT DDR2, which features core clock speeds of 550 MHz on the GPU, and 500 MHz on the 256 MB of DDR2 RAM. It features 32 SPUs as well as 16 Texture Address Units and 8 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the GeForce 9500 GT DDR2 will be 11% quicker than the GeForce 930M in general, because of its higher bandwidth. (explain)

GeForce 9500 GT DDR2 16000 MB/sec
GeForce 930M 14400 MB/sec
Difference: 1600 (11%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 930M will be quite a bit (approximately 153%) more effective at texture filtering than the GeForce 9500 GT DDR2. (explain)

GeForce 930M 22272 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 9500 GT DDR2 8800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 13472 (153%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce 930M will be much (approximately 69%) more effective at AA than the GeForce 9500 GT DDR2, and also capable of handling higher screen resolutions without slowing down too much. (explain)

GeForce 930M 7424 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 9500 GT DDR2 4400 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 3024 (69%)

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 data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the video 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 most pixels the graphics card could 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 Raster Operations Pipelines by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
