When the word resolution comes to your mind you will think of the number of pixels within the screen. With improved technology, the word has transformed to mean “the number of pixel per unit area”. The computer CPU will initiate the image creation process. The CPU requests for an image. The GPU responds by sending pixels which constitutes the image back to the CPU. The CPU then sends the pixel to the screen via the graphics cables. When the image pixels reach the screen they are arranged to form the image. When you need to game or edit HD videos the process goes continuously fast to a rate of sixty times per second.
Graphics Cards are developed based on how fast they can send back the image pixel and the number of pixels the GPU can store. How fast the GPU will operate will be determined by the GPU Ram size and the Ram technology. The technology used in the cooling slot is another factor which contributes to variation in graphics cards. Now, what GPU do you need for gaming and graphic design?
Low-end games are games that demand very low graphical requirements. Because they do not demand high system specification they are sold at a friendly price. The best graphics cards at this level are; XFX Radeon RX 550 and GeForce GT 1030. These two Graphics cards have specifications that are almost similar. The two have 2 GB memory, which comes with a GDDR5 Ram technology. Both also have a memory clock of 6000 MHz and an HDMI connectivity.
High-end games demand high graphical requirements in order to play them. These graphics cards due to their demanding nature they are hard to acquire due to their high costs. These graphics cards include EVGA GeForce RTX 2070 and GeForce RTX 2080. These graphics cards have the ability to take on 4K screens. RTX 2070 have system features that are upgraded compared to its later version GT 1030.
GeForce RTX 2070 with a GDDR6, 8GB Ram technology, and size. It has a base speed of 1725 MHz and a memory speed of 14000 MHz.Total power draw is 175W. Its dual HDB fans cool the system hence enhancing higher. The main method of connectivity is through HDMI.
In order to decide the amount of graphics you need you check the system requirements for your editing software. Adobe premiere pro CC and Apple cut pro X are currently the top video editing option. This is particularly due to their support for CinemaDNG.
The best video editing laptops and computers usually come equipped with the NVIDIA RTX 2080 or similar. The following are the major features of the beast GPU RTX 2080:
Recommended software: Adobe after effects, Premiere Pro, Sony Vegas, and DaVinci Resolve
Memory: Come with an 8GB GDDR6 Ram technology
Resolution: Offers 4K display support
Power consumption: 225W
Cooling system: The system comes fitted with a CPU liquid cooling system to effectively cool it
The GeForce RTX 2080 due to its beast nature it support almost all video editing software which requires high-quality rendering.
