Graphics card average performance.

Hi

I recently visited the GPU BOSS website to do some random comparaisons of different GCs.

But its a bit hard to choose basing it on this factors here, wich sometimes differ and make the older graphics card better than the new one. So what would be the best condition here to choose a GC ?

 

Memory Bandwidth

Rate at which data can be read from or stored in onboard memory

 

Pixel Rate

Number of pixels a graphics card can render to the screen every second

 

Texture Rate

Speed at which a graphics card can perform texture mapping

 

Floating Point Performance

How fast the gpu can crunch numbers

 

Shading Units

Subcomponents of the gpu, these run in parallel to enable fast pixel shading

 

Texture Mapping Units

Built into each gpu, these resize and rotate bitmaps for texturing scenes

if you never wonder about something, its because you know everything....:rolleyes: :rolleyes:

To simplify this a lot, get the card with the fastest GPU you can afford.

Specs to not accurately predict performance since nearly everyone's hardware combination is different

and everyone's skill at optimizing their hardware settings is different. It helps if your MB chipset

and GCard vendor is matched and if your MB is currently supported with up to date drivers.

 

Other than that, get the best you can afford and learn to work with and live with the results.

But, like they say 'Limitations May Apply', or 'Your Milage May Vary'. That usually means they are trying to 'sell you something' that might not work as expected (for the money) due to miss-match to MB and ram speed.

 

You Dual Core (Pentium) can be OC to 3.5 Ghz with no over heating. And the card that would work best with your system would be the MSI GeForce Gt-730 1gb DDR5 OC (overclock). It's $124.99 (free shippin, at Amazon). It can also be overclocked. It's PCI Express X16 (no power cable needed-runs off slot). Max Res: 4069 x 2160. VGA/DVi-D HDMI outputs. Manuf Date: 4-2014. Can be run off a 400 Watt PSU. So there you go.

 

Why spend big$ when you will wind up with 'less' performance due to GPU /Ram bottle neck? You could spend $250 / $400 / $999 on a GPU and be sorry you did it. Facts.

UPDATE: EVGA GeForce GTX-750 Ti SC 2gb GDDR5 $146 (Amazon), 60 watt (400 w PSU is (barely) sufficient, but 'ok'), manuf date: Apr 2014, Not SLI, 3 monitors 'ok' (1-HDMI, 1-DVI, 1-DP to HDMI). 1080p. MUST upgrade your Bios, but that is expected and not a 'con'. It's 6.7 inch in length. Should get steady 40 fps locked in FSX. Perfect for dual core. But be sure to get the chip set updated (or else).

I think I'd spend my money on upgrading my CPU and maybe my ram first. The CPU is primary in the FSX system. Not like most of the newer programs which rely on a great GPU.

Agreed. But not everybody can shell out $1200, or even $600, to 'upgrade' their system. But I imagine he might be able to swing the $150 or less for a 'suitable' GPU (to match the specs of what he has now). Just trying to give him an idea of what is possible, and maybe 'best', yet an apt improvement, without him having to spend a lot of dough (on the 'wrong' GPU). It's hard to match PC parts. Takes research.

I can find it a bit complicate because id like to macth the old parts like a new GC for my old MB

but later i should buy a newer MB for that same GC..and so on
