GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 vs GeForce GTX 880M

Intro

The GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 uses a 65 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 576 MHz. The GDDR3 RAM runs at a speed of 999 MHz on this card. It features 216 SPUs along with 72 TAUs and 28 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all of that to the GeForce GTX 880M, which has clock speeds of 954 MHz on the GPU, and 1000 MHz on the 4096 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 1536 SPUs as well as 128 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

In theory, the GeForce GTX 880M is 14% quicker than the GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 in general, because of its greater data rate. (explain)

GeForce GTX 880M 128000 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 111888 MB/sec
Difference: 16112 (14%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 880M should be quite a bit (approximately 194%) better at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTX 260 Core 216. (explain)

GeForce GTX 880M 122112 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 41472 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 80640 (194%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high screen resolution is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 880M is the winner, by a large margin. (explain)

GeForce GTX 880M 30528 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 16128 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 14400 (89%)

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 largest amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in a second. It's calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the card's 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 rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
