Graphics card tier list: Best Graphics Cards — October 2022

GPU hierarchy 2022: Graphics card tier list ranked

Planning to get a new graphics card? Interested in the performance gains you could get from the upgrade? Below you can find our 2021 GPU tier list, consisting of five tiers in total. From graphics cards for esports gaming at 1080p resolution to flagship beasts that can run almost every game at 4K and at least 60fps with all settings cranked up. 

The list is based on average performance in modern AAA titles. We didn’t include esports gaming performance and if you’re an exclusive esports gamer, you can freely move every card up a tier since most competitive multiplayer games aren’t demanding. Add the fact that most competitive gamers play games with “competitive” settings (read: most settings set to low) and, in some cases, you can move a card two tiers up if all you do is playing Valorant, CS: GO, Fortnite, and RS: Siege on low settings to maximize your framerate.

Also, this GPU hierarchy tier list isn’t based on current prices because the market’s crazy right now with the recent mining boom, chip shortages, and other covid-related issues. This isn’t the best bang-for-the-buck GPU tier list; it’s a simple tier list based on pure gaming performance. Don’t forget that you’ll need a 

Next, we have a lot of GPUs being between two tiers in terms of performance. This can’t be avoided and you’ll be informed when we stumble upon a fringe case.

We’re starting with the 4K resolution at frames higher than 60. And, at the moment, only four graphics cards are capable of this kind of performance in the latest AAA hits and with (almost) all bells and whistles. You won’t be able to play Cyberpunk with Ray Tracing on max for instance. But everything else should run without issues at 60fps or above, with all settings set to ultra. 

Now, Nvidia’s biggest advantage here is DLSS. Yes, ray tracing looks cool and can be enjoyed with an RTX 3090 or the RTX 3080 at 4K, but that’s only possible because of DLSS. At 4K, DLSS looks pretty good in most titles, with the least amount of lost details. And now that DLSS has become available as a simple plugin for Unreal engine, we can expect more future titles coming with DLSS support. 

That said, both the RX 6900 XT and the RX 6800 XT are proper gaming beasts and they should be more than enough for running every modern game at 4K and at least 60fps. This is performance without ray tracing. If we’re being honest, if you’re looking for a new GPU because of ray tracing features, just get an RTX 3000 card. Also, is 10GB enough for 4K? At the moment, yes, but we cannot make any guarantees for the future. 

AMD’s answer to DLSS, FidelityFX Super Resolution, is a software solution, not a hardware one (remember, DLSS uses Tensor cores found in RTX chips) so we cannot expect the same level of quality as we’re seeing, for instance, with DLSS 2.0. Next, the first-gen DLSS had lots of caveats so we’re sure FidelityFX will suffer from the same issues, at least in the beginning.

Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti 8 GB GDDR6 256-bit

Tier A is for those who are ready to settle for [email protected] with some settings turned a notch (or two) in most modern AAA titles. The RX 6800 is the most powerful of the bunch and should run most games at 4K and 60fps with ultra settings (except ray tracing, of course).

High frame rate gamers can get these cards to run at around 60-100 fps at 1440p Ultrawide resolution. Further, some ray tracing games do run at 60fps+ with ray tracing (Control for instance) but don’t expect to run Cyberpunk 2077 with ray tracing (or even Ghostrunner for that matter) and get a steady 60 frames or more on an ultrawide. If you want the absolute best ultrawide experience, with ray tracing and triple-digit performance, get the RTX 3080. 

As for the 1440p resolution, these three cards are the sweet spot for high refresh rate gaming at 1440p. They have more than enough horsepower to run any modern game. In the case of the RTX 3070 and the RTX 2080 Ti, with ray tracing enabled (and DLSS, of course) and with a performance that can reach triple digits. But if you have a 144Hz or higher refresh rate monitor and want to reach those max refresh rates, think about getting the RTX 3080 or the RX 6800 XT. They both look like overkill for 1440p resolution but for 144fps or higher performance in AAA titles, you’ll want one of those.

AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT 8 GB GDDR6 256-bit
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11 GB GDDR5X 352-bit

Okay, this is an interesting tier since the RTX 3060 Ti is borderline Tier A. The card’s about 10-15 percent slower than the RTX 3070 so we placed it here. It can be used for [email protected] ultrawide gaming, but the performance difference is so small yet so large. 15 percent less in a game like Control with RTX turned on will make the game run just below 60fps at times. The same case is with Red Dead Redemption II or Metro Exodus. 

So, you can get the RTX 3060 Ti for a 1440p Ultrawide monitor, just get ready to drop some settings to get a stable 60fps experience. As for the regular 1440p resolution, the RTX 3060 Ti is a great bang for the buck 1440p card (or it will be once prices return to normal) since it can deliver 100 frames or more in most games without sacrificing too many details, all that while costing 20 percent less (we’re talking about MSRP here) than the RTX 3070. 

The two RTX 2080 cards are very similar in performance to the RTX 3060 Ti. The 2080 Super is basically the same as the RTX 3060 Ti (maybe about five percent slower on average), with the regular 2080 being about five to seven percent behind the 2080 Super. All three cards are perfect for 240Hz 1080p monitors as well as for the more common, 144Hz 1080p models. 

Finally, the RTX 2070 Super, GTX 1080 Ti, and the RX 5700 XT are three fringe cases. Performance-wise, these aren’t cards for the 1440p ultrawide resolution if you play AAA single-player games. They’re fine for 1440p, in most cases, just be ready to drop settings down to high in select titles. Of course, the RTX 2070 supports DLSS, which can help you achieve [email protected] with high settings in Cyberpunk, for instance.

When it comes to 1080p resolution, each of these cards can deliver at least 60fps at 1080 with all settings turned to maximum, even when playing some of the most demanding games at the moment (yes, we’re talking about Cyberpunk 2077 here).

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6 GB GDDR6 192-bit
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6 GB GDDR6 192-bit

Okay, tier C includes a lot of graphics cards and all of them have similar performance. The least powerful card in this tier, the GTX 1660 Super, is less than 30 percent less powerful than the RTX 2070. That said, every single of these cards can get you 60fps at 1440p resolution. Some of them, like the RTX 2070, can do this quite easily in most titles. Others will struggle, especially with recent AAA titles such as Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Cyberpunk 2077, or Watch Dogs: Legion.

So, if you want to play with ultra settings and [email protected], get a card from the tier above. If you want a [email protected] gaming experience, with ultra-high settings, get the RTX 2070 or the RTX 2060 Super. Other cards from this list are fine for 1440p resolution with medium/high details depending on the game. 

And when it comes to 1080p resolution, each of the Tier C cards is capable of running any game available today at 60 frames or higher. Sometimes you’ll have to adjust visual settings, other times you’ll be fine with ultra, but you can expect fluid 60fps or higher at 1080p with every card on this list.

AMD Radeon RX 570 8 GB GDDR5 256-bit

Okay, tier D is second to last and it contains cards that can run modern AAA games up to 60 frames at 1080p resolution. The GTX 1660 is another fringe case so if you’re ready for compromises and playing at medium (sometimes even low, aside from texture settings), you can use it for 1440p gaming.  

As for the performance at 1080p, you can play any game with most options turned to the maximum with a 40-60fps experience with any card here except the RX 570. Also, when it comes to Cyberpunk 2077, the GTX 1650 Super can run the game at about 45fps with settings turned to medium. 

But, in most cases, you’ll be able to get close or reach 60 frames per second in most modern AAA titles. The only question is whether you’re ready to drop most visual settings to medium or lower to get that kind of performance. You can use these cards with 144Hz gaming monitors, but only in some esports titles.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4 GB GDDR5 128-bit
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 4 GB GDDR5 128-bit

Last but not least we have a group of cards that are great for esports but will struggle running modern games with visual settings set too high. These cards are great budget choices in case you need a cheap GPU for esports titles and for an occasional AAA game. They’re also great in case you need a low-profile card for your HTPC, or need a placeholder GPU while waiting for the market to normalize. 

Performance in demanding games is pretty disappointing but if you’re ready to play with low details you’ll get playable frame rates in most modern titles. Sometimes you’ll also have to drop resolution below 1080p to get playable frame rates, but that’s the reality when owning a budget GPU. 

Now, if you’re thinking about getting one of these cards and the GTX 1060 3GB has caught your attention, skip it and get an RX 570 instead. The 1060 is more powerful but only 3GB of memory can really hurt it in modern games.

