GeForce GTX 1650 vs GeForce GTX 280

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1650 has a GPU clock speed of 1485 MHz, and the 4096 MB of GDDR5 RAM runs at 8000 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also features 896 Stream Processors, 56 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specs to the GeForce GTX 280, which comes with GPU clock speed of 602 MHz, and 1024 MB of GDDR3 memory running at 1107 MHz through a 512-bit bus. It also is comprised of 240 SPUs, 80 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of information (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in one second. It's worked out by multiplying the interface width by its memory clock speed. If the card has DDR memory, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the card's memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that are applied per second. This number is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly write to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core speed of the card. 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 quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
