GeForce GT 130 vs GeForce GT 210

Intro

The GeForce GT 130 comes with a clock speed of 500 MHz and a DDR2 memory speed of 250 MHz. It also makes use of a 192-bit memory bus, and uses a 55 nm design. It features 48 SPUs, 24 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the GeForce GT 210, which features GPU core speed of 589 MHz, and 512 MB of DDR3 RAM set to run at 800 MHz through a 64-bit bus. It also features 16 SPUs, 8 TAUs, and 4 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GT 210 31 Watts
GeForce GT 130 75 Watts
Difference: 44 Watts (142%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically, the GeForce GT 210 should perform a bit faster than the GeForce GT 130 in general. (explain)

GeForce GT 210 12800 MB/sec
GeForce GT 130 12000 MB/sec
Difference: 800 (7%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GT 130 should be a lot (approximately 155%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GT 210. (explain)

GeForce GT 130 12000 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GT 210 4712 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 7288 (155%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high screen resolution is important to you, then the GeForce GT 130 is the winner, and very much so. (explain)

GeForce GT 130 8000 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GT 210 2356 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 5644 (240%)

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 largest amount of data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, 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 processed in one second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total texture units by the core 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 per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card can possibly write to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
