Floating-point performance is a measurement of the raw processing power of the GPU.
3.89TFLOPS
Nvidia Titan V: 110TFLOPS
11.88TFLOPS

3. pixel rate

The number of pixels that can be rendered to the screen every second.
30.4GPixel/s
Nvidia Quadro GV100: 208.4GPixel/s
145.8GPixel/s

4. effective memory speed

The effective memory clock speed is calculated from the size and data rate of the memory. Higher clock speeds can give increased performance in games and other applications.
6400MHz
Zotac Gaming GeForce RTX 2080 Ti AMP Extreme: 14400MHz
11008MHz

5. GPU memory speed

The memory clock speed is one aspect that determines the memory bandwidth.
1600MHz
Gainward GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition: 5505MHz
1376MHz

6. maximum memory bandwidth

This is the maximum rate that data can be read from or stored into memory.
307GB/s
Asus ROG Strix Radeon RX 570 Gaming OC: 2242GB/s
484.4GB/s

7. shading units

Shading units (or stream processors) are small processors within the graphics card that are responsible for processing different aspects of the image.
2048
MSI Radeon RX 550 Aero ITX OC: 51232
3584

8. thermal design power (TDP)

The thermal design power (TDP) is the maximum amount of power the cooling system needs to dissipate. A lower TDP typically means that it consumes less power.
190W
AMD Radeon HD 6450: 18W
250W

9. texture rate

The number of textured pixels that can be rendered to the screen every second.
122GTexels/s
Nvidia Quadro GV100: 521GTexels/s
371.2GTexels/s

10. DirectX version

DirectX is used in games, with newer versions supporting better graphics.
11.2
Colorful GeForce iGame RTX 2080 Ti Advanced OC: 12.1
12

11. RAM

8GB more RAM memory.
3GB
Nvidia Quadro GV100: 32.77GB
11GB

12. memory bus width

A wider bus width means that it can carry more data per cycle. It is an important factor of memory performance, and therefore the general performance of the graphics card.
384bit
Sapphire Radeon Pro Duo: 8192bit
352bit

13. OpenCL version

Some applications use OpenCL to utilise the power of the graphics processing unit (GPU) for non-graphical computing. Newer versions introduce more functionality and better performance.
1.2
XFX Radeon RX 550 Slim Single Slot 4GB: 4.5
1.2

14. texture mapping units (TMUs)

TMUs take textures and map them to the geometry of a 3D scene. More TMUs will typically mean that texture information is processed faster.
128
XFX Radeon Pro Duo: 512
224

15. semiconductor size

A smaller size indicates that the process to create the chip is newer.
28nm
AMD Radeon RX 570: 1nm
16nm

16. number of transistors

A higher transistor count generally indicates a newer, more powerful processor.
4313 million
Asus GeForce ROG Strix RTX 2080 Gaming Advanced: 136000 million
12000 million

17. Supports 4K resolution

Allows you to view in ultra-high definition.

18. OpenGL version

OpenGL is used in games, with newer versions supporting better graphics.
4.3
Asus Cerberus GTX 1070 Ti Advanced: 12
4.5

19. GPU turbo

When the GPU is running below its limitations, it can boost to a higher clock speed in order to give increased performance.
1100MHz
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming: 1936MHz
1657MHz

20. render output units (ROPs)

The ROPs are responsible for some of the final steps of the rendering process, writing the final pixel data to memory and carrying out other tasks such as anti-aliasing to improve the look of graphics.
