GeForce GT 1030 vs GeForce GTS 450 1GB

Intro

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

Compare that to the GeForce GTS 450 1GB, which features GPU clock speed of 783 MHz, and 1024 MB of GDDR5 RAM running at 902 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is comprised of 192 Stream Processors, 32 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the largest amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card could possibly write to its 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 the core 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 rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
