Desktop Graphics Card Comparison Hierarchy

If you’re just starting your research on a new graphics card, you probably have no idea where to start. This is why we’ve decided to put together a graphics card comparison chart ranking each of the latest graphics cards based on its performance capabilities.

The comparison chart below is based on research from multiple review sites as well as performance numbers gathered from own reviews and testing. Keep in mind that each of the graphics card vendors have their own preferred game development partners, so in some rare instances in specific games, a graphics card from one vendor may outperform a higher ranked graphics cards from another vendor.

We [...]

Nvidia GTX 10-Series GPU Owners Can Now Watch Netflix at 4K

One of the biggest benefits to Intel’s latest Kaby Lake CPUs is that it supports built-in DRM as well as dedicated 4K video processing capabilities. As such, only those fortunate enough to own Intel’s latest and greatest were granted access to Netflix’s glorious 4K video library, until now.

Tucked in with Nvidia’s latest 384.76 GeForce Game Ready Drivers is support for Netflix 4K streaming for all of Nvidia’s latest 10-series Pascal architecture based GPUs. However, there are a couple caveats.

First, you’ll need to download the Windows 10 Netflix App. The app features stronger forms of copyright protection than the web browser [...]

Nvidia Reportedly Planning to Launch GeForce GT1030 to Compete Against AMD RX 550

The release of the $79 AMD RX 550 is giving AMD a huge advantage in the ultra low end segment in the graphics card space and according to a recent report at WCCFTech, Nvidia is reportedly planning to strike back.

The upcoming low-end solution from Nvidia will not feature the GTX moniker, and will just feature the GT prefix. The card may be dubbed as the GeForce GT 1030/1040 and will feature a minuscule 35W power profile.

The upcoming card is expected to feature the GP108 GPU which was previously expected to be for mobile applications. GP108 will contain just 521 SMPs, 32 TMUs, and 16 ROPs. Just as the Polaris 12 GPU in the Radeon RX 550, the GP108 won’t [...]

Nvidia Driver May Cause Inconsistent Benchmark Results in Rise of the Tomb Raider

Youtube channel AdoredTV recently uncovered a potential shortcoming in Nvidia’s drivers which can cause performance dips when a Nvidia graphics card is paired with a Ryzen CPU.

When paired with a Nvidia graphics card, AMD’s Ryzen 1800X falls short – sometimes by as much as 40% – when compared to an Intel Core i7-7700K running Rise of the Tomb Raider. GPU statistics collected during benchmark runs reveal that the Ryzen-based system wasn’t pushing the GPU to 100%, causing it to lag behind the Intel-based system. This was consistent in both DX 11 and DX 12 benchmarks. Normally, this would indicate a bottleneck on the CPU, which was strange [...]
