GeForce RTX 3050 vs GeForce RTX 4070 Ti

Intro

The GeForce RTX 3050 comes with a clock speed of 1552 MHz and a GDDR6 memory speed of 1750 MHz. It also uses a 128-bit bus, and makes use of a 8 nm design. It is made up of 2560 SPUs, 80 TAUs, and 32 ROPs.

Compare those specifications to the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti, which features clock speeds of 2310 MHz on the GPU, and 1313 MHz on the 12288 MB of GDDR6X memory. It features 7680 SPUs as well as 240 Texture Address Units and 80 ROPs.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the max amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transferred past the external memory interface in a second. It's worked out by multiplying the bus width by its memory clock speed. In the case of DDR type memory, the result should be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by ANOTHER 2x. The better the card's memory bandwidth, 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 number of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This is worked out by multiplying the total amount of texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better 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 one second.

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