GeForce GT 1030 vs GeForce GTX 1050 Ti

Intro

The GeForce GT 1030 makes use of a 16 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 1265 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a frequency of 1502 MHz on this specific card. It features 384 SPUs as well as 32 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, which has a core clock frequency of 1290 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1750 MHz. It also features a 128-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 14 nm design. It is comprised of 768 SPUs, 48 Texture Address Units, and 32 ROPs.

In theory, the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti will be 133% faster than the GeForce GT 1030 in general, because of its greater data rate. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 114688 MB/sec
GeForce GT 1030 49152 MB/sec
Difference: 65536 (133%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti should be much (more or less 53%) faster with regards to texture filtering than the GeForce GT 1030. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 61920 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GT 1030 40480 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 21440 (53%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high screen resolution is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti is a better choice, by far. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 41280 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GT 1030 20240 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 21040 (104%)

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 maximum amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the video card can possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
