Hellosailor, comparing only 3/16th material, ( this is my frame size ) the tempered is equivalent to what you would find in a driver or passenger door window ( DOT std 615 )

my windows are small, ranging from 8x21 down to 4x17 so that added to the rating, it would take a hufty blown to break the window

But, like I said, I did the whole vs thing when I replaced them and it came down to MR-10 vs tempered and the final factor was scatches and cost, tempered was less expensive and is/will be more readily available if needed
