[SOLVED] When it comes to Graphics Cards clock speed, why is it so much lower to a Cpu's clock speed?

Why is it that Graphics Cards have so many more compute units than Cpus, but have lower clock speeds? I am trying to balance a system and am wondering how GPU clock speeds and cores relate to CPU clock speeds and cores.

They are two very different approaches to computations, GPU=Graphic Processing Units are very highly specialized things, whereas a CPU=Central Processing Unit is a do-it-all handyman.

Judging performance from frequencies alone is not a helpful basic understanding of PC components. I suggest watching a few Youtube videos about the basic components or reading a few articles about the basics.
I mean no offense by this, but you seem to want to learn and that is my best advice to you.

No offense taken. I do really want to learn and research and feedback is the only way that will happen. If anything, your feedback is extremely helpful.
