GeForce GTX 1050 3GB vs GeForce GTX 950

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1050 3GB features core speeds of 1392 MHz on the GPU, and 1750 MHz on the 3072 MB of GDDR5 RAM. It features 768 SPUs as well as 48 Texture Address Units and 24 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specifications to the GeForce GTX 950, which has core speeds of 1024 MHz on the GPU, and 1652 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 768 SPUs along with 48 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce GTX 1050 3GB 75 Watts
GeForce GTX 950 90 Watts
Difference: 15 Watts (20%)

Memory Bandwidth

The GeForce GTX 950, in theory, should be quite a bit faster than the GeForce GTX 1050 3GB in general. (explain)

GeForce GTX 950 105728 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 1050 3GB 86016 MB/sec
Difference: 19712 (23%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1050 3GB is a lot (approximately 36%) better at AF than the GeForce GTX 950. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 3GB 66816 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 950 49152 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 17664 (36%)

Pixel Rate

If using 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 950 32768 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 640 (2%)

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 data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface within a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 once 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 are processed in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the video 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 could possibly write to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
