GeForce GTX 1050 Ti vs GeForce GTX 280

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti has core 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.

Compare those specs to the GeForce GTX 280, which makes use of a 65 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 602 MHz. The GDDR3 memory is set to run at a frequency of 1107 MHz on this specific model. It features 240 SPUs as well as 80 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate also depends on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
