GeForce 8800 GT 256MB vs GeForce GTX 1050 Ti

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GT 256MB has a GPU clock speed of 600 MHz, and the 256 MB of GDDR3 RAM runs at 700 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also features 112 SPUs, 56 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, which has core speeds of 1290 MHz on the GPU, and 1750 MHz on the 4096 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 768 SPUs along with 48 TAUs and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (measured in 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 speed. If the card has DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card could possibly write 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 core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
