GeForce GT 1030 vs GeForce GTS 450

Intro

The GeForce GT 1030 features a GPU core speed of 1265 MHz, and the 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM runs at 1502 MHz through a 64-bit bus. It also is comprised of 384 Stream Processors, 32 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Compare all that to the GeForce GTS 450, which comes with a core clock speed of 783 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 902 MHz. It also uses a 128-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 40 nm design. It is comprised of 192 SPUs, 32 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

GeForce GTS 450 57728 MB/sec
GeForce GT 1030 49152 MB/sec
Difference: 8576 (17%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GT 1030 will be a lot (approximately 62%) better at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTS 450. (explain)

GeForce GT 1030 40480 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTS 450 25056 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 15424 (62%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GT 1030 should be much (more or less 62%) faster with regards to anti-aliasing than the GeForce GTS 450, and should be able to handle higher screen resolutions while still performing well. (explain)

GeForce GT 1030 20240 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTS 450 12528 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 7712 (62%)

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 largest amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are applied 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 the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at 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 that the graphics card can possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
