GeForce 810M vs GeForce 9600 GSO ASUS 512

Intro

The GeForce 810M features a GPU core clock speed of 738 MHz, and the 1024 MB of DDR3 memory is set to run at 900 MHz through a 64-bit bus. It also is comprised of 48 Stream Processors, 8 TAUs, and 4 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specs to the GeForce 9600 GSO ASUS 512, which uses a 65 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 550 MHz. The DDR2 RAM works at a frequency of 500 MHz on this model. It features 96 SPUs as well as 48 Texture Address Units and 12 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core speed of the card. 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 fill rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
