GeForce RTX 3050 vs Geforce GTX 760

Intro

The GeForce RTX 3050 makes use of a 8 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 1552 MHz. The GDDR6 RAM runs at a speed of 1750 MHz on this card. It features 2560 SPUs along with 80 Texture Address Units and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare those specs to the Geforce GTX 760, which uses a 28 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 980 MHz. The GDDR5 memory is set to run at a frequency of 1502 MHz on this model. It features 1152 SPUs as well as 96 Texture Address Units and 32 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

GeForce RTX 3050 130 Watts
Geforce GTX 760 170 Watts
Difference: 40 Watts (31%)

Memory Bandwidth

Performance-wise, the GeForce RTX 3050 should in theory be just a bit superior to the Geforce GTX 760 overall. (explain)

GeForce RTX 3050 229376 MB/sec
Geforce GTX 760 192256 MB/sec
Difference: 37120 (19%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce RTX 3050 will be a lot (more or less 32%) better at AF than the Geforce GTX 760. (explain)

GeForce RTX 3050 124160 Mtexels/sec
Geforce GTX 760 94080 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 30080 (32%)

Pixel Rate

If running with high levels of AA is important to you, then the GeForce RTX 3050 is a better choice, by far. (explain)

GeForce RTX 3050 49664 Mpixels/sec
Geforce GTX 760 31360 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 18304 (58%)

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: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be moved past the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If 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, HDR and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum number of texture map elements (texels) that are processed in one second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the video 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 that the graphics card can possibly record to its local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the amount of Render Output Units by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel rate is also dependant on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to get to the max fill rate.
