GeForce GTX 1050 Ti vs Radeon HD 4870 1GB

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti makes use of a 14 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 1290 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a speed of 1750 MHz on this particular model. It features 768 SPUs along with 48 Texture Address Units and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specs to the Radeon HD 4870 1GB, which makes use of a 55 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 750 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM runs at a speed of 900 MHz on this specific card. It features 800(160x5) SPUs along with 40 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in one second. It is worked out by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the graphics 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 most 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 calculated by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
