GeForce 9800 GTX+ vs GeForce GTX 960M

Intro

The GeForce 9800 GTX+ features core clock speeds of 738 MHz on the GPU, and 1100 MHz on the 512 MB of GDDR3 memory. It features 128 SPUs as well as 64 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the GeForce GTX 960M, which makes use of a 28 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 1096 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM is set to run at a speed of 1000 MHz on this card. It features 640 SPUs along with 40 Texture Address Units and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GTX 960M 65 Watts
GeForce 9800 GTX+ 145 Watts
Difference: 80 Watts (123%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the GeForce 9800 GTX+ will be 10% quicker than the GeForce GTX 960M in general, because of its greater data rate. (explain)

GeForce 9800 GTX+ 70400 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 960M 64000 MB/sec
Difference: 6400 (10%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 9800 GTX+ will be a bit (approximately 8%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTX 960M. (explain)

GeForce 9800 GTX+ 47232 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 960M 43840 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 3392 (8%)

Pixel Rate

If running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 960M is the winner, by a large margin. (explain)

GeForce GTX 960M 17536 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 9800 GTX+ 11808 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 5728 (49%)

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 (counted in MB per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the video card could possibly record to its local memory in one 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 - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
