GeForce 8800 Ultra vs GeForce GTX 1050

Intro

The GeForce 8800 Ultra comes with a GPU clock speed of 612 MHz, and the 768 MB of GDDR3 memory is set to run at 1080 MHz through a 384-bit bus. It also is made up of 128 SPUs, 64 TAUs, and 24 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specifications to the GeForce GTX 1050, which uses a 14 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 1354 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM works at a speed of 1750 MHz on this specific card. It features 640 SPUs as well as 40 TAUs and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GTX 1050 75 Watts
GeForce 8800 Ultra 171 Watts
Difference: 96 Watts (128%)

Memory Bandwidth

Performance-wise, the GeForce GTX 1050 should in theory be a small bit superior to the GeForce 8800 Ultra in general. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 114688 MB/sec
GeForce 8800 Ultra 103680 MB/sec
Difference: 11008 (11%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1050 is quite a bit (approximately 38%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce 8800 Ultra. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 54160 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 8800 Ultra 39168 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 14992 (38%)

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 1050 is a better choice, by far. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 43328 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 8800 Ultra 14688 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 28640 (195%)

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 information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface within a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This is worked out by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the card will be at 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 the graphics card could possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number 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 filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
