GeForce GTX 1050 vs GeForce GTX 560

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1050 features core clock speeds of 1354 MHz on the GPU, and 1750 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 640 SPUs along with 40 TAUs and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all that to the GeForce GTX 560, which has a core clock frequency of 810 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1001 MHz. It also features a 256-bit bus, and uses a 40 nm design. It is comprised of 336 SPUs, 56 Texture Address Units, and 32 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in one second. The number is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the video card can possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
