The GeForce GT 1030 is a small bit (approximately 20%) faster with regards to AF than the GeForce 9800 GT 512MB. (explain)

GeForce GT 1030 40480 Mtexels/sec
GeForce 9800 GT 512MB 33600 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 6880 (20%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GT 1030 should be much (more or less 111%) faster with regards to FSAA than the GeForce 9800 GT 512MB, and able to handle higher screen resolutions more effectively. (explain)

GeForce GT 1030 20240 Mpixels/sec
GeForce 9800 GT 512MB 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 largest amount of data (counted in MB per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total 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 applied in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the graphics card can possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel 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.
