Graphics cards

A video card, video adapter, graphics accelerator card, display adapter, or graphics card is an expansion card which generates output images to a display. Most video cards offer added functions, such as accelerated rendering of 3D scenes and 2D graphics, video capture, TV-tuner adapter, MPEG-2/MPEG-4 decoding, FireWire, light pen, TV output, or the ability to connect multiple monitors (multi-monitor). Other modern high performance video cards are used for more graphically demanding purposes, such as PC games.
Video hardware is often integrated into the motherboard, however all modern motherboards provide expansion ports to which a video card can be attached. In this configuration it is sometimes referred to as a video controller or graphics controller.

Graphics processing unit

i

Graphics processing unit

A graphics processing unit or GPU (also occasionally called visual processing unit or VPU) is a specialized circuit designed to rapidly manipulate and alter memory in such a way so as to accelerate the building of images in a frame buffer intended for output to a display. GPUs are used in embedded systems, mobile phones, personal computers, workstations, and game consoles. Modern GPUs are very efficient at manipulating computer graphics, and their highly parallel structure makes them more effective than general-purpose CPUs for algorithms where processing of large blocks of data is done in parallel. In a personal computer, a GPU can be present on a video card, or it can be on the motherboard, or in certain CPUs, on the CPU die.

Lithography
i

Lithography

Photolithography (or "optical lithography") is a process used in microfabrication to selectively remove parts of a thin film or the bulk of a substrate. It uses light to transfer a geometric pattern from a photo mask to a light-sensitive chemical "photoresist", or simply "resist," on the substrate.

Processor clock frequency
i

Processor clock frequency

In electronics and especially synchronous digital circuits, a clock signal is a particular type of signal that oscillates between a high and a low state and is utilized like a metronome to coordinate actions of circuits. Although the word signal has a number of other meanings, the term is here used for "transmitted energy that can carry information".

A clock signal is produced by a clock generator. Although more complex arrangements are used, the most common clock signal is in the form of a square wave with a 50% duty cycle, usually with a fixed, constant frequency. Circuits using the clock signal for synchronization may become active at either the rising edge, falling edge, or, in the case of double data rate, both in the rising and in the falling edges of the clock cycle.

A shader in the field of computer graphics is a set of software instructions, which is used by the graphic resources primarily to perform rendering effects. Shaders are used to allow a 3D application designer to program the GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) "programmable pipeline", which has mostly superseded the older "fixed-function pipeline", allowing more flexibility in making use of advanced GPU programmability features.

GeForce GTX 1080 ARMOR 8G OC (8GB, High End)

Quiet. Fast. Unreasonably expensive.

I am using this with a i7-3770K inside a Fractal Node 304 Mini-ITX case. The host is running ArchLinux and I am using VGA passthrough to assign the GPU to a Windows VM (for gaming) or a Linux VM (for machine learning). Output is connected to a BenQ W1070 projector.

First impressions:
- Witcher 3 is butter-smooth at 2560x1440 @ultra settings (using DSR from the Nvidia control panel to render at that resolution.)
- Theano runs around 20-30% faster than on a Titan X on various workloads.
- Fans do not spin until 60C. Totally silent on idle. When playing Witcher 3 the fans spin up but still sound smooth (wind noise) with a just a hint of motor drone. They are significantly quieter than the projector, and much much quieter than the Founder's Edition blower-style fan.
- Power usage is 8-9W on idle. This is higher than the Founder's Edition (4-6W) but quite acceptable. The max power limit is 240W, which is higher than the Founder's Edition (180W).
- This card does not have a backplate. It feels slightly less rigid and is a bit harder to handle than the Founder's Edition cards.
- This card takes a 8 and a 6pin power connector. The Founder's edition takes just a single 8pin connector.

Verdict: excellent performance, good acoustics, super expensive. For most use cases, this is a better choice than the Founder's Edition cards.

Quieter and cooler than the Founder's Edition cards. Silent on idle
Excellent gaming performance at 1440p-1800p @ultra settings
Excellent performance for machine learning
Low idle power draw
No backplate helps in tight Mini-ITX setups
This is currently 120-150chf more expensive than the MSRP
No backplate makes it harder to hold, install and clean
This thing is surprisingly heavy
Nvidia driver shenanigans to block virtualisation. Does not support Linux GBM or Wayland.

GeForce GTX 1080 ARMOR 8G OC (8GB, High End)

Significantly better than the reference cards

I upgraded from a reference GTX 980 Ti due to my old card dying.
Performance is noticeably better, but not really worth the price. The 980 Ti is still a very decent card by comparison, even in 4k.

The biggest improvement over my reference 980 Ti is the noise and cooling. The 980 Ti would very quickly get very hot under load. It didn't perform quite as well as it should have (according to benchmarks), likely because it quickly hit its target temperature (83°C) and started throttling. Trying to get the fans turn faster improved performance, but also made the card very loud. At 110% power target and with sufficiently fast fans, the card would come close to a 1080 at the cost of extreme noise.

Enter the MSI 1080 Armor.
On idle, the fans don't spin (as opposed to the 22% minimum fan speed of the reference 980 Ti). The card still manages to run cooler than the reference 980 Ti.
Under load, the card would never reach 80°C and still remains very quiet. At 70% fan speed, the card is still very quiet. At 100% fan speed, it gets a bit loud. If you wear a headset, you probably won't hear the card, even at 100% fan speed.

Even though it was quite expensive, I don't regret buying this card. The better performance wasn't quite worth the price, but the significantly better cooling makes up for it.

If you're looking for a silent card that performs well, buy this. If you have a 980 Ti and are very satisfied with it, wait for the next generation.

Quiet, even under load
Great cooling performance
Best performance money can buy (aside from the Titan X 2016)
Price a bit high; not quite worth it for owners of a 980 Ti

MSI has done a good job for a very decent price (got mine for 750.- here)


Really quiet, even at full speed
Top notch perfomances