GPU Tier List 2022 — A Hierarchical Order [Updated List]

Choosing a proper functional GPU can be stressful, especially if the options are piled up against each other. In 2022, you will find zillions of graphics cards from Nvidia to AMD, and the list goes on. The best graphics cards are those which can pridefully stand out in the pool of competitors blessing you with 4k rendering and gaming enhancement.

Today, it’s harder than ever to select the card at first sight. The competition has been toughened by new cards incorporating the latest technology. It’s apparent when Nvidia released their 20-series, which involves RTX cards. These RTX cards enable Ray tracing technology giving you a photorealistic experience. The same rule applies to AMD cards, although they haven’t yet embedded the RTX technology, their neck-to-neck performance with top-tier Nvidia cards speaks volumes. There’s a serious rivalry between GTX 1060 and RX 580 for what they offer. But the question remains, what should you go for? Maybe the hierarchy model will guide you?

A sneak peek to the hierarchical order

Before jumping to the main session of the article, we will like to let you know that only if you are looking forward to enjoying games at constant FPS with a 144hz refresh rate, then this list is just made for you. It’s a gamer’s dream to have a beast working at his/her home. The list is based on FPS, and performance charts.

Well, the below-mentioned list was tested on suitable configurations and the benchmarks were recorded. We assure you that, the GPU tier list is authenticated, and goes in line with official records. So, without any further ado, let’s postmortem the performance data!

Tier S (Platinum)- The Gem GPUs

The platinum tier (S) consists of high-end GPUs that you can get your hands on. Surprisingly, Nvidia took the first tier without giving any space to AMD. Why? Well, the dominance exerted by Nvidia is due to the CUDA cores and the latest technology of RTX. Nvidia, in particular, provides high-end and up-to-the-mark GPUs.

As far as the price tags are concerned for the platinum tier, they are out of this world. They are highly expensive cards and can be bought by billionaires (pun intended). The reason for it being super expensive is acceptable because of the features these cards provide. If you are looking forward to getting a constant refresh rate with a 4k gaming experience, then these cards are just made for you. Not to mention, the newly incepted RTX in Minecraft is astonishing. Experience it already through these wonderful gem cards.

Notwithstanding, the Titan series is one of the series that can provide a threader effect on the system. It can run millions of processes simultaneously. If you aim to run a bunch of web servers then how about using the Titan V?

It has been recorded that these cards transgress the boundaries by 3%, giving you around 103% of gaming boost which is exceptional and phenomenal. What about rendering? It’s mind-blowing, with a minimum of 3-minute rendering time!

3)      Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Super
4)      Nvidia GeForce Titan V
5)      Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080
6)      Nvidia GeForce Titan XP

Tier A (High)-Vanity Cards

Tier A GPUs withhold the same position as the “Platinum” tier because of the similar performance charts. The reason for them being below the first tier is nothing, but a few fluctuations in FPS and price range. These cards are somewhat affordable if you have the vision of setting up a beast rig.

Surprisingly, Nvidia is still leading the second tier in terms of 4K and 1440P gaming. The reason was again the latest technology implemented in these new RTX cards. Here, we also witnessed AMD coming into role play. Two spots were taken by AMD Radeon VII and RX 5700 X because of the marvelous gaming experience proposed by the RDNA technology. It was recorded that AMD Radeon VII was competing against RTX 2080 in terms of rendering and gaming. There were only minor FPS drops, but it’s commendable for such a card to race against Platinum cards.

Notwithstanding, tier A proposed around 1.5 to 2 % Boost in the overall performance of the system. If you aim to render 3D models and experience high-end gaming environments, then Tier A should be your shot, because they are still affordable and can be juiced at any temperature.

Tier B (High-Mid Range)-Unparalleled performance

Tier B consists of those cards which can produce unparalleled performance and can be bought easily by enthusiasts. It’s a balance between both the price tags and what they offer. But here’s a problem. These cards can only fulfill the 1080P gaming experience with constant FPS. Basically, these cards were made to provide an Ultra-high-definition gaming and rendering experience.

Although you can still run 4K games with the right refresh rate of the monitor, you will not experience constant Frame rate generation. It’s sort of like that you are exceeding the threshold and pushing the limits that are not planned for such cards. It’s awe-inspiring to see AMD cards competing against the rival Nvidia cards. The top spot is taken by AMD RX 5700 which is by happenstance considered one of the high-end GPUs in this price range.

The reason is quite simple: AMD is planning to push contemporary technology to RDNA2 which is supportive of probably everything including Ray-trace technology. The push given by these AMD cards is constructive and worthy of what’s to come. If you are considering Nvidia cards in this tier, they are below AMD but are worth a try, especially the RTX 2060 to experience the Ray-tracing technology on games like Minecraft and Cyberpunk.

GPUs
1)      AMD Radeon RX 5700
2)      AMD Radeon RX Vega 64
3)      Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080
4)      Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060
5)      AMD Radeon RX Vega 56
6)      Nvidia GeForce 1070 Ti
7)      Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti

Tier C (Mid-Range)- Flawless performance cards

Tier C is targeted at mid-range gamers who can afford these GPUs at a reasonable price. These cards are renowned for providing 1080P gaming flawlessly. You can rely on GTX 1060 and AMD 580 for the best gaming performance. They both go neck-to-neck in competition and can be relied upon for a gaming spree. The problem here is that you can’t play games on 4K due to restricted support from these cards. It’s not like you can’t launch the games on 4k, but yeah you will experience a lot of stuttering and ricocheted temperatures.

Not to mention, in this tier, AMD superseded most of the Nvidia cards because of the performance provided by Polaris architecture. We’ll be honest, OpenCL is providing more room for upgraded performance than the CUDA fanboy club. If you are looking forward to having a 1080P experience with proper synching properties for your not-so-run-of-the-mill monitor, then these graphics cards are your last resort. My advice: go for AMD 580 from this tier!

GPUs
1)      AMD Radeon R9 Fury X
2)      AMD Radeon RX 590
3)      AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT
4)      AMD Radeon RX 580
5)      Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Super
6)      AMD Radeon R9 390
7)      Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060

Tier D (Mid-Low Range)-Budget gaming performance

The last tier is for those people who are into mediocre gaming with not so flashy graphics. This tier will do the job if you budget tight. Although 1080P gaming and rendering are still possible on these graphics cards, you can’t push the limits of the graphics card. Overclocking will be a bummer in the sense that, if your CPU is modern, and your GPU outdated, you might end up with a CPU bottleneck.

So as long as you are happy with medium settings gaming, then this tier is just for you. We will advise you to go for GTX 980 which is competing against 1050 and 1060 GPUs in terms of providing FPS and rendering performance. If you are an AMD user, then it’s advisable to go for AMD 570 or 560 which are budget GPUS suitable for you.

The ultimate wrap up!

The aforementioned tiers are not to degrade any potential gamer or a professional editor. The sequential order was tested against setups to confirm authenticity. In short, if you have enough money to sustain your dream beast, then tier S should be your ideal goal for professional usage and gaming purposes. Similarly, if the affordability remains you can either go for Tier A, B or C depending on your budget. Well, on the other hand, if you are tight on budget and still looking for decent and discernable performance, then tier D is just for you.

The tiers are also subject to change depending on the release of new products with new technology. We hope this guide directed you in the right direction.

The Gem Graphics cards

The top tier of GPUs is the Platinum Collection (S). These cards have all sorts of advanced technology and are only available to high-end gamers, billionaires, or those with deep pockets. 

That’s because they provide features that no other card does – like RTX Technology from Nvidia, which brings true gaming immersion into reality by using super-fast graphics rendering processes on your screen, so you feel like time has almost stopped while playing games such VRAM allows users access up to 12 GB.

Vanity Graphics cards

Tier A GPUs are the same as Platinum Tiers because of their similar performance stats. The reason for not being above Tier 1 is nothing but a few ups and downs in FPS and cost range.  

This can make these cards somewhat affordable if you have a vision for setting up an awesome rig like that! Surprisingly Nvidia still leads the second tier when it comes to 4K/ 1440P gaming with the newest technology implemented into RTX card–and here witnessed AMD coming back into role play by taking two spots.

