GeForce GTX 1050 vs GeForce GTX 260 Core 216

Intro

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

Compare those specifications to the GeForce GTX 260 Core 216, which comes with GPU clock speed of 576 MHz, and 896 MB of GDDR3 memory set to run at 999 MHz through a 448-bit bus. It also is made up of 216 SPUs, 72 TAUs, and 28 ROPs.

GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 111888 MB/sec
Difference: 2800 (3%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1050 should be much (more or less 31%) more effective at texture filtering than the GeForce GTX 260 Core 216. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 54160 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 41472 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 12688 (31%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high screen resolution is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 1050 is the winner, by far. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 43328 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 16128 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 27200 (169%)

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: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface within a second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, 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 are applied in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends 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.
