VS

GeForce 810M vs GeForce 8500 GT

Intro

The GeForce 810M has core clock speeds of 738 MHz on the GPU, and 900 MHz on the 1024 MB of DDR3 RAM. It features 48 SPUs as well as 8 Texture Address Units and 4 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all of that to the GeForce 8500 GT, which has GPU core speed of 450 MHz, and 512 MB of DDR2 memory running at 400 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is made up of 16 Stream Processors, 8 TAUs, and 4 ROPs.

GeForce 810M 5904 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 8500 GT 3600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 2304 (64%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce 810M should be quite a bit (more or less 64%) faster with regards to full screen anti-aliasing than the GeForce 8500 GT, and able to handle higher screen resolutions more effectively. (explain)

GeForce 810M 2952 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 8500 GT 1800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 1152 (64%)

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 data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core clock 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 processed in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the video card could 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 Render Output Units by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
