GeForce GTX 1050 3GB vs Radeon HD 3470 512MB

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1050 3GB has a GPU clock speed of 1392 MHz, and the 3072 MB of GDDR5 memory is set to run at 1750 MHz through a 96-bit bus. It also is made up of 768 Stream Processors, 48 Texture Address Units, and 24 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the Radeon HD 3470 512MB, which uses a 55 nm design. AMD has set the core frequency at 800 MHz. The GDDR3 RAM works at a speed of 950 MHz on this particular card. It features 40(8x5) SPUs as well as 4 TAUs and 4 Rasterization Operator Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface within a second. The number is calculated by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR type memory, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the better 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 texture map elements (texels) that are processed per second. This is worked out by multiplying the total number of 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 handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip can possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
