MSI GeForce GTX 770 Lightning: 54 facts and highlights

1. GPU clock speed

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

2. floating-point performance

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

3. pixel rate

The number of pixels that can be rendered to the screen every second.

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.

5. 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.

6. shading units

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

7. DirectX version

DirectX is used in games, with newer versions supporting better graphics.

8. texture rate

The number of textured pixels that can be rendered to the screen every second.

9. maximum memory bandwidth

This is the maximum rate that data can be read from or stored into memory.

10. GPU memory speed

The memory clock speed is one aspect that determines the memory bandwidth.

11. number of transistors

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

13. 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.

14. 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.

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.

16. OpenGL version

OpenGL is used in games, with newer versions supporting better graphics.

17. GPU turbo

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

20. load GPU temperature

A lower load temperature means that the card produces less heat and its cooling system performs better.

21. 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.

23. DisplayPort outputs

Allows you to connect to a display using DisplayPort.

24. DVI outputs

Allows you to connect to a display using DVI.
