GeForce 9800 GTX vs GeForce GTX 1050 3GB

Intro

The GeForce 9800 GTX makes use of a 65 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 675 MHz. The GDDR3 memory runs at a frequency of 1100 MHz on this specific model. It features 128 SPUs as well as 64 Texture Address Units and 16 ROPs.

Compare that to the GeForce GTX 1050 3GB, which features a core clock frequency of 1392 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1750 MHz. It also uses a 96-bit bus, and makes use of a 14 nm design. It is made up of 768 SPUs, 48 TAUs, and 24 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be transported over the external memory interface in a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR memory, the result 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 AA, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the video card will be at handling 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 card could possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is calculated by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the core speed of the card. 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 is also dependant on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
