Have been building computers for many years and I have something to tell you.
 
 

Никогда не выискивал баланс между процессором и видеокартой. Всегда ставлю более мощный процессор и нет проблем. И всем советую так делать, если у вас есть деньги. Лучше один раз купить хорошую материнку и процессор, а потом только менять видеокарту на более мощную и добавлять оперативку. А так получается собрал ПК, через пару лет вышла игра, запускаешь, а у тебя баланс: нагрузка на процессор 100% на видеокарту 100%, вот и попадаешь автоматически на новые процессор, видеокарту, а может еще и материнскую плату в придачу.

Подбор процессора под видеокарту, или наоборот, — довольно легкое действие, но это только если ты хоть немного разбираешься в комплектующих, их характеристиках и производительности. В тот же момент собрать оптимальную связку не всегда получается по нескольким причинам.

Если вы вообще не разбираетесь в этом, напишите об этом в ответах ниже, я постараюсь помочь с выбором.

Когда мы собираем ПК с нуля из новых, современных процессоров и видеокарт, мы можем ориентироваться на их производительность и получить отличную связку, которая будет работать оптимально. Но если мы возьмем старый процессор и новую видеокарту, или наоборот, — вот здесь и возникают трудности.

Проблема заключается в том, что более старые комплектующие, которые в свое время были достаточно производительными, сейчас в современных играх, программах и приложениях таковыми не являются. Думаю, все знают легендарную модель видеокарты GTX 1080Ti? Так вот, несмотря на ее мощь, она сейчас находится по производительности в играх при Full HD разрешении на уровне RTX 3060 и RX 6600 XT, а в самых современных играх отстает от новинок.

Выбор правильной связки процессора и видеокарты — ключевой момент в сборке ПК, который определяет общую производительность и эффективность системы. Несоответствие компонентов может привести к так называемому “боттлнеку”, когда один компонент ограничивает производительность другого, не позволяя системе работать на полную мощность.

Основные факторы при выборе связки процессора и видеокарты

Важно выбирать процессор и видеокарту с сопоставимой производительностью, чтобы избежать узких мест. Если нет задачи собрать сбалансированный ПК и бюджет не ограничен, тогда можно выбрать более мощный процессор — так сказать, с запасом на будущее. А вот что точно делать не стоит, так это выбирать процессор по производительности «впритык». Когда процессор не справляется с игрой и нагружен на 100%, возникают серьёзные «тормоза». Поэтому либо мы выдерживаем баланс между процессором и видеокартой, либо выбираем более мощный процессор, но никак не наоборот.

Еще что важно понимать: ПК для игр, видеомонтажа или работы с 3D-моделированием требуются разные типы связок. Поэтому, перед покупкой важно изучить тесты производительности и отзывы пользователей. Это поможет понять, как связка будет работать в реальных условиях, какие игры или программы будут оптимально функционировать с выбранными компонентами. На YouTube полно тестов, вводите интересующие вас модели комплектующих в его поиск, смотрите, сравнивайте и выбирайте оптимальную связку компонентов.

A dedicated graphics card is a discrete video card that is a device that handles graphics processing, image output to the monitor, and other tasks.

A dedicated graphics card differs from an integrated graphics processor in that it has its own video memory, cooling system, and power supply circuits.

As a rule, a dedicated video card is more productive than an integrated GPU.

I hope you now understand what a dedicated video card is. If not, ask your questions in the comments.

Прежде чем говорить о том, зачем нужен райзер для видеокарты, предлагаю ознакомиться с тем, что это вообще такое.

Райзер - это специальный кабель-переходник, с помощью которого подключают видеокарту к материнской плате. Простым языком, это удлинитель, который позволяет подключать видеокарту к разъему PCI-E нестандартным способом.

Райзер нужен тогда, когда нужно подключить видеокарту вне корпуса системного блока. Также его используют, когда устанавливают видеокарту вертикально или когда необходимо подключить несколько видеокарт, которые не помещаются в корпус системного блока, например для майнинга.

Кроме этого, с помощью райзера можно подключать платы расширения и даже видеокарты имеющие интерфейс x16, в слот PCIe x1 на материнской плате. Правда работать это будет не очень производительно. Но если нужно, то почему бы и нет.

По итогу, райзер - это кабель/удлинитель/переходник, где один его конец имеет разъем для подключения в PCI-Express на материнской плате, а другой для видеокарты или любой другой платы расширения. Он может иметь разные разъемы, а точнее форм-фактор разъемов, от PCI-E x1 до PCI-E x16, есть и другие варианты.

GPU Hotspot is a term commonly used in the world of computer hardware, but not everyone knows what it means. GPU Hotspot refers to the hottest point on the graphics processing unit.

When the GPU is under heavy load, certain areas on its surface can heat up more than others. The Hotspot temperature can reach up to 100 degrees Celsius, which can significantly reduce the performance of the graphics card.

Installing high-quality cooling and adjusting the fan curve can help significantly reduce the GPU Hotspot temperature. It is also possible to use higher-quality thermal paste, which helps better transfer heat from the processor to the cooling elements.

As an option, if you are planning to install a powerful modern graphics card, it is worth paying attention to ensuring that the computer case is well-ventilated and has multiple fans for intake and exhaust of air. This can also help prevent excessive GPU Hotspot temperature. However, it is also important to consider the ambient temperature in the room where the computer is located. If the room temperature is 30+ degrees Celsius, not only the GPU Hotspot temperature will be high, but other components will also suffer.

There are several ways to check the temperature of a graphics card, both through software and using devices such as pyrometers or thermal cameras.

The first method, using software, is more straightforward and accurate as it reads the temperature directly from the sensors on the GPU chip, memory chips, and other important components of the graphics card.

Typically, you can download such software for measuring the temperature and other parameters of the graphics card from the manufacturer's official website. If not available, you can use third-party software such as MSI Afterburner, FPS Monitor, or Aida64.

Checking the temperature using devices like thermal cameras or pyrometers will not provide an exact measurement of the heat generated by the chips and hidden components of the graphics card. This method is more suitable for visually representing the heat distribution in different parts of the graphics card.
