GeForce 810M vs GeForce 940M

Intro

The GeForce 810M comes with core clock speeds of 738 MHz on the GPU, and 900 MHz on the 1024 MB of DDR3 memory. It features 48 SPUs along with 8 Texture Address Units and 4 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the GeForce 940M, which comes with a core clock frequency of 1072 MHz and a DDR3 memory frequency of 1000 MHz. It also makes use of a 64-bit bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It is made up of 384 SPUs, 24 TAUs, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the GeForce 940M is 11% quicker than the GeForce 810M overall, because of its higher data rate. (explain)

GeForce 940M 16000 MB/sec
GeForce 810M 14400 MB/sec
Difference: 1600 (11%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 940M is quite a bit (about 336%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the GeForce 810M. (explain)

GeForce 940M 25728 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 810M 5904 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 19824 (336%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high resolution is important to you, then the GeForce 940M is a better choice, by far. (explain)

GeForce 940M 8576 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 810M 2952 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 5624 (191%)

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: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (counted in MB per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface within a second. It's worked out by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics card could possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
