The important distinction between graphics cards for the AR Sandbox is the number of floating-point operations per second (flops), which is more or less proportional to the product of number of CUDA cores / stream processors and clock frequency, but memory bandwidth and core efficiency enter it as well. Flops ratings can be found on the Wikipedia entries for most GPUs, and on GPU benchmark sites. For comparison, our recommended Nvidia GeForce 970 GTX delivers around 3.5 teraflops.

Memory size is not important, as the AR Sandbox in default configuration uses much less than 1 GB of VRAM.
