GeForce 9500 GT DDR2 vs GeForce GT 210


Intro

The GeForce 9500 GT DDR2 uses a 65 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 550 MHz. The DDR2 RAM works at a speed of 500 MHz on this model. It features 32 SPUs as well as 16 TAUs and 8 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the GeForce GT 210, which has core speeds of 589 MHz on the GPU, and 800 MHz on the 512 MB of DDR3 RAM. It features 16 SPUs along with 8 TAUs and 4 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GT 210 31 Watts
GeForce 9500 GT DDR2 50 Watts
Difference: 19 Watts (61%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the GeForce 9500 GT DDR2 is 25% quicker than the GeForce GT 210 in general, because of its greater bandwidth. (explain)

GeForce 9500 GT DDR2 16000 MB/sec
GeForce GT 210 12800 MB/sec
Difference: 3200 (25%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 9500 GT DDR2 should be much (about 87%) better at AF than the GeForce GT 210. (explain)

GeForce 9500 GT DDR2 8800 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GT 210 4712 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 4088 (87%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce 9500 GT DDR2 is quite a bit (more or less 87%) faster with regards to AA than the GeForce GT 210, and will be able to handle higher resolutions while still performing well. (explain)

GeForce 9500 GT DDR2 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: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

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

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