GeForce 8800 GS vs GeForce GTX 950M

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GS comes with core speeds of 550 MHz on the GPU, and 800 MHz on the 384 MB of GDDR3 RAM. It features 96 SPUs along with 48 TAUs and 12 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the GeForce GTX 950M, which comes with a core clock frequency of 914 MHz and a DDR3 memory speed of 1000 MHz. It also makes use of a 128-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It is comprised of 640 SPUs, 40 Texture Address Units, and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GTX 950M 55 Watts
GeForce 8800 GS 105 Watts
Difference: 50 Watts (91%)

Memory Bandwidth

Performance-wise, the GeForce 8800 GS should theoretically be just a bit superior to the GeForce GTX 950M overall. (explain)

GeForce 8800 GS 38400 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 950M 32000 MB/sec
Difference: 6400 (20%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 950M will be quite a bit (approximately 38%) better at AF than the GeForce 8800 GS. (explain)

GeForce GTX 950M 36560 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 8800 GS 26400 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 10160 (38%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 950M should be much (more or less 122%) faster with regards to AA than the GeForce 8800 GS, and should be able to handle higher resolutions without slowing down too much. (explain)

GeForce GTX 950M 14624 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 8800 GS 6600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 8024 (122%)

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 information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface within a second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the video card can possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of 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 many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
