GeForce GTX 295 vs GeForce GTX 880M

Intro

The GeForce GTX 295 uses a 55 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 576 MHz. The GDDR3 RAM is set to run at a speed of 999 MHz on this particular card. It features 240 SPUs along with 80 Texture Address Units and 28 ROPs.

Compare that to the GeForce GTX 880M, which makes use of a 28 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 954 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a frequency of 1000 MHz on this particular card. It features 1536 SPUs along with 128 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GTX 880M 130 Watts
GeForce GTX 295 289 Watts
Difference: 159 Watts (122%)

Memory Bandwidth

Performance-wise, the GeForce GTX 295 should theoretically be quite a bit better than the GeForce GTX 880M in general. (explain)

GeForce GTX 295 223776 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 880M 128000 MB/sec
Difference: 95776 (75%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 880M will be a lot (more or less 33%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTX 295. (explain)

GeForce GTX 880M 122112 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 295 92160 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 29952 (33%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 295 should be just a bit (approximately 6%) better at FSAA than the GeForce GTX 880M, and also should be capable of handling higher resolutions while still performing well. (explain)

GeForce GTX 295 32256 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 880M 30528 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 1728 (6%)

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.

One or more cards in this comparison are multi-core. This means that their bandwidth, texel and pixel rates are theoretically doubled - this does not mean the card will actually perform twice as fast, but only that it should in theory be able to. Actual game benchmarks will give a more accurate idea of what it's capable of.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the max amount of information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the graphics 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 most pixels the graphics card could possibly record to its 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 card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on many 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.
