GeForce 9800 GT 1GB vs GeForce GT 1030

Intro

The GeForce 9800 GT 1GB features a clock speed of 600 MHz and a GDDR3 memory speed of 900 MHz. It also uses a 256-bit memory bus, and uses a 65/55 nm design. It features 112 SPUs, 56 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the GeForce GT 1030, which uses a 16 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 1265 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a frequency of 1502 MHz on this particular card. It features 384 SPUs as well as 32 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

GeForce GT 1030 40480 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 9800 GT 1GB 33600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 6880 (20%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GT 1030 is quite a bit (more or less 111%) faster with regards to FSAA than the GeForce 9800 GT 1GB, and will be able to handle higher screen resolutions better. (explain)

GeForce GT 1030 20240 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 9800 GT 1GB 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: Bandwidth is the max amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in a second. It is worked out by multiplying the bus width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in one 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 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 outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