Unparalleled Performance Graphics cards

Gosh, Tier B is the best! It has cards that can produce unparalleled performance and are easy to buy. The balance between price tag and what they offer makes them perfect for enthusiasts who want premium quality without breaking their bank accounts or not being able to find a card in stores nearby (plus, these ones don’t need much power). 

But there’s one problem -these high-end graphics cards only provide an Ultra HD gaming experience which means 4K games won’t run properly. So unless you have monitors capable of enough refresh rates so basically, if your computer doesn’t meet those requirements, then this tier isn’t a good choice.

Conclusion:

To get the most out of your system, you need a graphics card that has been tailored just for gaming. The best cards will fit into one tier as determined by three different qualities: price-performance ratio (PPR), thermal output, and power consumption levels! 

These tiers can vary depending on what’s most important to each individual gamer or editor in terms of features. They aren’t meant to degrade potential gamers with less money but rather offer guidance about which product would suit their needs best.  

While meeting those particular criteria – so take it accordingly when deciding between A-D+ models above. If affordability matters, then go ahead and pick whichever option. HAPPY GAMING!

GPU Hierarchy 2018 – An Updated GPU Tier List For Processors 

image source

An average gamer is the one who just sits, plays, and forgets. A serious or hardcore gamer is the one who wants to play and enjoy every moment of the way. Hence, he is the one who wants to get the right CPU, GPU, and every other thing needed. The problem is that getting the right components such as the GPU isn’t the easiest thing to do because while you have a busy GPU hierarchy with many coming in, understanding what is needed is yet another problem. But that is why We are here.

A GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) is an important component of the computer that enhances the display and rendering of images on your computer. Hence, getting a good monitor that will be able to give you a 4k gaming experience is just the beginning of the journey; getting the right GPU is the conclusion- it may as well be the other way round.

To get the straight things straight, there is a price tag on whatever gaming experience you have set out to get. Essentially, if you are out for a 4k, 2k, or any other gaming experience, you will have to put your money where your urge is. But more than that, reaching the top tier may also require that apart from upgrading your GPU, you also upgrade other components such as the CPU in order to have a balanced setup.

Tier 1 is where the beast of GPUs lie, collecting together the most powerful cards the market has to offer at the moment. It is the one that has the broad shoulder to take on any graphics from 4k to the least available gaming graphics and deliver them with 100 percent conviction.

What makes this tier very interesting is that it is only NVIDIA that enjoys full control with the Nvidia GeForce Titan V, Titan XP, and GTX 1080 Ti as AMD is still yet to stretch to be in this class. The memory you get here is 12 GB at the max and 11 GB at the minimum.

With all that it has to offer, you will not cough out anything less than a thousand bucks or something close to that to have this piece. It is because of this that it will not be the GPU that will be recommended for you except you are a hardcore gamer who dumps the old game once a new one comes on the way or one who plays everything that the gaming world has to offer.

To really get the tango with this GPU, it will really take more than just the GPU as you will also need a monitor that can run 4K. So at the end of the day, it is a heavy investment to make but one that will be worth it for someone who really needs it.

If you have chewed the gaming cud and have decided that Tier 1 is not the next grass for you, the Tier 2 is also green for a passionate gamer who wants to sell his soul and still keep it. The cards on the GPU hierarchy are able to breeze through 2K games and deliver 30-60 FPS in 4K resolution.

Many serious gamers find themselves in this category because the cards come less expensive than Tier 1 pieces, but they still deliver a consistent gaming experience with many recent games.

Both AMD and NVIDIA’s GPUs are strong here, even though as you would expect, NVIDIA has a foot over the finish line before AMD.

Tier 3

This is where the world changes for gamers in a couple of ways: the GPUs are in the affordable range and they can play many recent games. Hence, it is here that many serious gamers get to make a pick. More so they deliver detailed and strong 1080p as well as bold 30-60fps for 2K graphics.

With both AMD and Nvidia making a great show in this zone, the adventure that has become extremely hard for it is when it comes to 4K gaming experience.

From all indications, the GPUs here are going to hold the ground for people who want good gaming experience without having to break a bank for the next 3 to 4 years before it will find itself slipping down the hierarchy.

Lower than those found on Tier 3, the GPUs here are higher than what is offered on Tier 5. It is for those whose appetite does not go beyond classic games as well as 60FPS 1080p games. The gaming experience it delivers on 60FPS 1080p is much bolder than what Tier 5 GPUs offer. Nonetheless, when demanding titles make the list, the GPU may fail you with very little apology.

The 1080p performance of the cards here is solid and they can even play some recent games but as stated, there are points where it would be unable to give answers to some questions on performance.

The GPU models in Tier 5 are the most affordable in the GPU hierarchy but they are likewise the least performing.  With anything from 60FPS 1080p going down, the gaming experience will be stable, but once you hit it any harder with a more demanding game, you will experience a lot of stuttering.

Cheapest in the line of GPUs, these are the ones for those who are occasional gamers and those who only do basic stuff on computers. If you only stick with classic games or MOBA games, going for this may be worth it but when you get thirsty for more recent games, you may find yourself without help.

Conclusion

What does it profit a man to spend heavily on an expensive GPU and still come to end up only as an average gamer? Before you settle down to get for yourself a GPU irrespective of the tier, the most important thing to do is to define the kind of gamer you are because getting a Tier 1 or even a Tier 2 piece may be utterly useless for someone who only plays games occasionally.

Obviously, everyone who plays games wants to have the best experience, which is the 4K experience, but for now, the cost may not be what a lot of people can afford. The good news, however, is that in a few years, 4K will be in the mainstream and the more expensive GPUs will have no option but to come down in price.

gaming graphics card tier list

Gaming

Want to know how different graphics cards (GPUs) compare to each other? We have made this tier list of all current generation graphics cards.

Variety is both a blessing and a curse in the world of PC gaming.

The number of hardware options to choose from can be overwhelming, especially when you need to find a product that best suits your needs. needs y budget .

To help you find the right graphics card, we’ve put together a table that ranks GPUs based on their performance. This will make it easier for you to narrow down your selection.

We have analyzed thousands of benchmarks from renowned manufacturers, third-party testers, and outlets to create the ultimate GPU tier list .

We keep this hierarchy up-to-date as new GPUs come out, so be sure to bookmark the page and check back for up-to-date information.

Below you will find all the GPUs mentioned above grouped into various tiers based on the type of performance they offer.

Note that these are only approximations based on the most demanding AAA games . Since the hardware requirements and optimization differ greatly from game to game, it is difficult to provide an accurate overview of the type of performance each GPU offers.

As such, the different tiers are only there to give you a general impression of what kind of performance you can expect from these GPUs. If you have your sights set on a GPU and would like to know precisely how it will perform in a specific game, it is probably a good idea to search for some benchmarks.

S level

The first level is made up of the best and most powerful GPUs currently on the market. They can maintain a stable 60 FPS when running the latest AAA game in 4K, and they can hit higher frame rates at 1440p more easily than weaker GPUs.

Nvidia GPU AMD GPU
Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 AMD Radeon RX 6900XT
Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 AMD Radeon RX 6800XT
Nvidia Titan RTX

Level A

The second tier is comprised of 4K-ready GPUs, such as those that can provide solid 4K performance. However, they tend to be a better overall fit for games at 1440p. We found that they are capable of delivering more consistent performance and higher frame rates at that resolution.

Nvidia GPU AMD GPU
Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti AMD Radeon RX 6800
Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 AMD Radeon VII
Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti AMD Radeon RX 50 XT 5700th Anniversary
Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Super AMD Radeon RX 5700XT
Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080
Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 Super
Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070
Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 Super

Level B

Tier 4 GPUs are capable of handling XNUMXK, although in more demanding games they can barely maintain playable frame rates at such a high resolution. As such, they are better options for 1440p. When it comes to 1080p, they can hit triple-digit frame rates with relative ease in certain games.

Nvidia GPU AMD GPU
Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 AMD Radeon RX 5600XT
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Super

Level C

The fourth tier includes weaker GPUs that are only powerful enough to handle playable 1440p frame rates. As such, they are better options for 1080p games, as they can more easily maintain stable frame rates at that resolution.

Nvidia GPU AMD GPU
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 AMD Radeon RX 5500XT
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Super AMD Radeon RX 590

Level d

Finally, the fifth level includes the weakest GPUs currently available. These GPUs can only hope to maintain a stable 60 FPS at 1080p and are generally not powerful enough if you plan to plug them into a 1440p display and play games on it at that resolution.

