How to read a GPU name and number (pls help) Tags: Graphics Cards GPUs How To Graphics Last response: March 6, 2012 7:59 PM in Graphics & Displays Share daasu March 6, 2012 7:25:32 PM I am new to building and upgrading and I have a few questions. 1. ATI/Radeon/GeForce - Brand names? 2. How do I know what number is better than the other? I'm use to thinking the higher the number the better, but after reading so many posts. I don't know which is better. 3. Is there meaning in the numbers? For example 6xxx for this type of use, and 7xxx would be for something else? 4. Is there something like a quick reference chart that could help me? Thank you for your assistance.
