Comparing Graphics Cards For Best Gaming PC Machines


Graphic Cards

The best desktop for gaming starts off with a good processor. In the market today, the leading processors include Intel's 8th generation Cor processors which possess a huge X-Series chip and AMD's now Ryzen 7-5-3 and Thredripper CPUs.

Once the processor and motherboard is set, it is important to choose a good graphic card. The two leaders in this market are Nvidia and AMD. Third party companies include MSI, Asus, Sapphire and more whore produce add in graphic cards. Nvidia is an excellent choice because they manufacture models that cannot be added on my third parties (known as their Founders Edition). AMD on the other hand creates a design for their partners to modify and use to their choosing.

AMD and Nvidia are head to head regarding their graphic cards. Nvidia was in the lead when they released their Titan XP, but once AMD released their Radeon RX Vega 64, the company again started taking the lead in the graphics card industry. AMD is at the top regarding performance per dollar, but their features come at a high-power necessity. AMD's Vega also lacks memory bandwidth and pixel fill rates. Despite these setbacks, the Vega 64 still provides improved performance for users who are using a liquid based cooling system rather than an air based one.

Nvidia's GTX 1080 and 1070 graphics card were the first cards to be introduced that are founded on Nvidia's Pascal design. The 1080 models are Nvidia's best designed graphics cards in the marker that are under the price of $1,199.00. The 1070 cards are rivaled by Radeon's RX Vega 65 graphics cards. The 1070 offers a wider memory bandwidth, but this wider memory requires greater power.

Nvidia's GTX 1060 graphics cards provide around 6GB of memory along with 1,280 cores. AMD's RX 500 series, which is based on an older design (GCN 4), offers extremely affordable graphics to the mainstream market and users while still offering high resolution games.