Nvidia GPU AMD GPU
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 AMD Radeon RX 580
AMD Radeon RX 570

Conclusion

These separate tiers are only supposed to give you a general impression of the kind of performance you can expect from your GPUs. So if you are looking for more accurate performance metrics, be sure to look for some benchmarks.

You should also consider the types of games you will play before deciding on a GPU. Keep in mind that even the weakest GPUs mentioned in our tier list are more than reasonable if you’re playing Fortnite or CS: GO, for example.

A graphic card is the soul of any gaming pc or laptop, and if you don’t have a good GPU, your games will underperform, and you will face lagging issues. So without any further delay, let’s get it started.

      What is a GPU or Graphics Card?

      A GPU is a dedicated processing component responsible for only video rendering, 3D animation and video playback. In simple terms, it is a higher efficient processor that helps create videos and play games. In modern computing, GPUs are part of the entire system architecture since literally everything that comes close to the computer has one, e.g. Smartphone, laptop, workstation, PC, Playstation etc.

      The GPU arose as a complement to the CPU, its near cousin (central processing unit). GPUs are specifically built to accelerate computer graphics applications. Knowing about the GPU rankings when looking for a system might help you get the one that best suits your needs.

      How to Pick the Best Graphics Card?

      Picking the best graphics card for your laptop or PC is an important task. Though multiple factors come into play while choosing the best graphics card, these few that I have mentioned in this article are vital.

      1. Look for a Latest Graphics card

      The first thing to remember is to pick up the latest graphics card. GPU technology is changing very rapidly, and it is essential to pick the latest graphics card if your want a top-notch performance without any issues. Also, ensure that your new graphics is not more than one year old until and unless you’re running out of budget.

      2. Higher Graphics Processor Clock Speed

      Like CPU, Graphics cards also have processors and clock speed, while buying a new graphics card ensures that it has a good clock speed. Unfortunately, there is no simple way to put this; however, if you’re planning to play those graphics driven Cyberpunk 2077, you might require a graphics card with more than 1000Mhz of clock speed. It’s not like that game will not run on the graphics with a lower clock speed, but you might face some frame lag.

      3. Higher Graphics Memory

      Another essential aspect of a graphics card is video memory. Simply put, always go for a graphics card with higher video memory. The more memory you have, the more video processing capacity your graphics card will have. This means that eventually, your games will get more space to render the 3D graphics, shaders, details, shadows etc.

      GPU Hierarchy 2021:

      Gaming Graphics Card Tier List

      Want to see how different graphics cards (GPUs) compare to each other? We have compiled this tiered list of all current generation graphics cards.

      Variety is both a blessing and a curse in the gaming world.

      The number of equipment options to choose from can be overwhelming, especially when you need to find the product that best suits your needs. requirements y budget .

      To help you find the right graphics card, we’ve compiled a table that ranks GPUs by their performance. This will make your choice easier.

      We’ve analyzed thousands of benchmarks from well-known manufacturers, third-party testers, and outlets to come up with the ultimate GPU tier list.

      We keep this hierarchy up to date as new GPUs become available, so be sure to bookmark this page and check back for updates.

      Below you will find all the GPUs mentioned above, grouped into different tiers based on the type of performance they offer.

      Please note that are only estimates based on the most demanding AAA games. . Because hardware requirements and optimizations vary greatly from game to game, it’s hard to give an accurate idea of ​​the type of performance that each GPU offers.

      So the different levels are just to give you a general idea of ​​what kind of performance you can expect from these GPUs. If you’re targeting a GPU and want to know exactly how it will perform in a particular game, it’s probably a good idea to look around for some benchmarks.

      Level S

      The first level consists of the best and most powerful GPUs currently on the market. They can maintain a solid 60fps when running the latest AAA game at 4K resolution, and it’s easier to hit higher framerates at 1440p than weaker GPUs.

      Nvidia GPU AMD GPU
      Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT
      Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT
      Nvidia Titan RTX

      Tier A

      The second tier consists of 4K capable GPUs, such as those that can provide stable 4K performance. However, they are generally better suited for 1440p gaming. We found that they were able to deliver more consistent performance and higher frame rates at this resolution.

      Nvidia GPU AMD GPU
      Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti AMD Radeon RX 6800
      Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 AMD Radeon VII
      Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti AMD Radeon RX 50 XT 5700 years old
      Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Super AMD Radeon RX 5700XT
      Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080
      Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 Super
      Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070
      Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 Super

      Level b

      Level 4 GPUs are capable of handling XNUMXK, although in more demanding games they can barely maintain playable frame rates at such a high resolution. Thus, they are the best options for 1440p. As for 1080p, they can hit triple-digit frame rates relatively easily in some games.

      Nvidia GPU AMD GPU
      Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT
      Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti
      Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Super

      Tier C

      The fourth tier includes weaker GPUs that are powerful enough to handle 1440p playable frame rates. As such, they are the best options for 1080p gaming as it is easier for them to maintain consistent frame rates at that resolution.

      Nvidia GPU AMD GPU
      Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT
      Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Super AMD Radeon RX 590

      Level d

      Finally, the fifth level includes the weakest GPUs currently available. These GPUs can only hope to maintain a solid 60fps at 1080p and are generally underpowered if you plan on plugging them into a 1440p display and playing games on it at that resolution.

      Nvidia GPU AMD GPU
      Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 AMD Radeon RX 580
      AMD Radeon RX 570

      Conclusion

      These individual levels are just to give you a general idea of ​​the performance you can expect from your GPUs. So if you’re looking for more accurate performance metrics, be sure to look for benchmarks.

      You should also consider the types of games you will be playing before choosing a GPU. Keep in mind that even the weakest GPUs mentioned in our tier list are more than reasonable if you play Fortnite or CS:GO, for example.

            Recommended Video Cards for Archicad 22 | Knowledgebase Page

            Recommendations for Windows Users

            To take full advantage of OpenGL 3. 2 hardware acceleration, we recommend that you use graphics cards with at least 1024 MB of memory.

            We do not recommend using the following graphics cards:

            • NVidia Quadro FX and Quadro (Fermi architecture)
            • AMD FireGl

            Installing video card drivers

            Proper operation of the video card is possible only if the software (driver) created by the card manufacturer is installed correctly (using a driver built into the operating system is not recommended). It may happen that the remnants of a previous driver installation affect the performance of the current installation. If you experience any of the problems listed below, please perform a «clean install» of the driver. A «clean install» refers to the complete removal of all previous driver files before installing it again. Unfortunately, simply using the uninstall function may not be enough. Therefore, it is better to use specialized tools such as AMD Clean Uninstall Utility or third-party utilities such as Driver Cleaner, Driver Fusion and DDU Display Driver Uninstaller. Please note that such tools should only be used as a last resort.

            Graphics Card Drivers

            Nvidia Quadro Certified Driver Windows 10: R390 U5 (391.58), release date: 2018.05.07.

            AMD FirePro and Radeon Pro Certified Driver: 18.Q3, Release Date: 2018.08.27

            Nvidia GeForce Windows 10 Driver: R390 U5 (391.58), Release Date: 2018.05.07.

            AMD Radeon Driver: 18.5.1, Release Date: 2018.05.23

            “Professional” or “Gaming” graphics cards

            Graphics card manufacturers typically have product lines designed specifically for “gamers” and for “professional users”. While the hardware of these types of cards is almost identical to each other, there are significant differences in their firmware and driver software. “Gaming” cards (such as Nvidia GeForce and AMD/ATI Radeon) are optimized for 3D games where speed is more important than image quality. Typically, 3D models used in games contain a small number of polygons with textures applied to them. At the same time, the number of polygons in CAD modeling can be quite significant, and the quality of a still image rendered in wireframe or shaded mode is more important than navigation speed. In addition, the use of memory by professional graphics cards is optimized for working with multiple application windows, which is absolutely not relevant in games. Another key difference between the two product lines is how they are built and supported. Professional graphics cards (such as Nvidia Quadro and AMD FirePro) are built to the specifications of their video chip manufacturers, so you can always be sure that the drivers used for them are developed by the card manufacturers (such as Nvidia or AMD). Products created by game card manufacturers (such as ASUS, Sapphire, Gigabyte, PNY, etc.) may not conform to the technical specifications of video chip manufacturers, which may lead to incomplete compatibility of card drivers with chip drivers. It is also worth noting that the life cycle of gaming card products and drivers is significantly shorter. GRAPHISOFT partners with:

            • Nvidia when testing and certifying the Nvidia Quadro K, M and P series graphics cards.
            • AMD when testing and certifying the AMD FirePro W and Radeon Pro WX series graphics cards.

