GeForce RTX 3050 vs Geforce GTX 770

Intro

The GeForce RTX 3050 makes use of a 8 nm design. nVidia has set the core frequency at 1552 MHz. The GDDR6 memory is set to run at a frequency of 1750 MHz on this specific model. It features 2560 SPUs along with 80 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Compare that to the Geforce GTX 770, which comes with a core clock speed of 1046 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1753 MHz. It also features a 256-bit bus, and makes use of a 28 nm design. It is made up of 1536 SPUs, 128 TAUs, and 32 Raster Operation Units.

GeForce RTX 3050 130 Watts
Geforce GTX 770 230 Watts
Difference: 100 Watts (77%)

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the GeForce RTX 3050 will be 2% quicker than the Geforce GTX 770 in general, because of its greater data rate. (explain)

GeForce RTX 3050 229376 MB/sec
Geforce GTX 770 224384 MB/sec
Difference: 4992 (2%)

Texel Rate

The Geforce GTX 770 is just a bit (about 8%) more effective at texture filtering than the GeForce RTX 3050. (explain)

Geforce GTX 770 133888 Mtexels/sec
GeForce RTX 3050 124160 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 9728 (8%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high resolution is important to you, then the GeForce RTX 3050 is the winner, by far. (explain)

GeForce RTX 3050 49664 Mpixels/sec
Geforce GTX 770 33472 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 16192 (48%)

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 largest amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the interface width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR RAM, it should 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 anti-aliasing, HDR 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 number is calculated by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels the graphics card can possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is worked out by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as 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 memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
