GeForce 825M vs GeForce 920M

Intro

The GeForce 825M makes use of a 28 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 850 MHz. The DDR3 RAM runs at a speed of 900 MHz on this particular model. It features 384 SPUs as well as 16 TAUs and 8 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all that to the GeForce 920M, which has a GPU core clock speed of 954 MHz, and 2048 MB of DDR3 RAM running at 900 MHz through a 64-bit bus. It also is made up of 384 SPUs, 32 TAUs, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Both cards have exactly the same memory bandwidth, so in theory they should perform exactly the same. (explain)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 920M is quite a bit (more or less 124%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the GeForce 825M. (explain)

GeForce 920M 30528 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 825M 13600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 16928 (124%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce 920M will be a small bit (approximately 12%) more effective at full screen anti-aliasing than the GeForce 825M, and also able to handle higher resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

GeForce 920M 7632 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 825M 6800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 832 (12%)

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 maximum amount of data (counted in MB per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the graphics card could possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on many 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.
