GeForce GTX 1050 Ti vs Radeon HD 3870 X2 1GB

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti features a clock frequency of 1290 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1750 MHz. It also features a 128-bit memory bus, and uses a 14 nm design. It is comprised of 768 SPUs, 48 TAUs, and 32 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the Radeon HD 3870 X2 1GB, which comes with a GPU core clock speed of 825 MHz, and 1024 MB of GDDR4 RAM set to run at 1126 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also features 320(64x5) Stream Processors, 16 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

The Radeon HD 3870 X2 1GB should in theory be a lot faster than the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti in general. (explain)

Radeon HD 3870 X2 1GB 144128 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 114688 MB/sec
Difference: 29440 (26%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti is quite a bit (more or less 135%) better at anisotropic filtering than the Radeon HD 3870 X2 1GB. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 61920 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 3870 X2 1GB 26400 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 35520 (135%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high resolution is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti is superior to the Radeon HD 3870 X2 1GB, by a large margin. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 41280 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 3870 X2 1GB 26400 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 14880 (56%)

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.

One or more cards in this comparison are multi-core. This means that their bandwidth, texel and pixel rates are theoretically doubled - this does not mean the card will actually perform twice as fast, but only that it should in theory be able to. Actual game benchmarks will give a more accurate idea of what it's capable of.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the largest amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses 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 high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, 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 most pixels the video card can possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output 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 maximum fill rate.
