GeForce 9600 GSO 384MB vs GeForce GTX 850M

Intro

The GeForce 9600 GSO 384MB has a GPU core clock speed of 550 MHz, and the 384 MB of GDDR3 RAM is set to run at 800 MHz through a 192-bit bus. It also is made up of 96 Stream Processors, 48 Texture Address Units, and 12 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the GeForce GTX 850M, which comes with a clock frequency of 876 MHz and a DDR3 memory frequency of 1000 MHz. It also uses a 128-bit bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It is made up of 640 SPUs, 40 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GTX 850M 40 Watts
GeForce 9600 GSO 384MB 84 Watts
Difference: 44 Watts (110%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the GeForce 9600 GSO 384MB will be 20% faster than the GeForce GTX 850M in general, because of its higher data rate. (explain)

GeForce 9600 GSO 384MB 38400 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 850M 32000 MB/sec
Difference: 6400 (20%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 850M will be a lot (approximately 33%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the GeForce 9600 GSO 384MB. (explain)

GeForce GTX 850M 35040 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 9600 GSO 384MB 26400 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 8640 (33%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 850M should be a lot (more or less 112%) faster with regards to anti-aliasing than the GeForce 9600 GSO 384MB, and should be able to handle higher screen resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

GeForce GTX 850M 14016 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 9600 GSO 384MB 6600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 7416 (112%)

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 max amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, 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 are processed in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the video card can possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
