GeForce GTX 1050 3GB vs GeForce GTX 470

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1050 3GB comes with a GPU core speed of 1392 MHz, and the 3072 MB of GDDR5 RAM is set to run at 1750 MHz through a 96-bit bus. It also is comprised of 768 SPUs, 48 TAUs, and 24 ROPs.

Compare all that to the GeForce GTX 470, which uses a 40 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 607 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM works at a frequency of 837 MHz on this model. It features 448 SPUs along with 56 TAUs and 40 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the max amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This is calculated by multiplying the total 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 applied per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics chip can possibly write to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the card's clock speed. 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 output rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
