GeForce GT 1030 vs GeForce GT 210

Intro

The GeForce GT 1030 uses a 16 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 1265 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM runs at a speed of 1502 MHz on this particular model. It features 384 SPUs along with 32 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the GeForce GT 210, which comes with a clock speed of 589 MHz and a DDR3 memory frequency of 800 MHz. It also uses a 64-bit bus, and makes use of a 40 nm design. It is made up of 16 SPUs, 8 TAUs, and 4 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in a second. It is worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, 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 processed in one second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, 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 amount of pixels the video card can possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
