GeForce GTX 1050 Ti vs GeForce GTX 460 SE

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti comes with a clock frequency of 1290 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1750 MHz. It also makes use of a 128-bit memory bus, and uses a 14 nm design. It is made up of 768 SPUs, 48 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specs to the GeForce GTX 460 SE, which comes with a clock speed of 650 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 850 MHz. It also makes use of a 256-bit bus, and makes use of a 40 nm design. It features 288 SPUs, 48 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the max amount of information (measured in megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in one second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's 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 figure is calculated by multiplying the total amount 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 in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the maximum fill rate.
