GeForce 8800 GTS (G80) 320MB vs GeForce GTX 1050 3GB

Intro

The GeForce 8800 GTS (G80) 320MB has a GPU core clock speed of 513 MHz, and the 320 MB of GDDR3 memory is set to run at 792 MHz through a 320-bit bus. It also is made up of 96 Stream Processors, 48 TAUs, and 20 ROPs.

Compare all that to the GeForce GTX 1050 3GB, which uses a 14 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 1392 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a speed of 1750 MHz on this specific model. It features 768 SPUs along with 48 TAUs and 24 Rasterization Operator Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transferred over the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. In the case of DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better 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 processed in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher this number, the better the 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 number of pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of colour ROPs by the the core 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 output 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 potential to reach the maximum fill rate.
