GeForce GTX 1050 Ti vs GeForce GTX 1630

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti uses a 14 nm design. nVidia has clocked the core speed at 1290 MHz. The GDDR5 RAM is set to run at a frequency of 1750 MHz on this particular model. It features 768 SPUs as well as 48 Texture Address Units and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all of that to the GeForce GTX 1630, which comes with clock speeds of 1740 MHz on the GPU, and 1500 MHz on the 4096 MB of GDDR6 memory. It features 512 SPUs as well as 32 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Both cards have the same power consumption.

Memory Bandwidth

In theory, the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti should be 17% quicker than the GeForce GTX 1630 overall, because of its higher bandwidth. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 114688 MB/sec
GeForce GTX 1630 98304 MB/sec
Difference: 16384 (17%)

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti is a small bit (approximately 11%) faster with regards to AF than the GeForce GTX 1630. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 61920 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 1630 55680 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 6240 (11%)

Pixel Rate

If using a high screen resolution is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti is a better choice, and very much so. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 41280 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 1630 27840 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 13440 (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 max amount of information (counted in megabytes per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's bus width by its memory speed. If the card has DDR RAM, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The higher the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be processed per second. This 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 graphics card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in a second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the maximum amount of pixels that the graphics chip could possibly record to the local memory per second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is calculated by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the core clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - aka Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the maximum fill rate.
