  • Graphics cards weren't very useful for early computers, since they didn't have the capability to run graphic-based games or high resolution videos as modern computers do now.

    A video card (also called a video graphics adapter or VGA, display card, graphics card, graphics board, display adapter, graphics adapter GPU or frame buffer) is an which generates a feed of output images to a display (such as a ). Frequently, these are advertised as discrete or dedicated graphics cards, emphasizing the distinction between these and . Within the industry, video cards are sometimes called graphics add-in-boards, abbreviated as AIBs, with the word "graphics" usually omitted.

  • NVIDIA is used by many leading manufacturers to enable their graphics cards and boards to be as fast as possible. Trusted brands such as and have a wide range of cards using Nvidia technology as do and among others.

    Both of the dominant CPU makers, AMD and , are moving to APUs. One of the reasons is that graphics processors are powerful parallel processors, and placing them on the CPU die allows their parallel processing ability to be harnessed for various computing tasks in addition to graphics processing. (See , which discusses AMD's implementation.) APUs are the newer integrated graphics technology and, as costs decline, will probably be used instead of integrated graphics on the motherboard in most future low and mid-priced home and business computers. As of late 2013, the best APUs provide graphics processing approaching mid-range mobile video cards and are adequate for casual gaming. Users seeking the highest video performance for gaming or other graphics-intensive uses should still choose computers with dedicated graphics cards. (See , below.)

    GeForce is the cutting-edge technology that enables NVIDIA graphics cards to be superfast. The architecture used makes them suitable for all applications, though the different specifications on the cards suit different uses. However, GeForce isnt the only technology NVIDIA uses to fuel their graphics cards. Quadros processors, for example, have been designed to meet the stringent demands of professional workstations. Designers, engineers and creative users will benefit from the presence of a Quadro card in their PC.

The 10 best graphics cards in the world | TechRadar

firstly, if you read my post above you would notice that I owned a 4 way 7970 crossfire setup previously to purchasing a Titan card. And if you had a clue about how terrible crossfire was and is with 7000 series graphics cards you would realize I’m not delusional at all and have zero interest in running two 290X cards. here’s why, 1) your favorite title gets released and hey now I have to wait one or two months while they optimize drivers for crossfire.2) AMD runs there chips hot as hell so the 7000 series was not silent by any means(especially when running multiple cards). 3) microstutter, yup its there and if you think its not you don’t know what your looking for. If you want the best gaming experience you want to run the most powerful single GPU you can get your hands on. and the 290X is only a great value at the end of the day. Not to mention if you do any research on the 780ti you will see how quickly AMDs flasgship card is going to sink. Now I’m going to try be very clear with you… I have no Issues with AMD, I wish they would get there act together and launch a card that beats out nvidias greatest chip in all categories but as it stands all the 290X did was excell at titles that are optimised for AMD and there are still a tonne of titles that there missing the mark on. And I’m getting really sick of people showing 4K benchmarks as if they are a gaming standard. By the time 4K becomes relevant to all gamers the 290X is going to be a dinosaur.
