GeForce GTX 1080 vs GeForce GTX 950

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1080 comes with a clock frequency of 1607 MHz and a GDDR5X memory speed of 1251 MHz. It also makes use of a 256-bit memory bus, and uses a 16 nm design. It is comprised of 2560 SPUs, 160 TAUs, and 64 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specifications to the GeForce GTX 950, which comes with a GPU core clock speed of 1024 MHz, and 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory set to run at 1652 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is made up of 768 Stream Processors, 48 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface within a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR memory, 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 higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card 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 per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the video card can possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the clock speed of the card. 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 rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.

Dear sir,
Could you please advise me that GeForce GTX 1080 graphic card is more appropriate or not for Pix4D software.
