GeForce GT 240 GDDR5 vs GeForce GTX 965M

Intro

The GeForce GT 240 GDDR5 makes use of a 40 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 550 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a speed of 850 MHz on this card. It features 96 SPUs along with 32 TAUs and 8 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specs to the GeForce GTX 965M, which makes use of a 28 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 944 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM works at a speed of 1000 MHz on this specific model. It features 1024 SPUs as well as 64 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the better 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This is worked out by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics card could possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
