GeForce GTX 1050 Ti vs GeForce GTX 260 Core 216

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti comes with a core clock speed of 1290 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1750 MHz. It also uses a 128-bit bus, and uses a 14 nm design. It is comprised of 768 SPUs, 48 Texture Address Units, and 32 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the GeForce GTX 260 Core 216, which comes with GPU clock speed of 576 MHz, and 896 MB of GDDR3 RAM running at 999 MHz through a 448-bit bus. It also features 216 Stream Processors, 72 Texture Address Units, and 28 ROPs.

GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 111888 MB/sec
Difference: 2800 (3%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti will be quite a bit (approximately 49%) better at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTX 260 Core 216. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 61920 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 41472 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 20448 (49%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti is the winner, by a large margin. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 41280 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 16128 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 25152 (156%)

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: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface within a second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in a second.

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