GeForce 9800 GX2 vs GeForce GTX 1050 Ti

Intro

The GeForce 9800 GX2 makes use of a 65 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 600 MHz. The GDDR3 memory works at a frequency 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 clock speeds of 1290 MHz on the GPU, and 1750 MHz on the 4096 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 768 SPUs as well as 48 Texture Address Units and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 114688 MB/sec
Difference: 13312 (12%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce 9800 GX2 should be quite a bit (about 24%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti. (explain)

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 quite a bit (about 115%) more effective at anti-aliasing than the GeForce 9800 GX2, and also will be able to handle higher screen resolutions better. (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: Bandwidth is the largest amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface within a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total amount of 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 per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card can possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
