GeForce 810M vs GeForce 8600 GT 1GB DDR2

Intro

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

Compare those specs to the GeForce 8600 GT 1GB DDR2, which makes use of a 80 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 540 MHz. The DDR2 memory works at a speed of 400 MHz on this model. It features 32 SPUs as well as 16 TAUs and 8 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the largest amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be 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 texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly write 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 clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
