GeForce GTX 1050 3GB vs GeForce GTX 1660 Ti

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1050 3GB makes use of a 14 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core frequency at 1392 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM works at a speed of 1750 MHz on this particular model. It features 768 SPUs as well as 48 TAUs and 24 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specs to the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, which has core clock speeds of 1500 MHz on the GPU, and 12000 MHz on the 6144 MB of GDDR6 memory. It features 1536 SPUs as well as 96 TAUs and 48 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the max amount of information (in units of MB per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface within a second. It's calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher 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 can be processed in one second. This is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units of the card 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 per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
