GeForce GT 1030 vs Radeon HD 4790

Intro

The GeForce GT 1030 has core clock speeds of 1265 MHz on the GPU, and 1502 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 384 SPUs along with 32 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Compare all that to the Radeon HD 4790, which comes with a core clock frequency of 600 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 800 MHz. It also makes use of a 256-bit bus, and uses a 55 nm design. It is comprised of 640(128x5) SPUs, 32 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the Radeon HD 4790 should perform much faster than the GeForce GT 1030 overall. (explain)

Radeon HD 4790 102400 MB/sec
GeForce GT 1030 49152 MB/sec
Difference: 53248 (108%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GT 1030 will be a lot (about 111%) more effective at AF than the Radeon HD 4790. (explain)

GeForce GT 1030 40480 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 4790 19200 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 21280 (111%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GT 1030 should be quite a bit (more or less 111%) more effective at full screen anti-aliasing than the Radeon HD 4790, and also should be able to handle higher screen resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

GeForce GT 1030 20240 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 4790 9600 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 10640 (111%)

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 data (in units of MB per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be processed 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 better this number, the better the 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 amount of pixels the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
