GeForce GT 1030 vs Geforce GTX 690

Intro

The GeForce GT 1030 comes with clock speeds of 1265 MHz on the GPU, and 1502 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 384 SPUs as well as 32 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare that to the Geforce GTX 690, which features a core clock frequency of 915 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1502 MHz. It also features a 256-bit memory bus, and uses a 28 nm design. It is made up of 1536 SPUs, 128 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

GeForce GT 1030 49152 MB/sec
Difference: 335360 (682%)

Texel Rate

The Geforce GTX 690 will be quite a bit (approximately 479%) better at AF than the GeForce GT 1030. (explain)

Geforce GTX 690 234240 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GT 1030 40480 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 193760 (479%)

Pixel Rate

The Geforce GTX 690 is much (approximately 189%) better at FSAA than the GeForce GT 1030, and also capable of handling higher resolutions while still performing well. (explain)

Geforce GTX 690 58560 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GT 1030 20240 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 38320 (189%)

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.

One or more cards in this comparison are multi-core. This means that their bandwidth, texel and pixel rates are theoretically doubled - this does not mean the card will actually perform twice as fast, but only that it should in theory be able to. Actual game benchmarks will give a more accurate idea of what it's capable of.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's 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 texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card 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 in a second.

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