GeForce 8800 GS vs GeForce GTX 960M

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GS features a clock frequency of 550 MHz and a GDDR3 memory speed of 800 MHz. It also makes use of a 192-bit memory bus, and uses a 65 nm design. It is comprised of 96 SPUs, 48 TAUs, and 12 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the GeForce GTX 960M, which comes with a core clock frequency of 1096 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1000 MHz. It also makes use of a 128-bit memory bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It features 640 SPUs, 40 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GTX 960M 65 Watts
GeForce 8800 GS 105 Watts
Difference: 40 Watts (62%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the GeForce GTX 960M will be 67% quicker than the GeForce 8800 GS in general, due to its greater data rate. (explain)

GeForce GTX 960M 64000 MB/sec
GeForce 8800 GS 38400 MB/sec
Difference: 25600 (67%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 960M should be a lot (more or less 66%) more effective at AF than the GeForce 8800 GS. (explain)

GeForce GTX 960M 43840 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 8800 GS 26400 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 17440 (66%)

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 960M is superior to the GeForce 8800 GS, by far. (explain)

GeForce GTX 960M 17536 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 8800 GS 6600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 10936 (166%)

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 (counted in MB per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, 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 maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core 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 rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