            Notebook graphics drivers

            Drivers created by Nvidia and AMD also support graphics cards designed specifically for notebooks. However, there are laptop manufacturers that create their own drivers. If you are experiencing display issues on your laptop and your laptop manufacturer does not have an updated driver version that fixes the problem, you can try at your own risk to install the desktop version of the driver on your laptop. Remember that this is not welcomed by laptop manufacturers. In this case, you can use the following tools: FLEM ATI Radeon Legacy Modder / Nvidia legacy laptop drivers.

            Recommended Notebook Graphics Cards

            There are professional graphics cards found in high-end laptops, such as the Nvidia Quadro and Radeon Pro, that are no different from their desktop counterparts. We have positive experience with most of the dedicated Nvidia GeForce graphics cards; somewhat worse results when working with AMD/ATI; and the results of using the built-in video chipsets are completely unsatisfactory. The latter are best avoided. Although their performance has improved somewhat recently, they still provide very slow performance for 3D modeling applications such as ARCHICAD.

            Frame rate, monitor refresh rate, and navigation smoothness

            It is important to note that 30 fps is enough to achieve smooth 3D navigation, and at 60 fps, movements will be very smooth even with fast navigation.

            This statement should be the most important aspect when choosing a graphics card. To be more precise, the maximum frame refresh rate provided by the video card is directly related to the refresh rate of the monitor. The refresh rate of a monitor is the number of times the image on the monitor refreshes in one second. If the frame refresh rate from the video card is higher than the monitor refresh rate, then this will not improve the smoothness of navigation in any way, but it may lead to the appearance of artifacts (tearing in the image). To prevent this side effect, most graphics card drivers include a Vertical Synchronization (V-sync) setting that, by default, limits the frame rate to match the capabilities of the connected monitor. In ARCHICAD, this function is active in 3D navigation.

            Most monitors support a refresh rate of 60 MHz, which corresponds to 60 frames per second. These monitors are the best for smooth 3D navigation in ARCHICAD, since all monitors with higher refresh rates are generally designed for games where very fast image transitions without tearing, flickering or blurring are the most important aspect.

            If a card supports an average frame rate between 30 and 60 frames per second, then it is definitely suitable for navigation in ARCHICAD.

            In conclusion, in the last few years, Nvidia G-Sync or AMD FreeSync technologies have begun to appear in monitors, allowing video cards to manage monitors with variable refresh rates. While both of these technologies are primarily focused on maximizing frame rates in games, they also improve the smoothness of 3D navigation at low frame rates (less than 30 fps). This is achieved through a hardware-based algorithm that inserts additional frames to increase the smoothness of their transition and prevent image judder. If these technologies are supported by your monitor and graphics card, then navigation will be smooth even at very low frame rates (up to 10 frames per second).


            Mac Video Card Drivers

            To take full advantage of OpenGL 3.2 hardware acceleration, we recommend using video cards with at least 1024 MB of memory. We can’t recommend any specific graphics cards or drivers because Macs come pre-installed with graphics cards (for some series, you can optionally replace the card) and graphics drivers are built into system updates. The macOS Quartz graphics engine prevents applications from directly accessing the graphics card’s functions, minimizing potential application display issues. There are no third party drivers for Mac. Drivers built by Apple into their operating system are very thoroughly tested for compatibility with OpenGL, since the Quartz graphics core is based on OpenGL technology. This is the big difference between the Mac platform and the PC, for which there are hundreds of video cards available. Drivers produced by different vendors are mostly optimized for games and DirectX, but not for CAD and OpenGL. You can be sure that all graphics cards used in current versions of Mac are compatible with ARCHICAD. For better performance, we recommend that you choose a Mac with a discrete card. Integrated Intel Iris chipsets meet the requirements of ARCHICAD, but their performance is quite limited.

            External GPUs in macOS

            Thunderbolt 3 external graphics processing units (eGPUs) are supported in macOS High Sierra 10.13.4. integrated video cards with limited power and video memory. In this way, for example, you can significantly expand the capabilities of computers with Intel Iris graphics cards by increasing their 3D performance, increasing the amount of video memory and connecting additional ultra-high resolution monitors. However, if your computer has a latest generation discrete graphics card and you are not going to use additional monitors yet, then you probably should not rush to purchase an external GPU, since video cards located inside the eGPU are significantly slower than those connected to internal PCIe slots. That is, in such situations, the performance gain due to external processing of video data is not comparable with the cost of such an upgrade.

            We will provide more information in the near future based on more comprehensive tests of some external GPUs.


            Archicad 22 Video Card Test Results

            Below are the performance test results of various video cards installed in standard configuration computers with monitors of various resolutions. The measurements were performed with the definition of single-threaded processor performance. Video cards were tested on small (250,000 polygons), medium (1,600,000 polygons) and large projects (10,000,000 polygons) in 64-bit Windows 10 operating system. The FPS value refers to the frames per second rate of 3D navigation in ARCHICAD.

            In addition to the power of the video card, there are other factors that affect the speed of 3D navigation. The main role in 3D navigation is assigned to the central processing unit (CPU), which transmits data to the graphics processing unit (GPU) for processing and displaying the image. If the CPU can’t send data to the GPU fast enough, then it becomes impossible to use the full power of the graphics card. Therefore, in order to avoid the bottleneck effect, it is very important to choose the right combination of CPU and GPU. Please note that only one CPU core is used for 3D navigation. For this reason, it is important to consider the single-thread performance of the CPU.

            Another important factor that affects the speed of 3D navigation is the monitor resolution. The higher the resolution of the monitor, the greater the load on the central and graphic processors. Increasing the resolution increases the size of the frame that the GPU must process. Therefore, the speed (number of frames) decreases as the resolution increases.

            Finally, the memory size of the video card is important. When opening a file and switching to the 3D window, the memory of the video card is used first, and as it fills up, the use of random access memory (RAM) begins, which is much slower than processing 3D operations. Therefore, it is desirable to avoid the involvement of RAM in these operations, that is, the memory of the video card should be sufficient to process the model. There is no rule or strict relationship between project file size and video card load, because ARCHICAD saves information about model object parameters, not polygon coordinates. Huge files with many parameters require large amounts of memory. Some geometry settings that are set to high resolution or high segmentation create additional overhead. There are situations when the size of the model itself does not exceed a few kilobytes, but the parameters and textures used in it require a large amount of video memory. Therefore, the required amount of video card memory is not always directly dependent on the size of the model. We recommend using graphics cards with at least 1 GB of memory for medium-sized projects, but if you are working with ultra-high resolution monitors, then this amount should be at least doubled.

            Test results — Windows 10

            ARCHICAD 22 was tested with the following graphics cards:

            Small project (250,000 polygons) — FPS value:

            Medium project (1,600,000 polygons) — FPS value: 902

            Large project (10,000,000 polygons) — FPS value::


            Video cards tested for BIMx

            Below are the results obtained when testing the BIMx application using various video cards. Testing was performed on the basis of a fairly complex model of the Shanghai Park Hotel with calculated Global Illumination. Tests were performed on Windows 10. Speed ​​refers to the number of frames per second when navigating a model with Global Illumination and Shadows enabled.

            Test results — Windows 10

            BIMx has been tested with the following graphics cards:

            GeForce RTX 3090 Ti: the new king of the graphics mountain | ROG

            For a while, the GeForce RTX 3090 held the title of the fastest consumer-grade graphics card. The sheer number of cores, high-speed video memory, and a suite of GeForce RTX series-exclusive technologies have made it the go-to choice for gamers looking for the highest possible performance in high-end resolutions, and for content creators who needed a lot of fast video memory. Now a new contender is entering the scene. NVIDIA GeForce RTX 309 GPU0 Ti is ready to offer even higher levels of performance to demanding enthusiasts. ASUS specialists implemented its capabilities in the form of two video cards: ROG Strix LC GeForce RTX 3090 Ti and TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3090 Ti — with water and air cooling, respectively.

