Hello guys, need to ask a couple of questions. What do core clock means in graphics card context? What differentiates it from the memory clock in the graphics card?

I know what is AA, but what does it meant to say 6xAA and say 8xAA?

Thanks in advance.

I don't know exactly what the core clock thing is, so you probably should go look it up on google.

But the 6 and 8xAA, you can read about it here. (http://www.widearea.co.uk/designer/anti.html)

The core clock speed would be the speed of the VPU, video processing unit. It's the number of processes per x amount of time. It's just like the speed of the CPU in your computer. Memory on your graphics card also has a bus speed that basically tells you how fast information is transfered in and out of RAM. Just like the memory in your computer. Think of your graphics card as a very small computer, with out a hard drive, that's sole purpose is to process video.
