GeForce 9800 GX2 vs GeForce GTX 1050 Ti

Intro

The GeForce 9800 GX2 makes use of a 65 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 600 MHz. The GDDR3 memory works at a speed of 1000 MHz on this particular model. It features 128 SPUs as well as 64 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Compare that to the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, which has GPU core speed of 1290 MHz, and 4096 MB of GDDR5 memory set to run at 1750 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also features 768 Stream Processors, 48 TAUs, and 32 ROPs.

GeForce 9800 GX2 76800 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 61920 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 14880 (24%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti will be a lot (more or less 115%) more effective at FSAA than the GeForce 9800 GX2, and also able to handle higher screen resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 41280 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 9800 GX2 19200 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 22080 (115%)

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: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core 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 in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
