GeForce 825M vs GeForce GT 210

Intro

The GeForce 825M uses a 28 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 850 MHz. The DDR3 RAM works at a speed of 900 MHz on this card. It features 384 SPUs along with 16 TAUs and 8 ROPs.

Compare all that to the GeForce GT 210, which uses a 40 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 589 MHz. The DDR3 RAM is set to run at a speed of 800 MHz on this card. It features 16 SPUs as well as 8 TAUs and 4 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GT 210 31 Watts
GeForce 825M 33 Watts
Difference: 2 Watts (6%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the GeForce 825M will be 13% faster than the GeForce GT 210 overall, due to its higher bandwidth. (explain)

GeForce 825M 14400 MB/sec
GeForce GT 210 12800 MB/sec
Difference: 1600 (13%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 825M will be a lot (about 189%) better at texture filtering than the GeForce GT 210. (explain)

GeForce 825M 13600 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GT 210 4712 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 8888 (189%)

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce 825M is superior to the GeForce GT 210, by far. (explain)

GeForce 825M 6800 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GT 210 2356 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 4444 (189%)

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 maximum amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transported past 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. In the case of DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, the faster 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 processed in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
