More about whats gaming processor cores shader clock
  1. shader clock is in graphic card, processor core is in cpu. They are different. All games require cpu cores and shador clock and gpu clock from your cpu and graphic card.

    CPU= you need high frequency + cores
    GPU= you need high GPU frequency, high shadclock or memory clock.

    Totally , you need fast processor(core) and fast graphic card that has high frequency+memory clock in other to max out game.
  2. the reason im askin is im building a system and im looking at some gfx cards and im comparing these two.. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121419 and this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130629

    with this mother board http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131631

    all i really do is play games and watch movies i just dont know the difference for what i need.. for what i do
  3. the ati has high processor cores but low shader clock and the nvidia has low processor cores but high shader clock
  4. im going to buy a new monitor.. havent decided which one yet
  5. The 6850 is a little faster then the 550ti. And Dadiggle is right.
  6. The 6850 is a better videocard and would be the better choice. It's faster and handles EYEfinity , which is essentially the capacity to power the display of up to 3 monitors at once.

    That mobo is great. In fact it may even support future am3+ with a BIOS flash so you may be able to just drop in a bulldozer come summer :D
  7. thanks for the help guys
  8. and rather than just looking at the specs, take a look at reviews to see the gaming performance of the cards. In this review the 6850 is 18% faster on average at 1680*1050

  9. thats what i wanted to see.. thanks
  10. Quote:
    Show some 1080p results where tessilation is involved. That's a reference card btw

    tessellation is like used only in unigine heaven, but when it gets used more in games TPU will use those games in their revies and it gets incorporated in those performance summary graphs. so quit bitching
    and I wouldnt use 550 or 6850 at 1080 anyways :kaola:

    and direct CU top isnt reference, but those oc models dont 'stick' to their charts after the initial review

    edit lol w/e, here u go
