GeForce GTX 1050 3GB vs GeForce GTX 970M

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1050 3GB features a GPU core speed of 1392 MHz, and the 3072 MB of GDDR5 memory runs at 1750 MHz through a 96-bit bus. It also is made up of 768 SPUs, 48 TAUs, and 24 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all of that to the GeForce GTX 970M, which makes use of a 28 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 924 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a speed of 1000 MHz on this specific model. It features 1280 SPUs along with 80 Texture Address Units and 48 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Both cards have the same power consumption.

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the GeForce GTX 970M is 12% quicker than the GeForce GTX 1050 3GB in general, due to its greater data rate. (explain)

GeForce GTX 970M 96000 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 1050 3GB 86016 MB/sec
Difference: 9984 (12%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 970M is a little bit (approximately 11%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTX 1050 3GB. (explain)

GeForce GTX 970M 73920 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 1050 3GB 66816 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 7104 (11%)

Pixel Rate

The GeForce GTX 970M is a lot (approximately 33%) faster with regards to full screen anti-aliasing than the GeForce GTX 1050 3GB, and able to handle higher screen resolutions without losing too much performance. (explain)

GeForce GTX 970M 44352 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 1050 3GB 33408 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 10944 (33%)

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 (counted in MB per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface within a second. It's calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the graphics card will be at handling 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 graphics card can possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the amount of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core 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 output rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
