GeForce GTX 1050 3GB vs GeForce GTX 1630

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1050 3GB features a clock speed of 1392 MHz and a GDDR5 memory frequency of 1750 MHz. It also makes use of a 96-bit memory bus, and uses a 14 nm design. It is made up of 768 SPUs, 48 Texture Address Units, and 24 Raster Operation Units.

Compare those specs to the GeForce GTX 1630, which has GPU core speed of 1740 MHz, and 4096 MB of GDDR6 memory running at 1500 MHz through a 64-bit bus. It also is comprised of 512 SPUs, 32 TAUs, and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Both cards have the same power consumption.

Memory Bandwidth

Performance-wise, the GeForce GTX 1630 should in theory be a bit better than the GeForce GTX 1050 3GB in general. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1630 98304 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 1050 3GB 86016 MB/sec
Difference: 12288 (14%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1050 3GB should be just a bit (about 20%) better at anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTX 1630. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 3GB 66816 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 1630 55680 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 11136 (20%)

Pixel Rate

If running with a high screen resolution is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 1050 3GB is superior to the GeForce GTX 1630, though not by far. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 3GB 33408 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 1630 27840 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 5568 (20%)

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 (counted in MB per second) that can be moved over the external memory interface within a second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If the card has DDR RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, HDR and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be processed in one second. This number is worked out by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core speed of the chip. The better this number, the better the video card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum number of pixels that the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the amount of ROPs by the the core speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also called Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel output rate is also dependant 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 maximum fill rate.
