GeForce 920M vs GeForce GT 210

Intro

The GeForce 920M makes use of a 28 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 954 MHz. The DDR3 memory is set to run at a frequency of 900 MHz on this model. It features 384 SPUs as well as 32 TAUs and 8 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the GeForce GT 210, which has a core clock speed of 589 MHz and a DDR3 memory frequency of 800 MHz. It also uses a 64-bit bus, and makes use of a 40 nm design. It is made up of 16 SPUs, 8 Texture Address Units, and 4 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the GeForce 920M should perform a small bit faster than the GeForce GT 210 in general. (explain)

GeForce 920M 14400 MB/sec
GeForce GT 210 12800 MB/sec
Difference: 1600 (13%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 920M should be much (approximately 548%) better at texture filtering than the GeForce GT 210. (explain)

GeForce 920M 30528 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GT 210 4712 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 25816 (548%)

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce 920M is the winner, and very much so. (explain)

GeForce 920M 7632 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GT 210 2356 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 5276 (224%)

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 (in units of MB per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the video card can possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