            The new GeForce RTX 3090 Ti series graphics cards are bigger and better in every important way. The list of improvements is crowned with an increased frequency of the huge (24 GB) GDDR6X video memory array. Now its speed is 21 Gb / s, which is significantly higher than 19.5Gbps for the GeForce RTX 3090. All in all, these are the GeForce RTXs you should choose if you want the highest frame rates in 4K resolution, the most realistic graphics, and the best performance in all tasks that use GPU-based hardware acceleration.

            ROG Strix LC GeForce RTX 3090 Ti: The Art of Water Cooling

            To unleash the full speed potential of this revolutionary GPU, we’re using the ROG Strix LC GeForce RTX 309 graphics card0 Ti closed loop water cooling system. It includes a special water block that covers both the graphics chip and the GDDR6X video memory, which provides excellent cooling for those components that directly affect the speed of the device. The 560mm tubing gives enough flexibility for heatsink placement, even in large computer cases or water-cooled CPU configurations. The 240mm radiator is equipped with a pair of 120mm addressable backlit fans. They are able to move large volumes of air, creating high static pressure. An additional low-profile heatsink with a fan is installed under the video card casing, which is responsible for cooling the power elements. As a result, the device has a rather thin form factor of 2.6 slots.

            The video card is equipped with many features that make it easy to install and configure. If you forget to connect additional power through the 16-pin connector, you will be reminded of this by the LED indicator, which will be constantly lit. If this indicator flickers, then the video card is receiving power, but not enough. A pair of FanConnect II connectors are used to connect case fans — they can be used to provide additional air flow when the video card is under load. The BIOS dual mode switch allows you to choose between maximum performance (with high frequencies and enhanced cooling) and quiet operation (at the cost of some performance degradation). And finally, the graphics card can become completely silent by automatically stopping the fans under low loads.

            ROG Strix LC GeForce RTX 3090 Ti is great for demo builds. Its casing is decorated with angular text inscriptions and parallel lines. Addressable LEDs are placed on the device itself and on the radiator fans, the visual effects of which can be easily synchronized with the illumination of other Aura-compatible components using Aura Sync technology.

            TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3090 Ti Flying High

            New Design Cooler Powers TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3090 Ti excellent air cooling. It’s designed for enthusiasts looking for uncompromising stability and impressive performance in a simple and practical package. Beneath it lies a massive heatsink in the form factor of 3.2 slots, which is ready to provide a low temperature for the GPU, video memory and power elements under any load.

            A trio of Axial-tech fans are capable of pumping a huge amount of air through a heatsink with a large surface area. Each fan is 1.5cm thick to raise static pressure, and all three fans have half-thickness restrictor rings to help focus airflow. The central fan rotates clockwise, while the other two rotate in the opposite direction. This helps reduce turbulence. This solution allows you to use the fans at high speeds and provide more airflow through the radiator without increasing the noise level. A separate heatsink is responsible for cooling the GDDR6X video memory array. Under light loads, the fans stop and the graphics card becomes silent. The full-length backplate is adorned with TUF Gaming styling. A slot is made in front of the printed circuit board — this is another outlet for hot air from the radiator.

            The TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3090 Ti features a host of enthusiast-focused optimizations that enhance the computing experience. The Auto-Extreme technology, used throughout the product line, implies a fully automated assembly and soldering process, which increases the reliability and quality of the finished product, because the risk of human errors is completely eliminated. 144-hour testing and capacitors that comply with military-industrial standards also contribute to reliable operation of the device and increase its service life. In addition, the TUF Gaming graphics card can be personalized to match the look of the rest of your computer by customizing its Aura lighting.

            A new level of performance requires more power, so our GeForce RTX 3090 Ti graphics cards are more power efficient than their predecessors. To ensure they operate properly, we recommend using a 1000W or greater power supply, depending on the specifications of the rest of your computer components. You can choose from our ROG Strix and ROG Thor series models. Equipped with massive heatsinks and quiet Axial-tech fans, these power supplies are ready to meet the demands of new graphics cards.

            For those who are not afraid to demand the best

            Progress does not stand still. The GeForce RTX 3090 Ti breaks the rules and rightfully wins the title of the fastest graphics card in the revolutionary NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 lineup. Don’t miss the chance to take your PC to the next level — get yourself a ROG Strix LC GeForce RTX 3090 Ti or TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3090 Ti graphics card !

            Top 5 games that will load the video card to the full

            For owners of gaming computers, one of the critical components is the video card. The next round began with the implementation of ray tracing technology, which made it possible to achieve greater realism on the screen. However, even without ray tracing, a top-end video card adds beauty, and in some genres, the much-needed fps without sacrificing picture quality. We found five demanding games with which we tried to load the ASUS ROG Flow X13 laptop to the fullest.

            We’ve compiled a list of the most GPU-demanding games, regardless of their release date. Therefore, the “oldies” who have earned the title of “benchmarks” and something newer will be presented here. And in the fall, we are waiting for replenishment: the release of at least new Battlefield and Call of Duty will soon take place, which are distinguished by gluttony, and Far Cry 6, with graphics settings turned to the maximum, will probably want a lot of fast video memory.

            In the era of 4K and high screen refresh rates, hardware is required to give the maximum. However, gamers often have to make some compromises: for this reason, with ever-growing screen diagonals, Full HD resolution remains the most popular. For example, according to Steam statistics, the vast majority of screens have a resolution of 1980×1080. This allows you to achieve an excellent picture by turning all the sliders of the graphics settings to the maximum.

            We decided to unscientifically test whether the top graphics card — Nvidia RTX 3080 — can handle popular benchmark games that have spoiled gamers a lot of blood in the past. Although the first one on the list is doing it right now.

            1. Deathloop

            The most recent example from the collection: the game was released on September 14th. The minimum configuration, which assumes 1080p and 30 fps at low settings as a starting point, indicates graphics cards of the GTX 1060 or RX 580 level. However, even the minimum configuration can cause some internal distress if the computer hardware has not been updated in recent years.

            In order to provide a high-quality picture, Deathloop will have to feed an even more recent generation of video cards: RTX 2060 or RX 5700, preferably with the appropriate processors. But for ultra settings, you need an RTX 3080 or RX 6800 XT.

            Against the backdrop of Far Cry 6 (in absentia), Deathloop seems more demanding. However, in practice, things may not be so dramatic. Just be ready.

            In our gaming test, we first ran Deathloop at the laptop’s native screen resolution — Full HD — and with the settings cranked up to the maximum. Obviously, the RTX 3080 handled the picture with a bang. It looks beautiful and sometimes even beautiful.

            The second step was to connect a 4K TV (the screen of which actually has a resolution of 3840×2160 pixels). The smoothness when moving was leveled, although the fps remained at an acceptable level, but in the menu the cursor movements were like in jelly, with inertia. If you play with the settings and do not focus on the fact that not all graphical “goodies” are visible to the eye, you can achieve excellent results without sacrificing performance.

            There may be several reasons, by the way. Users complain about the insufficient optimization of Deathloop: at startup, for example, it cursed at the lack of video memory (!), Although it consumed well if it was a third. Probably, over time, the situation will be corrected.

            2. Cyberpunk 2077

            No such rating can do without the pain of the current era — the dystopia of Cyberpunk 2077. One of the most anticipated projects of the last decade has also become a model of how you can sit in a puddle (albeit not completely).

            The game is notable for a wide range of supported components — from the simplest and a little «stale» to the most relevant. And this is where the nuances begin. More precisely, confirmation of the rule that a video card and a processor from the «minimum system requirements» do not at all guarantee any decent playability.

            So Cyberpunk 2077 could theoretically run on a GTX 780 as well, creating a sense of involvement. However, 3 GB VRAM will not be enough in practice, and you will need at least a GTX 1060 (GTX 1660 Super) or RX 590 with 6 GB of memory to play comfortably. Want ray tracing in Full HD? Then you need an RTX 2060 or better, and 4K resolution is available on the RTX 2080 Super, RTX 3070, or Radeon RX 6800 XT.

            The maximum (this is when both 4K and RTX) Cyberpunk 2077 will be issued on an RTX 3080 video card with 10 GB. Theoretically…

            Once again, on a native monitor, the picture causes oohs and aahs, on a large screen with 4K resolution and ultra settings, you have to put up with the loss of smoothness — this feeling is familiar to gamers who are used to instant screen response. It is possible that the TV itself also contributes.

            3. Battlefield V

            Released in 2018, the game still impresses with its graphics and campaign story.

