GeForce 8800 GTX vs GeForce GTX 1050 3GB

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GTX makes use of a 90 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 575 MHz. The GDDR3 memory works at a speed of 900 MHz on this specific model. It features 128 SPUs along with 64 TAUs and 24 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specifications to the GeForce GTX 1050 3GB, which uses a 14 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 1392 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a speed of 1750 MHz on this particular card. It features 768 SPUs as well as 48 TAUs and 24 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR type memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, the faster 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics chip can possibly write to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units 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 output rate is also dependant on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the max fill rate.
