GeForce 810M vs GeForce 9500 GT DDR2

Intro

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

Compare those specs to the GeForce 9500 GT DDR2, which features a clock frequency of 550 MHz and a DDR2 memory frequency of 500 MHz. It also uses a 128-bit memory bus, and uses a 65 nm design. It features 32 SPUs, 16 TAUs, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce 810M 15 Watts
GeForce 9500 GT DDR2 50 Watts
Difference: 35 Watts (233%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the GeForce 9500 GT DDR2 should be 11% faster than the GeForce 810M overall, because of its greater bandwidth. (explain)

GeForce 9500 GT DDR2 16000 MB/sec
GeForce 810M 14400 MB/sec
Difference: 1600 (11%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 9500 GT DDR2 should be a lot (about 49%) more effective at AF than the GeForce 810M. (explain)

GeForce 9500 GT DDR2 8800 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 810M 5904 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 2896 (49%)

Pixel Rate

If using high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce 9500 GT DDR2 is a better choice, by far. (explain)

GeForce 9500 GT DDR2 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 max amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the video 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 card could possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the clock 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 also depends 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.
