GeForce 8800 GS vs GeForce GT 210

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GS features clock speeds of 550 MHz on the GPU, and 800 MHz on the 384 MB of GDDR3 RAM. It features 96 SPUs as well as 48 Texture Address Units and 12 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the GeForce GT 210, which comes with core speeds of 589 MHz on the GPU, and 800 MHz on the 512 MB of DDR3 RAM. It features 16 SPUs as well as 8 Texture Address Units and 4 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GT 210 31 Watts
GeForce 8800 GS 105 Watts
Difference: 74 Watts (239%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically, the GeForce 8800 GS should perform quite a bit faster than the GeForce GT 210 in general. (explain)

GeForce 8800 GS 38400 MB/sec
GeForce GT 210 12800 MB/sec
Difference: 25600 (200%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 8800 GS should be a lot (more or less 460%) more effective at AF than the GeForce GT 210. (explain)

GeForce 8800 GS 26400 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GT 210 4712 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 21688 (460%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high resolution is important to you, then the GeForce 8800 GS is superior to the GeForce GT 210, by a large margin. (explain)

GeForce 8800 GS 6600 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GT 210 2356 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 4244 (180%)

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 max amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface within a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in a second.

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