GeForce GTX 1050 3GB vs GeForce GTX 860M

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1050 3GB comes with a clock speed of 1392 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1750 MHz. It also uses a 96-bit bus, and makes use of a 14 nm design. It is made up of 768 SPUs, 48 Texture Address Units, and 24 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specs to the GeForce GTX 860M, which comes with clock speeds of 797 MHz on the GPU, and 1000 MHz on the 4096 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 1152 SPUs as well as 96 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

GeForce GTX 860M 64000 MB/sec
Difference: 22016 (34%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 860M should be just a bit (about 15%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTX 1050 3GB. (explain)

GeForce GTX 860M 76512 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 1050 3GB 66816 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 9696 (15%)

Pixel Rate

If running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 1050 3GB is superior to the GeForce GTX 860M, by far. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 3GB 33408 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 860M 12752 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 20656 (162%)

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 (measured in MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface within a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the bandwidth is, the faster 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher 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 number of pixels the video card could possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of Render Output Units by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as 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, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
