GeForce GT 1030 vs GeForce GT 240 GDDR5

Intro

The GeForce GT 1030 comes with a clock speed of 1265 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1502 MHz. It also features a 64-bit bus, and makes use of a 16 nm design. It features 384 SPUs, 32 Texture Address Units, and 16 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the GeForce GT 240 GDDR5, which comes with a GPU core clock speed of 550 MHz, and 512 MB of GDDR5 memory set to run at 850 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is made up of 96 SPUs, 32 Texture Address Units, and 8 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GT 1030 30 Watts
GeForce GT 240 GDDR5 70 Watts
Difference: 40 Watts (133%)

Memory Bandwidth

The GeForce GT 240 GDDR5 should in theory be a small bit faster than the GeForce GT 1030 in general. (explain)

GeForce GT 240 GDDR5 54400 MB/sec
GeForce GT 1030 49152 MB/sec
Difference: 5248 (11%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GT 1030 should be much (more or less 130%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GT 240 GDDR5. (explain)

GeForce GT 1030 40480 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GT 240 GDDR5 17600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 22880 (130%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GT 1030 should be quite a bit (about 360%) more effective at FSAA than the GeForce GT 240 GDDR5, and also should be capable of handling higher screen resolutions without slowing down too much. (explain)

GeForce GT 1030 20240 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GT 240 GDDR5 4400 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 15840 (360%)

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 maximum amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in one second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the video card can possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
