Palit GeForce GTX 1060 Dual: 35 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. maximum memory bandwidth

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

9. GPU memory speed

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

10. texture rate

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

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.

18. 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.

21. DisplayPort outputs

Allows you to connect to a display using DisplayPort.

22. DVI outputs

Allows you to connect to a display using DVI.

23. semiconductor size

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

24. Supports 3D

Allows you to view in 3D (if you have a 3D display and glasses).
