GeForce GTX 1050 3GB vs GeForce GTX 460

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1050 3GB comes with a clock speed of 1392 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1750 MHz. It also uses a 96-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 14 nm design. It features 768 SPUs, 48 TAUs, and 24 Raster Operation Units.

Compare all of that to the GeForce GTX 460, which uses a 40 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 675 MHz. The GDDR5 memory runs at a speed of 900 MHz on this particular model. It features 336 SPUs along with 56 TAUs and 24 Rasterization Operator Units.

GeForce GTX 460 86400 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 1050 3GB 86016 MB/sec
Difference: 384 (0%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1050 3GB should be a lot (about 77%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTX 460. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 3GB 66816 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 460 37800 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 29016 (77%)

Pixel Rate

If running with lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 1050 3GB is the winner, by far. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 3GB 33408 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 460 16200 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 17208 (106%)

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 (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the video card could possibly write to its 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 the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel output rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
