GeForce GT 1030 vs GeForce GT 210

Intro

The GeForce GT 1030 has a GPU clock speed of 1265 MHz, and the 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory is set to run at 1502 MHz through a 64-bit bus. It also features 384 SPUs, 32 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Compare that to the GeForce GT 210, which has a clock speed of 589 MHz and a DDR3 memory speed of 800 MHz. It also makes use of a 64-bit bus, and uses a 40 nm design. It is comprised of 16 SPUs, 8 TAUs, and 4 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GT 1030 30 Watts
GeForce GT 210 31 Watts
Difference: 1 Watts (3%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the GeForce GT 1030 is 284% faster than the GeForce GT 210 in general, because of its greater data rate. (explain)

GeForce GT 1030 49152 MB/sec
GeForce GT 210 12800 MB/sec
Difference: 36352 (284%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GT 1030 should be much (about 759%) faster with regards to AF than the GeForce GT 210. (explain)

GeForce GT 1030 40480 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GT 210 4712 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 35768 (759%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce GT 1030 is the winner, by far. (explain)

GeForce GT 1030 20240 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GT 210 2356 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 17884 (759%)

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: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, 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 applied in one second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics chip could possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
