GeForce 9500 GT DDR2 vs GeForce GT 210

Intro

The GeForce 9500 GT DDR2 features a GPU clock speed of 550 MHz, and the 256 MB of DDR2 memory runs at 500 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is made up of 32 Stream Processors, 16 Texture Address Units, and 8 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the GeForce GT 210, which has a core clock speed of 589 MHz and a DDR3 memory speed of 800 MHz. It also makes use of a 64-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 40 nm design. It is made up of 16 SPUs, 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

Theoretically speaking, the GeForce 9500 GT DDR2 will be 25% quicker than the GeForce GT 210 in general, because of its higher data rate. (explain)

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

Texel Rate

The GeForce 9500 GT DDR2 will be quite a bit (about 87%) more effective 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

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce 9500 GT DDR2 is a better choice, and very much so. (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 maximum amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, 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 number of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the 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 number of pixels the video card can possibly write to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes 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, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
