GeForce 9800 GT 512MB vs GeForce GTX 1050 3GB

Intro

The GeForce 9800 GT 512MB makes use of a 65/55 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 600 MHz. The GDDR3 memory works at a frequency of 900 MHz on this specific card. It features 112 SPUs as well as 56 TAUs and 16 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specifications to the GeForce GTX 1050 3GB, which has a core clock speed of 1392 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1750 MHz. It also uses a 96-bit memory bus, and uses a 14 nm design. It is made up of 768 SPUs, 48 TAUs, and 24 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the 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 amount of texture map elements (texels) that are applied in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the graphics card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
