GeForce 9800 GT 1GB vs GeForce GT 1030

Intro

The GeForce 9800 GT 1GB has a clock speed of 600 MHz and a GDDR3 memory frequency of 900 MHz. It also uses a 256-bit bus, and makes use of a 65/55 nm design. It is comprised of 112 SPUs, 56 TAUs, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specifications to the GeForce GT 1030, which uses a 16 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 1265 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM runs at a frequency of 1502 MHz on this card. It features 384 SPUs as well as 32 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

GeForce GT 1030 49152 MB/sec
Difference: 8448 (17%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GT 1030 is a little bit (approximately 20%) better at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce 9800 GT 1GB. (explain)

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

Pixel Rate

If using a high screen resolution is important to you, then the GeForce GT 1030 is the winner, and very much so. (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 maximum amount of information (measured in MB per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This is worked out by multiplying the total texture units by the core 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 in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. 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 rate is also dependant on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
