EVGA GeForce GTX 1050 FTW DT ACX 3.0
A higher transistor count generally indicates a newer, more powerful processor.
Asus GeForce ROG Strix RTX 2080 Gaming Advanced
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.
AMD Radeon HD 6450
A smaller size indicates that the process to create the chip is newer.
AMD Radeon RX 570
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.

The number of pixels that can be rendered to the screen every second.
AMD Radeon VII
The number of textured pixels that can be rendered to the screen every second.
Nvidia Quadro GV100
Floating-point performance is a measurement of the raw processing power of the GPU.
Nvidia Titan V
The memory clock speed is one aspect that determines the memory bandwidth.
Gainward GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition
The graphics processing unit (GPU) has a higher clock speed.
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1080 Xtreme Gaming
Shading units (or stream processors) are small processors within the graphics card that are responsible for processing different aspects of the image.
MSI Radeon RX 550 Aero ITX OC
This is the maximum rate that data can be read from or stored into memory.
Asus ROG Strix Radeon RX 570 Gaming OC
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.
Sapphire Radeon Pro Duo
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.
