GeForce GTX 465 vs GeForce GTX 970M

Intro

The GeForce GTX 465 has a GPU core clock speed of 607 MHz, and the 1024 MB of GDDR5 RAM is set to run at 802 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also features 352 SPUs, 44 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all that to the GeForce GTX 970M, which has a core clock speed of 924 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1000 MHz. It also makes use of a 192-bit bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It is comprised of 1280 SPUs, 80 TAUs, and 48 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the largest amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the video card will be at handling 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 could possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated 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 rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
