GeForce 810M vs GeForce 8600 GT 256MB DDR2

Intro

The GeForce 810M uses a 28 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 738 MHz. The DDR3 RAM works at a speed of 900 MHz on this particular card. It features 48 SPUs along with 8 Texture Address Units and 4 ROPs.

Compare all that to the GeForce 8600 GT 256MB DDR2, which uses a 80 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 540 MHz. The DDR2 RAM runs at a frequency of 400 MHz on this model. It features 32 SPUs as well as 16 TAUs and 8 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, the faster 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 calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better 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 graphics card could possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
