GeForce GT 210 vs GeForce GT 450 (OEM)

Intro

The GeForce GT 210 makes use of a 40 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 589 MHz. The DDR3 memory is set to run at a speed of 800 MHz on this specific card. It features 16 SPUs as well as 8 Texture Address Units and 4 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the GeForce GT 450 (OEM), which features clock speeds of 790 MHz on the GPU, and 1000 MHz on the 1536 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 144 SPUs as well as 24 TAUs and 24 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the largest amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better 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 can be applied in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
