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 speed of 1750 MHz on this specific card. It features 768 SPUs along with 48 TAUs and 32 ROPs.

Compare all of that to the GeForce GTX 1630, which features a GPU core clock speed of 1740 MHz, and 4096 MB of GDDR6 RAM running at 1500 MHz through a 64-bit bus. It also is comprised of 512 Stream Processors, 32 Texture Address Units, and 16 Raster Operation Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Both cards have the same power consumption.

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti should be 17% faster than the GeForce GTX 1630 overall, because of its greater 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 will be a bit (approximately 11%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering 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 running with a high screen resolution is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti is superior to the GeForce GTX 1630, by a large margin. (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 maximum amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in a second. The number is worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory speed. If it uses DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 once again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the bandwidth is, the better 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 is worked out by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the video card will be at handling texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels applied in one second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that 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 clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for drawing the pixels (image) on the screen. The actual pixel fill rate also depends on quite a few other factors, especially the memory bandwidth of the card - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the ability to reach the max fill rate.
