All about the Gigabyte Graphics Card

What is Gigabyte Nvidia?

Nvidia is the company that makes the GPU – the silicone chip that does all the computing. Gigabyte, EVGA, MSI, ASUS, and other companies buy the GPU and put it onto their own board designs which have different memory, different power management, different cooling systems, RGB lighting and other things that make them slightly different from each other.

They are all competing on cost, performance, power usage, maximum overclock, noise levels, size, design, and other features that people care about.

Are Gigabyte graphics cards any good?

A lot of people ask this question when they are looking to buy a new graphics card. It isn’t cheap and it’s something that will last for years to come. There are so many brands and options available, this is why it is so important to make sure you trust the brand you buy from.

To answer the question, yes. Gigabyte is one of the most trusted GPU brands alongside ASUS, MSI and EVGA. Gigabyte has a good balance between price and performance. Gigabyte GPUs are made by the Taiwanese computer hardware company, Gigabyte. They have been around since 1986.

Gigabyte design their graphics cards to be long-lasting and high-performing, allowing you to play games at their highest settings. Gigabyte GPUs have a custom cooling system that allows for continuous operation without overheating.

Are Nvidia GPUs only for gaming?

No. Nvidia has a huge variety when it comes to graphics cards. For the gamers you will be looking at Gigabyte’s more expensive range. The Nvidia GeForce RTX 30 Series GPUs and Nvidia GeForce RTX 20 Series are made for gaming and video editing, etc.

The cheaper and slower range are for people who mainly use their computer for basic tasks like watching videos or editing documents.

Why does Gigabyte use alternate spinning fans on some of their graphics cards?

Gigabyte’s WINDFORCE 3X cooling system with alternate spinning can do some serious cooling. These systems feature 3x unique blade fans, composite copper heat pipes, protection metal back plate, 3D active fan and screen cooling

Gigabyte turns the adjacent fans in the opposite direction so that the airflow direction between the two fans are the same. Alternate spinning can reduce the turbulence of adjacent fans and increase the air pressure, which is very sufficient for cooling.

Does Gigabyte graphics cards come with RGB fusion 2.0?

Some models have RGB lighting, which can be controlled using the AORUS engine. The software is called RGB Fusion 2.0, it is provided by Gigabyte to allow you to have more control over your card and it’s lighting features. For example, if you want different games to use different colour lighting then you can set that in the software!

It syncs all your compatible devices’ lighting in one place. AORUS RGB Fusion 2.0 is the latest version available.

Cores on GeForce RTX cards explained:

Tensor Cores

It is an unprecedented acceleration for HPC and AI. These cores are specialized cores that enable mixed precision training. Tensor Cores provide higher performance with reduced precisions like 8-bit floating point in the Transformer Engine.

3rd Generation Tensor Cores

The 3rd generation Tensor Cores provides a huge performance boost and delivers new precisions to cover the full spectrum from research all the way to production. You can dramatically accelerate your throughput and reduce AI training times with Tensor Cores enabled.

2nd Generation RT Cores

Graphics APIs can be used to take advantage of RT Cores to accelerate ray tracing workloads. RT Cores are specialized processors that check for intersections between virtual light rays and objects in the scene. RT Cores also make it possible to check for thousands and thousands of these intersections every second. 2nd Generation RT Cores are better in two ways – speed and efficiency.
