GeForce GTX 1630 vs GeForce GTX 965M

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1630 comes with a clock speed of 1740 MHz and a GDDR6 memory frequency of 1500 MHz. It also uses a 64-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 12 nm design. It is comprised of 512 SPUs, 32 Texture Address Units, and 16 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the GeForce GTX 965M, which uses a 28 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 944 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a frequency of 1000 MHz on this card. It features 1024 SPUs along with 64 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

GeForce GTX 965M 64000 MB/sec
Difference: 34304 (54%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 965M is a bit (approximately 9%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the GeForce GTX 1630. (explain)

GeForce GTX 965M 60416 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 1630 55680 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 4736 (9%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 965M is superior to the GeForce GTX 1630, but only just. (explain)

GeForce GTX 965M 30208 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 1630 27840 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 2368 (9%)

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 max amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the 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 can be processed in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better 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 the video card can possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
