You know I wish that you can overclock the titan of the core speed and memory clock to like 1800 or 2000 lol then it'll be the most strong card for 1k $ worth buying

They lost me at
"Memory Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (measured in MB per second) that can be transported across the external memory interface within a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. In the case of DDR type RAM, it must be multiplied by 2 again. If it uses DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, the faster the card will be in general. It especially helps with anti-aliasing, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions."

Which has repeatedly proven not to be true.

*** do u mean Zarich? How many Ram should be able to max out all games and have butter fps?

It's virtually impossible to just look at 'specs' and determine relative graphics card performance, primarily because different games stress different sub-systems of the card. Add in the variability of different possible resolutions, different in-game graphics settings that can alter the point of bottleneck even with the SAME game, and the total picture that emerges is that looking at 'specs' is an entirely crappy way of trying to determine which GPU to buy.

ESPECIALLY if you're not a SERIOUS expert on what ALL the specs mean, and how they interact to affect performance. There is definitely no one metric that is important above all else when comparing cards. Memory bandwidth is important, but it's not 'everything' ... far from it.

There's a reason that there's dozens of websites that do reviews for us when new cards come out, showing consumers their performance relative to other, similar cards, across a variety of games and resolutions.

Really, nobody should try to buy a card based on specs alone. You should go to the online reviews, and look at the FPS graphs (and also read any explanations re: 'why' the graphs look like they look), paying special attention to any games you actually play, and look at the graphs for the resolution that matches or is closest to the resolution you are playing at, and decide THAT way.
