We nearly lost count of how many graphics cards we put down for this test, but let's say it was roughly sixty GPUs from both camps to check out Borderlands 3 performance. We've tested this new game at 1080p, 1440p and 4K, then re-tested with a group of budget and older GPUs at 1080p with medium quality settings for good measure.
This is a straightforward comparison pitting the previous generation GeForce flagship, the GTX 1080 Ti head to head against the RTX 2070 Super and RX 5700 XT in 39 games. We'll learn how the GTX 1080 Ti stacks up versus these new "mid-range" GPUs and if you should buy one, something that will be answered before this article is over.
Nvidia's latest major driver update brought with it several new features including performance enhancements, GPU integer scaling for retro games, a new ultra-low latency mode and perhaps the biggest addition: a new Freestyle Sharpening Filter to rival Radeon's RIS. Is Nvidia's new Freestyle better, and does it make DLSS completely obsolete?
If you're looking to buy a new graphics card today, don't mind all the testing, marginal FPS gains, power consumption figures, or overclocking potential. TechSpot's Best Graphics Cards is written to get a simple question answered: Given a certain budget, which is the graphics card you should buy?
You've followed the rumors and ignored the hype; you waited for the reviews and finally slapped down your dollars and walked away with one of the latest graphics cards from AMD or Nvidia. Inside these, lies a large graphics processor, packed with billions of transistors, all running at clock speeds unthinkable a decade ago. Welcome to our architectural comparison of the newest GPUs from AMD and Nvidia.
We have the final piece in Nvidia's Super puzzle. Coming in at the same $700 price point, the new GeForce RTX 2080 Super offers some performance increases, though we suspect nothing too dramatic considering that Nvidia doesn't need to cannibalize sales of the 2080 Ti, nor does it have any direct competition at this price point.

The long time coming GeForce RTX Super graphics cards are here: the RTX 2060 Super is a slightly cut down version of the original RTX 2070 (but now at $400) as both use TU106 silicon. Meanwhile, the RTX 2070 Super is a boosted version of the original for the same price, reaching closer to 2080-levels of performance.
Today we're going to compare the most affordable RTX 2060 graphics card you can buy right now to one of the most expensive models from MSI. Prospective buyers often ask this and particular details aside, you could extrapolate this comparison to other GPU series as well.
