GeForce GTX 860M vs GeForce GTX 965M

Intro

The GeForce GTX 860M comes with a GPU clock speed of 797 MHz, and the 4096 MB of GDDR5 memory runs at 1000 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also features 1152 Stream Processors, 96 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Compare that to the GeForce GTX 965M, which makes use of a 28 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 944 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a speed of 1000 MHz on this card. It features 1024 SPUs as well as 64 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in a second. It's calculated by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the card will be at 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 could possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
