GeForce GT 430 1GB vs GeForce GTX Titan

Intro

The GeForce GT 430 1GB has clock speeds of 700 MHz on the GPU, and 900 MHz on the 1024 MB of GDDR3 RAM. It features 96 SPUs along with 16 TAUs and 4 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the GeForce GTX Titan, which features a core clock speed of 837 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1502 MHz. It also uses a 384-bit bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It features 2688 SPUs, 224 Texture Address Units, and 48 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GT 430 1GB 60 Watts
GeForce GTX Titan 250 Watts
Difference: 190 Watts (317%)

Memory Bandwidth

The GeForce GTX Titan should theoretically perform a lot faster than the GeForce GT 430 1GB in general. (explain)

GeForce GTX Titan 288384 MB/sec
GeForce GT 430 1GB 28800 MB/sec
Difference: 259584 (901%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX Titan should be quite a bit (about 1574%) more effective at AF than the GeForce GT 430 1GB. (explain)

GeForce GTX Titan 187488 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GT 430 1GB 11200 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 176288 (1574%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce GTX Titan is superior to the GeForce GT 430 1GB, and very much so. (explain)

GeForce GTX Titan 40176 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GT 430 1GB 2800 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 37376 (1335%)

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 megabytes per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, the faster 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 by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the core 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 fill rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
