GeForce 9800 GT 1GB vs GeForce GTX 1050 3GB

Intro

The GeForce 9800 GT 1GB has a GPU core clock speed of 600 MHz, and the 1024 MB of GDDR3 memory runs at 900 MHz through a 256-bit bus. It also features 112 Stream Processors, 56 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the GeForce GTX 1050 3GB, which comes with a GPU core clock speed of 1392 MHz, and 3072 MB of GDDR5 memory running at 1750 MHz through a 96-bit bus. It also is made up of 768 Stream Processors, 48 TAUs, and 24 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the bandwidth is, the better 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the number of colour 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 also depends on lots of other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
