GeForce 810M vs GeForce GT 210

Intro

The GeForce 810M has a GPU core speed of 738 MHz, and the 1024 MB of DDR3 RAM runs at 900 MHz through a 64-bit bus. It also is comprised of 48 SPUs, 8 TAUs, and 4 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specifications to the GeForce GT 210, which has core clock 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 Rasterization Operator Units.

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

Texel Rate

The GeForce 810M is a lot (approximately 25%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GT 210. (explain)

GeForce 810M 5904 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GT 210 4712 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 1192 (25%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce 810M should be much (more or less 25%) faster with regards to AA than the GeForce GT 210, and also should be able to handle higher screen resolutions while still performing well. (explain)

GeForce 810M 2952 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GT 210 2356 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 596 (25%)

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 MB per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the graphics card could possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the card's 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 - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