            According to the official EA website, a GTX 1050, RX 560 (or even a GTX 660 or HD 7850) will be enough to play Battlefield V. If you want a really high-quality picture, at one time you would have to fork out for an RTX 2080 or at least an RTX 2070 if you wanted to play multiplayer modes properly.

            With bated breath, we launched the already forgotten game. You could watch the intro videos endlessly — not a drop of brakes in both Full HD and 4K. And again the situation changed as soon as the actual gameplay began. It was in Battlefield V that the most noticeable subsidence in fps was noticed — up to 22. Although these were rather fleeting friezes. If you do not pay attention to them, the picture is just a feast for the eyes.

            In fact, any game on a fresh GPU is seen in a completely different light — both literally and figuratively. And Battlefield V also knows how to keep both the gamer and his computer in suspense.

            4. Metro: Exodus (Enhanced Edition)

            A game that makes you want to wander around the subway, because it is in the subway tunnels that all the most interesting things happen (but you can’t). Although there is plenty to do outside. At one time it was one of the most anticipated games, it received praise from reviewers and ordinary gamers. Probably, such experiences will again flood with the release of the new S.T.A.L.K.E.R.

            In 2019, we found out by our example that Metro: Exodus is quite pleasing to the eye and playable on conditionally “ancient” GTX 9 level video cards70, and the minimum requirements indicated the GTX 670, as well as the GTX 1050 and HD 7870. But for the most juicy picture, something like an RTX 2080 Ti or, as in our case, an RTX 3080 is required.

            Metro: Exodus (Enhanced Edition), which was released in the spring, there are two top presets in terms of graphics quality: “ultra” and “extreme”. In the first case, at 4K, the video card showed values ​​\u200b\u200bin the region of 40 fps. With bated breath we set the «extreme» image quality. A beautiful autumn location is loading, which echoes the season outside the window. At such moments, you begin to understand what kind of work game developers are doing and how much is lost if the components do not pull.

            The fps readings dropped to 30, but did not fall below 28. There is no serious difference between the «ultra» and «extreme» settings (especially on a large screen, which you can’t sit close to), so to «save» frames, we leave less resource-demanding ones. Well, when the picture resembles a photograph.

            5. Project CARS 2

            One of the best car simulators on this street. It is valued for its realism (though not in everything), and is also included in the list of the most demanding games. Even the recommended requirements indicate quite affordable (with reservations in the current reality) video cards of the GTX 1080 or AMD Radeon RX480 level.

            The game gives the maximum, usually keeps its 60 fps (this is the limitation of the TV), but in some cases the figure dropped to 53. However, this did not affect the process in any way, because the head is busy slowing down in time before the next sharp turn. And this is the case when you don’t have to make compromises, trying to save every kilobyte of video memory — you can turn on the «improved mirror» without any problems.

            For peace of mind, we tried several other popular car simulators. The situation is similar: beautiful, smooth, lighting with glare is better than in reality on the street.

            Conclusions

            Any modern AAA class game can provide an almost complete load of resources even for the most top-end computer. Often these are not so much performance problems of components, but questions of optimizing the product itself. And systems with high-end graphics cards simply allow you to look at games differently: it’s like watching a large-scale blockbuster in a movie or on TV (in the first case, the entertainment is an order of magnitude higher). 4K monitors are not very common for the reasons described at the very beginning, and all the resolutions below will not be able to «stagger» the older models of the latest generation video cards.

            Review of the GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER video card: an increase in the class

            NVIDIA continues to update its line of GeForce GTX 16 graphics cards based on Turing architecture GPUs. A few weeks ago, the developer introduced the GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER, along with announcing the characteristics of the GeForce RTX 1650 SUPER. Official sales of the junior model have already begun, which has every chance to take a place in the basic gaming configurations. What is the new product with a declared price of $160 capable of? 96 to 1280 (+43%), texture units — from 56 to 80, but the number of ROPs has not changed — 32. The base frequency for the GPU is set at 1530 MHz, while the average acceleration value is 1725 MHz.

            GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER GeForce GTX 1660 GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER GeForce GTX 1650
            Crystal name TU116 TU116 TU116 TU117

            Memory (type, capacity) GDDR6 6 GB GDDR5 6 GB GDDR6 4 GB GDDR5 4 GB
            Memory bus 192 bit 192 bit 128 bit 128 bit
            Effective memory clock speed 14000 MHz 8000 MHz 12000 MHz 8000 MHz
            Memory bandwidth 336 GB/s 192 GB/s 192 GB/s 128 GB/s
            Power consumption, W 125 W 120 W 100 W 75 W

            The memory bus width remains the same — 128 bits. However, the GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER uses GDDR6 chips with an effective frequency of 12,000 MHz, instead of GDDR5 at 8000 MHz. Therefore, the actual bandwidth of the memory subsystem has increased one and a half times — from 128 GB / s to 192 GB/s. Well, quite good for this category of devices. The same memory bandwidth has, for example, the GeForce GTX 1060, which not so long ago belonged to good middle-class video cards. Although you don’t need to look far for examples, if you remember that the GeForce GTX 1660 has the same bandwidth of the memory subsystem.

            In terms of capacity, the GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER will only be offered in 4 GB versions. From a technical point of view, for sure the developers could offer options with 8 GB, but the marketing department would certainly be against it. Additional competition between product lines is not needed. And given that the GeForce GTX 1660/1660 SUPER have 6 GB on board, it is unlikely that junior adapters will be equipped with a large amount of memory, at least at the initial stage.

            The GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER supports the entire technological legacy of devices equipped with NVIDIA Turing GPUs. However, like all models of the GeForce GTX line, there are no RT blocks and tensor cores. Hardware acceleration of ray tracing and DLSS renderings is still only available on GeForce RTX. The absence of such modules can significantly reduce the size of the GPU, and hence the cost of its manufacture, which affects the overall price of the video card.

            Since the more powerful TU116 chip is used for the GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER, the power consumption of the video card has also increased slightly along with the processing power. The declared thermal package of the SUPER version is 100 W, instead of 75 V for the GeForce GTX 1650. Adapters of the new series will no longer be able to do without an additional power connector. A six-pin connector will be a mandatory attribute of new models. At the same time, the power requirements of the power supply have not actually changed. The manufacturer recommends using a 350W PSU.

            NVIDIA will not offer reference versions of the GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER, relying entirely on partners. Therefore, the composition of interface panels, the layout of printed circuit boards and the configuration of cooling systems — all this falls on the shoulders of video card manufacturers.

            Palit GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER StormX OC

            At the start, Palit offers two modifications of the StormX GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER line.

            The older model Palit GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER StormX OC with additional factory overclocking of the GPU came to our testing.

            Instead of the recommended 1530/1725 MHz formula, 1530/1770 MHz is used for the OS modification. The difference is small, but such an acceleration will certainly add a few additional fps.

            The video card is very compact. The dual-slot adapter is only 168mm long, easily fitting into the Mini-ITX format.

            Palit GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER StormX OC uses a simple cooling system. The basis of the radiator block is a solid aluminum profile with additional fins to increase the dispersion area. Heat pipes are not provided here. In general, a typical design for inexpensive and relatively economical devices. Let’s see how such a cooler will cope with the cooling of the TU116.

            The radiator block is ventilated with a 100mm axial fan. They have 9 blades with a relatively small profile width. The top of the cooler is covered with a decorative plastic cover.

            The printed circuit board differs from the one used by the manufacturer for the GTX 1650 and GTX 1660 models. The power stabilization subsystem has a 4-phase circuit (3 + 1), additional cooling is not provided for the power elements. Memory chips are also content with natural convection. In this case, Micron D9 microcircuits are used.WCW, which are specified to be ready to operate on the effective 14,000 MHz.

            One 6-pin connector is provided for auxiliary power. Given the TDP of the video card at 100 W, the possibilities of the PCI Express x16 slot (75 W) are indispensable here. A small factory overclock of the GPU will also require a few extra watts of power. In any case, the GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER remains very economical in its class, requiring only a 350W PSU.

            Palit GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER StormX OC does not have additional lighting. On the upper edge of the casing, you can only find a large GeForce GTX signature applied in white paint.

            The interface panel of the video card has three video outputs — DisplayPort, HDMI and DVI-D, which are arranged in one tier. Two-thirds of the panels are occupied by large ventilation holes for the removal of heated air.

