GeForce 9500 GT DDR2 vs GeForce GT 210

Intro

The GeForce 9500 GT DDR2 features core clock speeds of 550 MHz on the GPU, and 500 MHz on the 256 MB of DDR2 memory. It features 32 SPUs along with 16 Texture Address Units and 8 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specs to the GeForce GT 210, which uses a 40 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 589 MHz. The DDR3 RAM works at a speed of 800 MHz on this particular card. It features 16 SPUs as well as 8 Texture Address Units and 4 ROPs.

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

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the GeForce 9500 GT DDR2 should be quite a bit faster than the GeForce GT 210 overall. (explain)

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

Texel Rate

The GeForce 9500 GT DDR2 is much (more or less 87%) more effective at anisotropic filtering 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%) better at full screen anti-aliasing than the GeForce GT 210, and capable of handling higher resolutions better. (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: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the better 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 per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the number of colour ROPs 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 fill rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
