GeForce GTX 1050 3GB vs Radeon HD 3470 512MB

Intro

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

Compare all that to the Radeon HD 3470 512MB, which has a GPU core clock speed of 800 MHz, and 512 MB of GDDR3 RAM running at 950 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also features 40(8x5) Stream Processors, 4 TAUs, and 4 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the GeForce GTX 1050 3GB will be 183% faster than the Radeon HD 3470 512MB overall, because of its higher bandwidth. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 3GB 86016 MB/sec
Radeon HD 3470 512MB 30400 MB/sec
Difference: 55616 (183%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1050 3GB should be a lot (more or less 1988%) better at texture filtering than the Radeon HD 3470 512MB. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 3GB 66816 Mtexels/sec
Radeon HD 3470 512MB 3200 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 63616 (1988%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high resolution is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 1050 3GB is superior to the Radeon HD 3470 512MB, and very much so. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 3GB 33408 Mpixels/sec
Radeon HD 3470 512MB 3200 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 30208 (944%)

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 maximum amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the video card can possibly write to its local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate is also dependant on many 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.
