Today we're going to review the sub-$200 graphics card market and see how it compares to what we were offered just a few years ago. We recently did this for the $400 price range and it was super interesting. The two most recent additions to this segment are the Radeon 5500 XT and Nvidia's GTX 1650 Super. Let's see how they do against previous generations.
AMD just launched a new optional Radeon Adrenalin 2020 graphics driver with improved performance for Monster Hunter World: Iceborne. The 20.1.1 hotfix also solves several bugs in Radeon ReLive. Check out the complete release notes and download links.
Inside the latest graphics cards 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.
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?
As promised in our day-one Radeon RX 5500 XT review, today we're taking a look at the 4GB version to see how it performs and more importantly how it compares to not only 8GB models, but also other graphics cards that compete in the same price range like the RX 580.
The Radeon RX 5500 XT is AMD's answer to Nvidia's recently released GeForce GTX 1650 Super. Codenamed Navi 14, we finally have the new budget-oriented Radeon on hand and to evaluate just how good the Radeon RX 5500 XT is, we have cards from MSI and Gigabyte to put to the test.
Something we've been hearing a lot this year is that there's a lack of development and progress on the PC gaming/hardware front. In an effort to determine if that's true, we'll test 2016's prime $400 GPU, the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 against 2019's $400 GPU players, the RTX 2060 Super and RX 5700 XT and compare them in 37 games at 1080p and 1440p.
Launched on PC a year after it debuted on consoles, Red Dead Redemption 2 is still a big release that deserves a detailed benchmark analysis, much like what we've done for other titles this year like Borderlands 3 where we compared over 60 GPUs, Metro Exodus, and most recently Fornite Chapter 2. Unfortunately those plans went out the window when we discovered how hard benchmarking this game was going to be.
We've got yet another big game benchmark for you, this time comparing the GeForce RTX 2060 Super to the Radeon RX 5700 XT. This is an apples to apples comparison of the two top $400 GPUs in the market for these holidays and beyond.
Today we're revisiting graphics card performance in Fortnite. With the new Chapter 2 Season 1 update the game's visuals have been improved and since we do include Fornite in our big benchmark features, we thought a large scale benchmark update would be in order.
Today we've got a massive 41 game benchmark comparing the GeForce RTX 2060 Super and Radeon RX 5700 head to head. This big comparison includes new titles such as Borderlands 3, Gears 5 and Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint. All the results are brand new and were gathered during the last week using the latest display drivers as well as the latest game versions.
In addition to our launch day reviews of the Radeon RX 5700 and 5700 XT, we followed up with extended comparisons, overclocking, and more. Most recently enthusiasts have gone further though, by tinkering and flashing vanilla RX 5700 cards with 5700 XT BIOS, making them instantly faster at no extra expense. Sounds like a really good deal.
