GeForce 810M vs GeForce 8600 GT 256MB DDR2

Intro

The GeForce 810M has core speeds of 738 MHz on the GPU, and 900 MHz on the 1024 MB of DDR3 memory. It features 48 SPUs as well as 8 TAUs and 4 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the GeForce 8600 GT 256MB DDR2, which makes use of a 80 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 540 MHz. The DDR2 memory runs at a speed of 400 MHz on this particular model. It features 32 SPUs as well as 16 TAUs and 8 Rasterization Operator Units.

Theoretically, the GeForce 810M should perform just a bit faster than the GeForce 8600 GT 256MB DDR2 overall. (explain)

GeForce 810M 14400 MB/sec
GeForce 8600 GT 256MB DDR2 12800 MB/sec
Difference: 1600 (13%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 8600 GT 256MB DDR2 should be much (about 46%) better at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce 810M. (explain)

GeForce 8600 GT 256MB DDR2 8640 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 810M 5904 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 2736 (46%)

Pixel Rate

If running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce 8600 GT 256MB DDR2 is superior to the GeForce 810M, by far. (explain)

GeForce 8600 GT 256MB DDR2 4320 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 810M 2952 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 1368 (46%)

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 largest amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the video card can possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
