How to Pick the Best Graphics Card for your Requirements? 7 Ways are here to identify
Mar 16, 2022

Graphics cards, also known as GPUs, serve two roles in workstation computers.

In games:

They accelerate 3D visuals, using their hardware power to determine the correct frame rate and resolution for all the visual effects to expect from new games.

For digital creatives:

Including animators, graphic artists, designers, illustrators and 3D modellers, graphics cards can significantly boost rendering times.

Quadros and Radeon Pros also have ECC memory for increased precision and sometimes they run at lower clock speeds, Which means they have lower power requirements and thermal demands. If your work totally depends on your creative output and you need to consider a Radeon Pro or Nvidia Quadro.

The specifications most often mentioned are memory (capacity, bandwidth and speed), the number of cores (basically the guts of the hardware), and the card’s clock speed (in MHz).

How to pick the Best graphics card for your requirements

  1. Resolution: The higher the resolution, you need the higher memory needs in graphics card. For Example, If you need 4K resolution, then you need a graphics card with more memory – 8GB or more
  2. Performance: The faster the performance of graphics card, the more detail and better effects you can expect from games at higher resolutions. For example, your system should be outputting 144 FPS to get the full benefit of a 144Hz monitor. The fluid performance frame rate is 60fps , but if your 144Hz display, then graphics card even harder to keep up.
  3. Cores: The number of cores determines the rendering power of a card based on the various price and performance tiers, from entry-level Rs5000 cards to 2Lakh+ price range.
  4. Clock Speed: The clock speed of the graphics card is quoted as a base figure. Similar to the Turbo mode on Intel CPUs, when a graphics card is under heavy load it will run at a higher clock speed for better performance until it hits its maximum to avoid overheating.
  5. Displays: Consider the display(s) you work with, and the output of a graphics card. All latest graphics cards use digital video outputs only, either HDMI or DisplayPort which may be through miniDP connector or a big D-shaped connector.
  6. For 4K or 5K displays, all graphics cards now support at least the DisplayPort 1.4 and HDMI 2.0 standards that offer the bandwidth needed for 60hZ refresh rates.
  7. In determining the performance of graphics cards is the hardware generation of the series, which is always codenamed for reference. Nvidia names its cards after scientists – Pascal, Turing, and so on, Whereas AMD is with its Polaris and Vega architecture currently on the market.
