GeForce GTX 1050 vs GeForce GTX 470

Intro

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

Compare those specifications to the GeForce GTX 470, which uses a 40 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 607 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a frequency of 837 MHz on this particular card. It features 448 SPUs as well as 56 Texture Address Units and 40 Rasterization Operator Units.

GeForce GTX 470 133920 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 1050 114688 MB/sec
Difference: 19232 (17%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1050 should be a lot (more or less 59%) more effective at AF than the GeForce GTX 470. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 54160 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 470 33992 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 20168 (59%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1050 will be quite a bit (more or less 78%) better at full screen anti-aliasing than the GeForce GTX 470, and also should be capable of handling higher resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 43328 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 470 24280 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 19048 (78%)

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: Bandwidth is the max amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel 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 potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
