GeForce GT 240 GDDR5 1GB vs GeForce GTX 965M

Intro

The GeForce GT 240 GDDR5 1GB uses a 40 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 550 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a frequency of 850 MHz on this specific card. It features 96 SPUs as well as 32 TAUs and 8 ROPs.

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

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of 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 amount of Render Output Units by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
