GeForce GTX 960M vs GeForce GTX 965M

Intro

The GeForce GTX 960M makes use of a 28 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 1096 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a speed of 1000 MHz on this specific card. It features 640 SPUs as well as 40 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare that to the GeForce GTX 965M, which has GPU core speed of 944 MHz, and 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory running at 1000 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is made up of 1024 Stream Processors, 64 TAUs, and 32 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth

Both cards have exactly the same memory bandwidth, so in theory they should have the same performance. (explain)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 965M will be a lot (more or less 38%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the GeForce GTX 960M. (explain)

GeForce GTX 965M 60416 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 960M 43840 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 16576 (38%)

Pixel Rate

If using high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 965M is a better choice, by far. (explain)

GeForce GTX 965M 30208 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 960M 17536 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 12672 (72%)

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 (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in one second. It is worked out by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's 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 texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better 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 its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill 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.
