GeForce GTX 1050 3GB vs GeForce GTX 550 Ti

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 works at a speed of 1750 MHz on this specific card. It features 768 SPUs along with 48 Texture Address Units and 24 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specs to the GeForce GTX 550 Ti, which features a clock frequency of 900 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1026 MHz. It also features a 192-bit bus, and uses a 40 nm design. It is comprised of 192 SPUs, 32 TAUs, and 24 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the max amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in a second. It is calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR type RAM, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly write to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called 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, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
