GeForce GTX 870M 96000 MB/sec
Difference: 15888 (17%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 870M is quite a bit (more or less 154%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the GeForce GTX 260 Core 216. (explain)

GeForce GTX 870M 105392 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 41472 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 63920 (154%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 870M should be much (more or less 40%) faster with regards to AA than the GeForce GTX 260 Core 216, and also capable of handling higher resolutions better. (explain)

GeForce GTX 870M 22584 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 16128 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 6456 (40%)

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 (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the video 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 the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the the core clock speed. 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 also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
