GeForce 810M vs Radeon HD 5550

Intro

The GeForce 810M makes use of a 28 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 738 MHz. The DDR3 memory works at a speed of 900 MHz on this specific model. It features 48 SPUs as well as 8 TAUs and 4 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all that to the Radeon HD 5550, which has a clock speed of 550 MHz and a DDR2 memory speed of 400 MHz. It also makes use of a 128-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 40 nm design. It is made up of 320(64x5) SPUs, 16 TAUs, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the GeForce 810M should be a small bit faster than the Radeon HD 5550 in general. (explain)

GeForce 810M 14400 MB/sec
Radeon HD 5550 12800 MB/sec
Difference: 1600 (13%)

Texel Rate

The Radeon HD 5550 should be much (about 49%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the GeForce 810M. (explain)

Radeon HD 5550 8800 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 810M 5904 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 2896 (49%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high resolution is important to you, then the Radeon HD 5550 is a better choice, and very much so. (explain)

Radeon HD 5550 4400 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 810M 2952 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 1448 (49%)

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 data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface within a second. It is calculated by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type RAM, the result should 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 high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the graphics card could possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka 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 get to the max fill rate.
