GeForce GTX 1050 3GB vs GeForce GTX 965M

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1050 3GB makes use of a 14 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 1392 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a frequency of 1750 MHz on this specific model. It features 768 SPUs as well as 48 Texture Address Units and 24 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare that to the GeForce GTX 965M, which has GPU clock speed of 944 MHz, and 2048 MB of GDDR5 RAM set to run at 1000 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also features 1024 SPUs, 64 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GTX 965M 60 Watts
GeForce GTX 1050 3GB 75 Watts
Difference: 15 Watts (25%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the GeForce GTX 1050 3GB is 34% quicker than the GeForce GTX 965M in general, due to its higher data rate. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 3GB 86016 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 965M 64000 MB/sec
Difference: 22016 (34%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1050 3GB will be a small bit (about 11%) more effective at texture filtering than the GeForce GTX 965M. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 3GB 66816 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 965M 60416 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 6400 (11%)

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 1050 3GB is a better choice, but it probably won't make a huge difference. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 3GB 33408 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 965M 30208 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 3200 (11%)

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 information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in a second. It's calculated by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses 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 higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card can possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
