VS

GeForce 8800 Ultra vs GeForce GTX 1050 Ti

Intro

The GeForce 8800 Ultra uses a 90 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 612 MHz. The GDDR3 RAM runs at a speed of 1080 MHz on this particular model. It features 128 SPUs as well as 64 Texture Address Units and 24 ROPs.

Compare those specs to the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, which has GPU core speed of 1290 MHz, and 4096 MB of GDDR5 RAM set to run at 1750 MHz through a 128-bit bus. It also is made up of 768 SPUs, 48 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the largest amount of information (counted in MB per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in one second. The number is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR 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 AA, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total number 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 applied per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card could possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate also depends on many other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to get to the maximum fill rate.
