8 x 1.6GHz

The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.

1.31 TFLOPS

1.84 TFLOPS

Floating-point performance is a measurement of the raw processing power of the GPU.
3.RAM

8GB

8GB

Random-access memory (RAM) is a form of volatile memory used to store working data and machine code currently in use. It is a quick-access, temporary virtual storage that can be read and changed in any order, thus enabling fast data processing.
4.memory bandwidth

68.3GB/s

176GB/s

A higher memory bandwidth means the memory can be accessed faster and therefore data can be retrieved quicker, having a positive effect on the performance.

The graphics processing unit (GPU) has a higher clock speed.
Shading units (or stream processors) are small processors within the graphics card that are responsible for processing different aspects of the image.
Compute units are a part of the GPU that contain the stream processors, an important component of graphics processing power.
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.
