GeForce GT 450 (OEM) vs GeForce GTX 1050

Intro

The GeForce GT 450 (OEM) makes use of a 40 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 790 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM is set to run at a speed of 1000 MHz on this model. It features 144 SPUs as well as 24 Texture Address Units and 24 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the GeForce GTX 1050, which uses a 14 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 1354 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a frequency of 1750 MHz on this model. It features 640 SPUs as well as 40 Texture Address Units and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the max amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the bandwidth is, 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 can be processed per second. This is calculated by multiplying the total texture units by the core clock 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 maximum amount of pixels the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
