VS

GeForce GTX 1050 3GB vs GeForce GTX 1630

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1050 3GB comes with core speeds of 1392 MHz on the GPU, and 1750 MHz on the 3072 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 768 SPUs along with 48 TAUs and 24 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all of that to the GeForce GTX 1630, which features a clock speed of 1740 MHz and a GDDR6 memory speed of 1500 MHz. It also uses a 64-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 12 nm design. It is made up of 512 SPUs, 32 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

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

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1050 3GB is just a bit (approximately 20%) faster with regards to texture 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

The GeForce GTX 1050 3GB is a small bit (approximately 20%) faster with regards to anti-aliasing than the GeForce GTX 1630, and also should be able to handle higher screen resolutions better. (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: Memory bandwidth is the largest amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be moved across the external memory interface in one second. It is calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory clock speed. If it uses DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 once 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, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

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

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics chip can possibly record to its local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The figure is calculated by multiplying the number of ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for filling the screen with pixels (the image). The actual pixel fill rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
