GeForce GTX 1060 3GB vs GeForce GTX 285 1GB


Intro

The GeForce GTX 1060 3GB comes with a GPU core clock speed of 1506 MHz, and the 3072 MB of GDDR5 memory is set to run at 2000 MHz through a 192-bit bus. It also features 1152 Stream Processors, 72 TAUs, and 48 ROPs.

Compare that to the GeForce GTX 285 1GB, which makes use of a 55 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 648 MHz. The GDDR3 RAM is set to run at a speed of 1242 MHz on this card. It features 240 SPUs as well as 80 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the largest amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface within a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's 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 texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the video 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 could possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
