GeForce GT 1030 vs Radeon HD 4830 1GB

Intro

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

Compare that to the Radeon HD 4830 1GB, which has GPU core speed of 575 MHz, and 1024 MB of GDDR4 memory set to run at 900 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also is comprised of 640(128x5) Stream Processors, 32 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth

Performance-wise, the Radeon HD 4830 1GB should in theory be a small bit better than the GeForce GT 1030 in general. (explain)

Radeon HD 4830 1GB 57600 MB/sec
GeForce GT 1030 49152 MB/sec
Difference: 8448 (17%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GT 1030 should be a lot (about 120%) better at AF than the Radeon HD 4830 1GB. (explain)

GeForce GT 1030 40480 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 4830 1GB 18400 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 22080 (120%)

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce GT 1030 is the winner, by far. (explain)

GeForce GT 1030 20240 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 4830 1GB 9200 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 11040 (120%)

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 max amount of data (in units of MB per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total texture units 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 applied in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the video card can possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
