GeForce GT 1030 vs GeForce GT 440 1.5GB

Intro

The GeForce GT 1030 has a GPU core speed of 1265 MHz, and the 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory is set to run at 1502 MHz through a 64-bit bus. It also features 384 Stream Processors, 32 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the GeForce GT 440 1.5GB, which uses a 40 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 594 MHz. The GDDR3 memory works at a frequency of 900 MHz on this card. It features 144 SPUs along with 24 Texture Address Units and 24 ROPs.

GeForce GT 1030 49152 MB/sec
GeForce GT 440 1.5GB 43200 MB/sec
Difference: 5952 (14%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GT 1030 is a lot (approximately 184%) better at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GT 440 1.5GB. (explain)

GeForce GT 1030 40480 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GT 440 1.5GB 14256 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 26224 (184%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce GT 1030 is the winner, and very much so. (explain)

GeForce GT 1030 20240 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GT 440 1.5GB 14256 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 5984 (42%)

Please note that the above 'benchmarks' are all just theoretical - the results were calculated based on the card's specifications, and real-world performance may (and probably will) vary at least a bit.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (measured in megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface within a second. It's calculated by multiplying the interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The higher the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels the graphics card can 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 Render Output Units by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill 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 ability to reach the max fill rate.
