GeForce GTX 1050 vs GeForce GTX 1630

Intro

The GeForce GTX 1050 features a clock speed of 1354 MHz and a GDDR5 memory speed of 1750 MHz. It also makes use of a 128-bit memory bus, and makes use of a 14 nm design. It is comprised of 640 SPUs, 40 TAUs, and 32 ROPs.

Compare those specs 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 along with 32 TAUs and 16 ROPs.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Both cards have the same power consumption.

Memory Bandwidth

As far as performance goes, the GeForce GTX 1050 should in theory be a small bit better than the GeForce GTX 1630 overall. (explain)

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

Texel Rate

The GeForce GTX 1630 should be a little bit (about 3%) faster with regards to anisotropic filtering than the GeForce GTX 1050. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1630 55680 Mtexels/sec
GeForce GTX 1050 54160 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 1520 (3%)

Pixel Rate

If using lots of anti-aliasing is important to you, then the GeForce GTX 1050 is the winner, by a large margin. (explain)

GeForce GTX 1050 43328 Mpixels/sec
GeForce GTX 1630 27840 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 15488 (56%)

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 data (in units of MB per second) that can be transported past the external memory interface in one second. It's calculated by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the bandwidth is, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and high resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum texture map elements (texels) that can be applied per second. This figure is calculated by multiplying the total number of texture units by the core clock speed of the chip. The higher the texel rate, the better the graphics 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 maximum number of pixels the graphics card could possibly record to the local memory in one second - measured in millions of pixels per second. The number is worked out by multiplying the number of Raster Operations Pipelines by the clock speed of the card. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - also sometimes called Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel fill rate is also dependant on many other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.
