Uhm...which makes it slower in games...who said anything about clocks?

Anyway, 780TI is still quite valid 1080p card, no point in upgrading it unless you go for higher res. I've put 1060 3GB last year in my other rig to replace ancient HD7770...now that was worthy upgrade.

You did

"it's slower than regular 1060,"

When talking about clock speed you would refer to that as speed, or you meant slower as in the card has less performance? You can get a 4ghz pentium 4 processor which would be faster than my Ryzen7 since it's clocked at just 3.7ghz as in the pentium 4 performs more operations per second than the Ryzen, the obvious difference is that most of those operations generate nothing but heat lol.

Think perhaps just confusion as you think the terms Clock speed and Speed are unrelated terms? But yeah both versions of the 1060 run at the same speed, there is just 10% less cores in the 3gb version which ends up obviously creating 10% less performance (in a perfectly optimized scenario for the 6gb version)

No, I really didn't - that has nothing to do with clock speed.

Being slower or faster is usual term used when comparing CPUs/GPUs...unless one is grammar nazi or has no grasp on how hardware works, since one card being slower or faster than the other is never compared via clock speeds (unless they are exactly the same cards clocked differently).

You are using the term Speed in place of performance, it's wrong there is no "grammar nazi" about it.

The card isn't faster, the speed that it's functioning at is the exact same on both 3gb and 6gb models, the 6gb provides more performance because it has more cores functioning at that speed.

If you would like to think I've no grasp on hardware functionality though and that the card does in fact work "faster" then by all means go for it if that makes you feel better, I'm done with the hardware lesson.



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

Well, I certainly hope you're done with your hardware lesson and that you've learned from it that not only GPUs are being faster/slower than others is usual lingo that's been around since there are GPUs, and has nothing to do with clocks (which is something that only someone who has very little knowledge about hardware would assume), but that how certain GPU preforms is measured in time that it needs to render a frame/frames it's capable to render in second - thus making it, by definition, faster or slower than other GPUs.

Looks great for a last gen game.
Though visually its still behinde alot of current gen games.

I think it holds up pretty damn good.