            In progress

            The video card in question does not allow the cooler to work in passive mode even at minimal load. Moreover, the fan rotates at a speed clearly higher than that required by the conditions. Unfortunately, the video card does not allow monitoring the rotational speed, therefore there are no exact values ​​​​here. Unfortunately, even in manual mode, it cannot be reduced. The minimum threshold value — 35% — is not further reduced here. Without instrumental measurements using a tachometer, we can subjectively say that we are talking about 1500+ rpm values.

            The GPU temperature on the open stand (+20C) was kept at 28-30C.

            Under gaming load, the GPU warmed up to only 58 degrees. The fan speed in this case was further increased, as well as the level of noise emitted. The overall heating performance of the chip is very good, but the fan speed (57%), and, accordingly, the noise level should be reduced.

            According to the data obtained with the UNI-T UT353 sound level meter, located half a meter from the video card, the noise level is 42.5 dBA at rest, and up to 46.5 dBA under load. Perhaps Palit made sure for situations with compact gaming platforms that have little ventilation inside the case. In this case, it will be justified, but such an option is unlikely to suit lovers of silence.

            In extreme cases, it is possible to fix the rotation speed by 35% using the Palit Thunder Master proprietary utility, for example, for GPU temperatures up to 70C with a further increase. But, of course, it is better for the manufacturer to configure the cooling system profile in the video card firmware.

            During the passage of the game stages, the operating frequency of the GPU increased up to 2010 MHz. A solid GPU boost, even if we take into account that in games it was often possible to observe values ​​of 1930-1980 MHz.

            Performance

            To evaluate the performance of the new video card, we used the classic GeForce GTX 1650 4 GB model, and the difference in the capabilities of video cards of the same class from two different generations will be shown by comparison with the GeForce GTX 1050. At the same time, we used the basic version with only 2 GB of memory on board. In the position of older models, the GeForce GTX 1660 6 GB and the accelerated modification of the GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER 6 GB with GDDR6 memory are used. In this case, we get an almost complete cut of NVIDIA’s entry-level solutions.

            The 3DMark Time Spy test allows you to designate the starting position of all test participants. As you can see, the GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER has a very significant advantage over the base model. The distance with the GeForce GTX 1660 remains, but it is already quite small.

            For gaming tests, we used a mode with a resolution of 1920×1080 and maximum graphics quality. Such settings in especially heavy projects remain an unbearable burden for entry-level video cards.

            With these settings, the results of the GeForce GTX 1050 2 GB looked especially sad. An acute lack of local memory and already modest GPU performance by today’s standards limit the gaming capabilities of such solutions. However, it is unlikely that the owner of such a video card will use the mode with the maximum quality settings.

            GeForce GTX 1650 significantly improves the situation here, but in general its performance is still insufficient for such modes. The base model TU117 turned out to be very energy efficient and, in general, is a good replacement for the predecessor of the previous generation, but the main competitor from the AMD camp, the Radeon RX 570, is noticeably inferior in performance, and costs not much cheaper. Therefore, additional reinforcement was clearly suggested here. In addition, AMD announced the Radeon RX 5500, although the official cost of this model has not yet been advertised.

            According to the test results, the GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER turned out to be 28-43% more productive than the GeForce GTX 1650. On average, the performance increase is ~ 37%. A significant increase in the number of active GPU functional units and an increase in memory bandwidth provide an excellent result.

            The GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER is only 10-12% behind the GeForce GTX 1660 6 GB on average. This means that the new product will often be somewhat more productive than the GeForce GTX 1060 6 GB and the Radeon RX 570/580. Surely the actual figures will depend on the specific project, but in general the situation will be something like this. Well, it’s quite good, as for a video card with a declared price of $160.

            Judging by the first test results of the Radeon RX 5500 4 GB, AMD’s new performance is close to that of the Radeon RX 580. At the same time, the RNDA solution is much more economical than the previous model. Theoretically, it should be significantly cheaper, but the developers have already thoroughly delayed the announcement of the price. Perhaps it will be easier for them to decide after the announcement of the price of the GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER. Considering that the models have a similar level of performance with a slight edge from NVIDIA’s solution, let’s assume that the price tag for the Radeon RX 5500 should be even more attractive.

            We also tested the performance of the video cards when using game profiles with medium graphics quality settings . Under such conditions, the GeForce GTX 1050 2 GB comes to life, although this mode is often not available to it in heavy resource-intensive projects. Just two years ago, this model was the standard option for the base gaming system. Moreover, a year ago, she was forced to replace the starting GeForce GTX 1050 Ti at that time. However, the time for these decisions is over.

            Curiously, the slightly accelerated version of the GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER noticeably reduces the gap from the GeForce GTX 1660 in such conditions. In some projects, the difference is vanishingly small, in others it does not exceed 5%.

            Power Consumption

            Using the faster GPU TU116 instead of the TU117 obviously affected the power consumption of the GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER. In this regard, the novelty tends to be closer to the GeForce GTX 1660.

            However, these are still very low values ​​for devices of this class. Despite the 12nm manufacturing process, NVIDIA’s GPUs are very good in terms of energy efficiency. Especially versions of Turing-based processors without specialized RT blocks and tensor cores, which significantly increase the number of transistors and the area of ​​\u200b\u200bthe silicon crystal.

            Looking at the final diagram, it is worth considering that here are the overall results of the power consumption of the entire platform. Therefore, when using a faster video card, the central processor will also make a greater contribution.

            Overclocking

            In express mode, we also tried to further overclock the Palit GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER StormX OC. In this case, the Power Limit parameter was limited to 100%.

            Despite this, we managed to increase the base frequency of the chip from 1530 to 1675 MHz (+9,5 %). At the same time, the average acceleration value increased from 1770 MHz to 1915 MHz. The effective frequency of GDDR6 memory chips has also been increased from 12,000 MHz to 15,000 MHz (1875 MHz).

            After additional overclocking, the frequency of the GPU at the peak «shot» up to 2145 MHz, however, the actual values ​​under gaming load were on average 70-100 MHz lower. It is likely that power consumption limitations are already having an effect here.

            The cooling system used can cope with the increased load. Moreover, in the conditions of an open bench, the temperature of the GPU under load increased by only one degree — up to 58C. The fan speed has also increased slightly — up to 60% of the maximum.

            At the same time, there is no additional cooling on the memory chips, and the temperature of the GDDR6 chips in this case is not monitored by service utilities.

            Additional overclocking brings a noticeable performance boost. In some cases, the accelerated GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER even manages to get ahead of the GTX 1660, but more often than not, the forced adapter manages to get closer to the performance of the older model. However, this is also a very worthy result.

            Price

            As we mentioned, the recommended price of the GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER for the US market is $160. Retail price announced for Ukraine is 4590 UAH (~$190). Surely at the start of sales, prices will be noticeably higher. In addition, it should be borne in mind that this is the level of basic models, and tuned versions with factory overclocking will cost more.

            ITC.UA score

            Pros:
            35-40% faster performance than GeForce GTX 1650; price/performance ratio; GDDR6 memory; compact dimensions; noticeable factory overclocking of the GPU; the possibility of additional acceleration of the GPU and memory; low GPU temperatures under load

            Cons:
            For GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER — no 8 GB versions available; for the Palit video card — the noise level of the cooling system; there is no way to monitor the fan speed; the minimum value of the rotation speed is 35%; no heatsinks on VRM and memory chips

            Output:
            Well, NVIDIA is very well prepared for the Radeon RX 5500 meeting. In addition, with the release of the GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER, it will be clearly more difficult for AMD to get rid of the remnants of its previous generation hits — the Radeon RX 570/580. Reinforced model of Californians with a very attractive price will be a great option for the base gaming platform. The components of success here lie on the surface. All the technological chips of the Turing graphics architecture, the performance is almost the level of the GeForce GTX 1660 at a price slightly higher than that of the GeFoce GTX 1650. One can only regret that the GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER will not be offered in versions with 8 GB of memory. By today’s standards, 4 GB is the obvious minimum for gaming in Full HD, even at medium-high graphics quality settings. For such conditions, the GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER is ready very well. In the initial class, NVIDIA’s boost was clearly in order, because such modes were not always easy for the classic GeForce GTX 1650, and competitors of similar cost offered greater performance.
