GeForce GT 450 (OEM) vs GeForce GTX 970M

Intro

The GeForce GT 450 (OEM) has a clock speed of 790 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1000 MHz. It also features a 192-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 40 nm design. It is made up of 144 SPUs, 24 Texture Address Units, and 24 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specifications to the GeForce GTX 970M, which uses a 28 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 924 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM is set to run at a speed of 1000 MHz on this model. It features 1280 SPUs along with 80 TAUs and 48 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GTX 970M 75 Watts
GeForce GT 450 (OEM) 106 Watts
Difference: 31 Watts (41%)

Memory Bandwidth

Both cards have exactly the same memory bandwidth, so in theory they should perform exactly the same. (explain)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 970M should be quite a bit (about 290%) faster with regards to AF than the GeForce GT 450 (OEM). (explain)

GeForce GTX 970M 73920 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GT 450 (OEM) 18960 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 54960 (290%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 970M is quite a bit (more or less 134%) better at full screen anti-aliasing than the GeForce GT 450 (OEM), and should be able to handle higher resolutions more effectively. (explain)

GeForce GTX 970M 44352 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GT 450 (OEM) 18960 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 25392 (134%)

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 megabytes per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface within a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core clock 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 applied in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics chip can possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
