GeForce GTX 1050 vs GeForce GTX 560 Ti

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1050 makes use of a 14 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 1354 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a speed of 1750 MHz on this specific card. It features 640 SPUs along with 40 Texture Address Units and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare that to the GeForce GTX 560 Ti, which makes use of a 40 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 822 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM is set to run at a speed of 1002 MHz on this specific model. It features 384 SPUs as well as 64 Texture Address Units and 32 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in a second. It's calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better 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 in one second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the video card can possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka 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 of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.

Well i have both cards and the gtx 560 ti way out performs the 1050.The 1050 barely plays any of the games I like on low settings and the 560 plays them fine on medium to high yet all the reviews say otherwise
