GeForce GTX 1630 vs GeForce GTX 980M

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1630 comes with a GPU core speed of 1740 MHz, and the 4096 MB of GDDR6 RAM runs at 1500 MHz through a 64-bit bus. It also features 512 Stream Processors, 32 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the GeForce GTX 980M, which uses a 28 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 1038 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a speed of 1000 MHz on this specific card. It features 1536 SPUs as well as 96 TAUs and 64 ROPs.

GeForce GTX 1630 98304 MB/sec
Difference: 29696 (30%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 980M will be quite a bit (about 79%) faster with regards to AF than the GeForce GTX 1630. (explain)

GeForce GTX 980M 99648 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 1630 55680 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 43968 (79%)

Pixel Rate

If using high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 980M is the winner, by far. (explain)

GeForce GTX 980M 66432 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 1630 27840 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 38592 (139%)

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 (measured in MB per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high 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 texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the 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 most pixels that the graphics card could possibly write to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
