General info

1.thermal design power (TDP)

90W

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.

Best

AMD Radeon HD 6450

18W

2.number of transistors

2940 million

A higher transistor count generally indicates a newer, more powerful processor.

Best

Asus GeForce ROG Strix RTX 2080 Gaming Advanced

136000 million

3.semiconductor size

28nm

A smaller size indicates that the process to create the chip is newer.

Best

AMD Radeon RX 570

1nm

4.PCI Express (PCIe) version

3

PCI Express (PCIe) is a high speed expansion card standard, that connects the computer to it's peripherals. Newer versions can support more bandwidth and deliver better performance.

Performance

1.GPU clock speed

1026MHz

The graphics processing unit (GPU) has a higher clock speed.

Best

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming

1784MHz

2.shading units

768

Shading units (or stream processors) are small processors within the graphics card that are responsible for processing different aspects of the image.

Best

MSI Radeon RX 550 Aero ITX OC

51232

3.texture mapping units (TMUs)

48

TMUs take textures and map them to the geometry of a 3D scene. More TMUs will typically mean that texture information is processed faster.

Best

XFX Radeon Pro Duo

512

4.render output units (ROPs)

32

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.

Best

Nvidia Quadro GV100

5.GPU turbo

1190MHz

When the GPU is running below its limitations, it can boost to a higher clock speed in order to give increased performance.

Best

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming

1936MHz

Memory

1.effective memory speed

6600MHz

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.

Best

Zotac Gaming GeForce RTX 2080 Ti AMP Extreme

14400MHz

2.memory bus width

128bit

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.
