GeForce 830M vs GeForce GT 210

Intro

The GeForce 830M features a GPU core speed of 1029 MHz, and the 2048 MB of DDR3 RAM runs at 900 MHz through a 64-bit bus. It also is made up of 256 SPUs, 16 TAUs, and 8 Raster Operation Units.

Compare that to the GeForce GT 210, which comes with core speeds of 589 MHz on the GPU, and 800 MHz on the 512 MB of DDR3 RAM. It features 16 SPUs as well as 8 Texture Address Units and 4 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce 830M 25 Watts
GeForce GT 210 31 Watts
Difference: 6 Watts (24%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the GeForce 830M should be 13% faster than the GeForce GT 210 in general, because of its higher data rate. (explain)

GeForce 830M 14400 MB/sec
GeForce GT 210 12800 MB/sec
Difference: 1600 (13%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 830M should be much (more or less 249%) better at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GT 210. (explain)

GeForce 830M 16464 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GT 210 4712 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 11752 (249%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce 830M is a lot (approximately 249%) better at FSAA than the GeForce GT 210, and also will be capable of handling higher screen resolutions while still performing well. (explain)

GeForce 830M 8232 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GT 210 2356 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 5876 (249%)

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 data (measured in MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface within a second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. 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 can be processed in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total texture units by the core 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 in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core 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 also depends on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
