What is the difference between AMD and NVIDIA cards?

The main difference between AMD and NVIDIA-based cards lies in the stream processor technology. NVIDIA uses Compute Unified Device Architecture (CUDA) core, which is a programming model that directs the performance of the Graphics Processing Unit (GPU). NVIDIA uses a relatively smaller amount of high-quality CUDA cores that can handle complex loads. AMD uses a larger quantity of stream processors that are less efficient as a single unit, but combine together for increased efficiency.

There are many options for new or used 6GB graphics cards by either manufacturer. When buying a GPU on eBay, it is important to compare the benchmarks of each individual card to see if they can satisfy your gaming or computing needs.

What 6GB graphics cards are available on eBay?

What is a non-reference 6GB graphics card?

The two main card manufacturers, AMD and NVIDIA, produce their own in-house GPUs, referred to as reference cards. These companies also sell cards to other companies that make changes to enhance affordable 6GB graphics cards. Cards modified by other companies are called non-reference units.

Reference cards usually have one fan that removes air to the rear and keeps the PC case cool. Non-reference cards use two fans that are more efficient at cooling the card, but blow hot air back into the PC. When looking at a 6GB graphics card price on eBay, consider which will be the best option for the cooling system in your PC.
