confused about graphic cards?

forget all the confusing stats and numbers it just mumbo jumbo.the final thing you need to look at is memory bandwidth.

for a truly gaming rig you need to look at 60gb/s or higher

on a laptop probably 20gb/s(even tho a 9800pro outperformed this 6 or 7 years ago and costs about 50p these days)

so basically higher the memory bandwidth is all that counts

thats the whole point lol


yes but not when its mis-leading, bandwidth is irrelevant its potential only, like having a six lane motorway, pointless if only 3 cars going down it

it is best when discussing a topic to have at least a reasonable amount of knowledge.it seems the point you've stated is,regardless as to how an item can perform at 100 percent lets see how it does at 20 percent.

my initial point was that numbers are for mass marketing.

i.e. a card numbered 8000 can perform less than a card numbered 7000.

for example the new 9000 series

also many are confused about mobile gpu.as an old 6800 can outperform many of the new dx10 cards.

also you cant state in reply "well yes the more you pay the higher the bandwidth",as the old staple of x1950xt performs almost to todays dx10 cards yet can be bought for a tener on ebay.

so we try to find one point,as there are 500 different cards,thus 60gb/s to play crysis(for example) on high is a benchmark

interesting article the column labelled speed is the gb/s.so look for anything higher than 60 for a gaming rig.

your post was just misleading, I have 2 6800 for sale and my 1950xt is better then 8800 with a lot of stuff, so i am happy, but a lot of people are going to read your post and think there cards are cr*p when there not.
