GeForce GT 1030 vs Geforce GTX 690

Intro

The GeForce GT 1030 has a clock speed of 1265 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1502 MHz. It also features a 64-bit memory bus, and uses a 16 nm design. It is made up of 384 SPUs, 32 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specifications to the Geforce GTX 690, which comes with a core clock frequency of 915 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1502 MHz. It also makes use of a 256-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It is made up of 1536 SPUs, 128 TAUs, and 32 ROPs.

The Geforce GTX 690 is much (about 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

If running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the Geforce GTX 690 is a better choice, by far. (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 max amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in a second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. 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 higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the graphics card can possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
