GeForce GT 210 vs GeForce GTX 870M

Intro

The GeForce GT 210 makes use of a 40 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 589 MHz. The DDR3 memory is set to run at a frequency of 800 MHz on this card. It features 16 SPUs as well as 8 TAUs and 4 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the GeForce GTX 870M, which features a GPU core clock speed of 941 MHz, and 3072 MB of GDDR5 RAM running at 1000 MHz through a 192-bit bus. It also is comprised of 1344 Stream Processors, 112 Texture Address Units, and 24 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card could 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 ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called 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, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
