GeForce 820M vs GeForce 830M

Intro

The GeForce 820M has core speeds of 719 MHz on the GPU, and 1000 MHz on the 2048 MB of DDR3 RAM. It features 96 SPUs along with 16 Texture Address Units and 4 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all of that to the GeForce 830M, which comes with clock speeds of 1029 MHz on the GPU, and 900 MHz on the 2048 MB of DDR3 RAM. It features 256 SPUs as well as 16 TAUs and 8 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce 820M 15 Watts
GeForce 830M 25 Watts
Difference: 10 Watts (67%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the GeForce 820M is 11% quicker than the GeForce 830M in general, because of its greater data rate. (explain)

GeForce 820M 16000 MB/sec
GeForce 830M 14400 MB/sec
Difference: 1600 (11%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 830M is quite a bit (more or less 43%) better at texture filtering than the GeForce 820M. (explain)

GeForce 830M 16464 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 820M 11504 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 4960 (43%)

Pixel Rate

If using high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce 830M is superior to the GeForce 820M, and very much so. (explain)

GeForce 830M 8232 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 820M 2876 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 5356 (186%)

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 (in units of MB per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in a second. It is worked out by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied 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 the texel rate, the better the 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 most pixels the graphics card can possibly write 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 - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill 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.
