GeForce GTX 1050 vs GeForce GTX 460 2GB

Intro

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

Compare all of that to the GeForce GTX 460 2GB, which features a core clock frequency of 675 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 900 MHz. It also uses a 256-bit bus, and uses a 40 nm design. It is made up of 336 SPUs, 56 Texture Address Units, and 32 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This figure is calculated 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 handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
