GeForce GT 240 GDDR5 vs GeForce GTX 965M

Intro

The GeForce GT 240 GDDR5 makes use of a 40 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 550 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM runs at a speed of 850 MHz on this particular card. It features 96 SPUs along with 32 TAUs and 8 ROPs.

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 card. It features 1024 SPUs along with 64 TAUs and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in a second. It is worked out by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If 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, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total number 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 processed in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card can possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
