Understanding Graphic card & more question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
There a lot of things that I need to understand but maybe I could get all answer in ONE thread smile.gif

First question:

So basickly looking at graphic card and see specs how would I know which one is good, I know a 7970 is better then a 670 due to looking at benchmarks but seeing specs I dont understand it.

Here is the 680 specs :
GTX 680 GPU Engine Specs:
1536CUDA Cores
1006Base Clock (MHz)
1058Boost Clock (MHz)
128.8Texture Fill Rate (billion/sec)

GTX 680 Memory Specs:
6.0 GbpsMemory Speed
2048MBStandard Memory Config
256-bit GDDR5Memory Interface Width
192.


Apart from CUDA I dont understand everything else as much but I will try an explain what each of the things do and you can correct me if Im wrong :

1006Base Clock (MHz) - Speed of the graphic card in other words how fast the graphic is sent
1058Boost Clock (MHz)- same as above the boost settings
128.8Texture Fill Rate (billion/sec)- Dont understand but I will have a guess, How much texture can be shows in a per second ? Could this be the maximum res?

GTX 680 Memory Specs:
6.0 GbpsMemory Speed
2048MBStandard Memory Config 2 GB of VRAM? How much texture can be stored?
256-bit GDDR5Memory Interface Width- This is how much VRAM can be sent out ? forexample having 6gb of VRAM and having only 192-bit is usless as the speed to transfer the data will not be about to send 6gb... im just confusing my self, its like a funnel.
192.


am I right and can you tell what each of them are/do?
Second question:

How secure is a VPN? Is it fast? Will my I.P be hidden ?
