GeForce 9800 GT 1GB vs GeForce GTX 965M

Intro

The GeForce 9800 GT 1GB comes with core speeds of 600 MHz on the GPU, and 900 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR3 RAM. It features 112 SPUs as well as 56 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare that to the GeForce GTX 965M, which has GPU clock speed of 944 MHz, and 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM running at 1000 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is made up of 1024 SPUs, 64 Texture Address Units, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GTX 965M 60 Watts
GeForce 9800 GT 1GB 105 Watts
Difference: 45 Watts (75%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the GeForce GTX 965M should be 11% quicker than the GeForce 9800 GT 1GB in general, due to its greater data rate. (explain)

GeForce GTX 965M 64000 MB/sec
GeForce 9800 GT 1GB 57600 MB/sec
Difference: 6400 (11%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 965M is quite a bit (more or less 80%) more effective at texture filtering than the GeForce 9800 GT 1GB. (explain)

GeForce GTX 965M 60416 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 9800 GT 1GB 33600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 26816 (80%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 965M should be much (approximately 215%) more effective at full screen anti-aliasing than the GeForce 9800 GT 1GB, and should be able to handle higher resolutions better. (explain)

GeForce GTX 965M 30208 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 9800 GT 1GB 9600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 20608 (215%)

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 largest amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in a second. It is worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This is calculated by multiplying the total texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
