GeForce GT 210 vs GeForce GT 340

Intro

The GeForce GT 210 has a core clock speed of 589 MHz and a DDR3 memory speed of 800 MHz. It also uses a 64-bit bus, and uses a 40 nm design. It is made up of 16 SPUs, 8 Texture Address Units, and 4 ROPs.

Compare all that to the GeForce GT 340, which features a clock frequency of 550 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 850 MHz. It also makes use of a 128-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 40 nm design. It features 96 SPUs, 32 TAUs, and 8 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GT 210 31 Watts
GeForce GT 340 69 Watts
Difference: 38 Watts (123%)

Memory Bandwidth

Performance-wise, the GeForce GT 340 should in theory be a lot superior to the GeForce GT 210 overall. (explain)

GeForce GT 340 54400 MB/sec
GeForce GT 210 12800 MB/sec
Difference: 41600 (325%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GT 340 will be quite a bit (more or less 274%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GT 210. (explain)

GeForce GT 340 17600 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GT 210 4712 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 12888 (274%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high resolution is important to you, then the GeForce GT 340 is a better choice, and very much so. (explain)

GeForce GT 340 4400 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GT 210 2356 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 2044 (87%)

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 max amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface within a second. It is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the core speed of the card. 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 is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
