1. GPU clock speed

The graphics processing unit (GPU) has a higher clock speed.
1620MHz
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming: 1784MHz
1050MHz

2. floating-point performance

Floating-point performance is a measurement of the raw processing power of the GPU.
4.15TFLOPS
Nvidia Titan V: 110TFLOPS
3.49TFLOPS

3. pixel rate

The number of pixels that can be rendered to the screen every second.
77.8GPixel/s
Nvidia Quadro GV100: 208.4GPixel/s
58.8GPixel/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.
8208MHz
Zotac Gaming GeForce RTX 2080 Ti AMP Extreme: 14400MHz
7012MHz

5. GPU memory speed

The memory clock speed is one aspect that determines the memory bandwidth.
2052MHz
Gainward GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition: 5505MHz
1753MHz

6. maximum memory bandwidth

This is the maximum rate that data can be read from or stored into memory.
197GB/s
Asus ROG Strix Radeon RX 570 Gaming OC: 2242GB/s
224.4GB/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.
1280
MSI Radeon RX 550 Aero ITX OC: 51232
1664

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.
120W
AMD Radeon HD 6450: 18W
148W

9. DirectX version

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

10. texture rate

The number of textured pixels that can be rendered to the screen every second.
129.6GTexels/s
Nvidia Quadro GV100: 521GTexels/s
109GTexels/s

11. RAM

2GB more RAM memory.
6GB
Nvidia Quadro GV100: 32.77GB
4GB

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.
192bit
Sapphire Radeon Pro Duo: 8192bit
256bit

13. semiconductor size

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

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.
80
XFX Radeon Pro Duo: 512
104

15. 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

16. number of transistors

A higher transistor count generally indicates a newer, more powerful processor.
4400 million
Asus GeForce ROG Strix RTX 2080 Gaming Advanced: 136000 million
5200 million

17. Supports 4K resolution
