GeForce 930M vs GeForce 9500 GT DDR2

Intro

The GeForce 930M features core clock speeds of 928 MHz on the GPU, and 900 MHz on the 2048 MB of DDR3 memory. It features 384 SPUs as well as 24 Texture Address Units and 8 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare that to the GeForce 9500 GT DDR2, 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 makes use of a 65 nm design. It is made up of 32 SPUs, 16 TAUs, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

As far as performance goes, the GeForce 9500 GT DDR2 should theoretically be a small bit superior to the GeForce 930M overall. (explain)

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

Texel Rate

The GeForce 930M is much (about 153%) better at AF 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 should be a lot (approximately 69%) faster with regards to AA than the GeForce 9500 GT DDR2, and will be capable of handling higher screen resolutions while still performing well. (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 MB per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the video card could possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
