GeForce GTX 1050 vs GeForce GTX 285 1GB

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1050 comes with 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 specs to the GeForce GTX 285 1GB, which features a clock speed of 648 MHz and a GDDR3 memory frequency of 1242 MHz. It also uses a 512-bit bus, and makes use of a 55 nm design. It is comprised of 240 SPUs, 80 Texture Address Units, and 32 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface in a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
