Comparison of graphics cards – NVIDIA & AMD

High-quality graphics cards are highly sought after, with many customers unsure which will be the best for their money. That’s why we’ve put together this comparison of graphics cards to help point you in the right direction.

Upgrading your graphics card to enjoy the latest and greatest video games is the best way to take your gaming experience to the next level. No gamer wants to be left behind by new mind-blowing graphics because they’ve got a sub-par GPU meaning they’re unable to compete.

Some of the features that today’s market leading graphics cards boast are truly jaw dropping. From realistic light manipulation, brought to life by ray tracing technology, to AI algorithms which can be adjusted to change the level of graphic output.

Two of the biggest names at the top of the graphics card market are NVIDIA and AMD, each offering their own graphics cards with game-changing features that will have even the most experienced gamers drooling.

Here’s some of their best features.

NVIDIA features Highlights

NVIDIA pride themselves on their impressive ray tracing technology, championed by the RTX GeForce series. The technology is capable of imitating the real-life behaviour of light and reciprocating it in-game, creating an experience that almost seamlessly blurs the lines between real and virtual.

Another stunning feature that the RTX GeForce series offer is the inclusion of Tensor Cores, which is an artificial intelligence that drives what NVIDIA call ‘the greatest technology advancement in history’. The Turing architecture is what brings these stunning features to life, using AI-powered processing horsepower that accelerates gaming performance.

Spear-heading their latest bundle of improvements is their ‘Frames Win Games’ upgrade. This feature represents 144FPS gaming that is designed to give you the edge when locking horns with your competitors. The super high frame rate lets you see things earlier and gives you a better chance of hitting your target, which in-turn helps you maintain a more consistent performance.

AMD features highlights

If NVIDIA’s features blew your socks off, wait until you hear what AMD have to offer with their cutting-edge graphics cards designed for modern gaming. Their Radeon series support the high-tech FreeSync technology, which can fix broken frames with fluid performance improvements and is capable of operating at virtually any framerate.

AMD brand their Radeon RX series as the ultimate graphics card for gaming, with a highly immersive, highly customizable experience. The RX series features the new gaming RDNA Architecture, which features new compute units, new instructions better suited for visual effects and a multi-level cache for reduced latency and highly responsive gaming.

AMD’s GPU’s feature another treat for gamers in the form of high-fidelity gaming. The RDNA architecture has been specifically engineered to enhance features like Radeon Image Sharpening, FidelityFX, and Integer Display Scaling for ultimate performance and a mouth-watering gaming experience.
