Performance

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

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The number of pixels that can be rendered to the screen every second.
Floating-point performance is a measurement of the raw processing power of the GPU.
The memory clock speed is one aspect that determines the memory bandwidth.
5.texture rate

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The number of textured pixels that can be rendered to the screen every second.
Shading units (or stream processors) are small processors within the graphics card that are responsible for processing different aspects of the image.
7.GPU turbo

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

When the GPU is running below its limitations, it can boost to a higher clock speed in order to give increased performance.
8.texture mapping units (TMUs)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

TMUs take textures and map them to the geometry of a 3D scene. More TMUs will typically mean that texture information is processed faster.
9.render output units (ROPs)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

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.

Memory

1.effective memory speed

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

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

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

VRAM (video RAM) is the dedicated memory of a graphics card. More VRAM generally allows you to run games at higher settings, especially for things like texture resolution.
4.memory bus width

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

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.
5.version of GDDR memory

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

Newer versions of GDDR memory offer improvements such as higher transfer rates that give increased performance.
6.Supports ECC memory
Qualcomm Adreno 506
Error-correcting code memory can detect and correct data corruption. It is used when is it essential to avoid corruption, such as scientific computing or when running a server.

Features

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

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

OpenGL is used in games, with newer versions supporting better graphics.
Some apps use OpenCL to apply the power of the graphics processing unit (GPU) for non-graphical computing. Newer versions introduce more functionality and better performance.
The graphics card supports multi-display technology. This allows you to configure multiple monitors in order to create a more immersive gaming experience, such as having a wider field of view.
5.load GPU temperature

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

A lower load temperature means that the card produces less heat and its cooling system performs better.
6.supports ray tracing
Qualcomm Adreno 506
Ray tracing is an advanced light rendering technique that provides more realistic lighting, shadows, and reflections in games.
7.PassMark (G3D) result

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

This benchmark measures the graphics performance of a video card. Source: PassMark.
8.3DMark Vantage Texture Fill result

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

This benchmark is designed to measure graphics performance. Source: AnandTech.
OpenGL ES is used for games on mobile devices such as smartphones. Newer versions support better graphics.

Ports

1.has an HDMI output
Qualcomm Adreno 506
Devices with a HDMI or mini HDMI port can transfer high definition video and audio to a display.
2.HDMI version

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

Newer versions of HDMI support higher bandwidth, which allows for higher resolutions and frame rates.
3.DisplayPort outputs

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

Allows you to connect to a display using DisplayPort.
4.HDMI ports

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

More HDMI ports mean that you can simultaneously connect numerous devices, such as video game consoles and set-top boxes.
5.DVI outputs

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

Allows you to connect to a display using DVI.
6.mini DisplayPort outputs

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

Allows you to connect to a display using mini-DisplayPort.

General info

1.Thermal Design Power (TDP)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

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.
2.number of transistors

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

A higher transistor count generally indicates a newer, more powerful processor.
Small semiconductors provide better performance and reduced power consumption. Chipsets with a higher number of transistors, semiconductor components of electronic devices, offer more computational power. A small form factor allows more transistors to fit on a chip, therefore increasing its performance.
4.PCI Express (PCIe) version

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

Peripheral Component Interconnect Express (PCIe) is a high-speed interface standard for connecting components, such as graphics cards and SSDs, to a motherboard. Newer versions can support more bandwidth and deliver better performance.
5.warranty period

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

When covered under the manufacturer’s warranty it is possible to get a replacement in the case of a malfunction.
6.Is dual-GPU
Qualcomm Adreno 506
The graphics card contains two graphics processing units (GPUs). This generally results in better performance than a similar, single-GPU graphics card.
7.Has air-water cooling
Qualcomm Adreno 506
The graphics card uses a combination of water and air to reduce the temperature of the card. This allows it to be overclocked more, increasing performance.
8.width

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
9.height

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.

Miscellaneous

It can support faster memory, which will give quicker system performance.
