Time for An Upgrade – Best Graphics Cards in 2020
PC gamers know very well that the heart and soul of any gaming configuration is the graphic card. In fact, the graphic card is often more expensive than the rest of the equipment combined. When buying a new graphic card, we are often prepared for a big expense, but we want to make sure that the card we get will be viable for years to come. This is why we take our time before picking the product, weighing the pros and cons, adjusting our budget, etc.
To that end, here are some of the top competitors in the graphic card department for the year 2020.
Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080
For those who spare no expense, and want the best possible gaming option that is currently on the market Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080, outclasses all other competitors. This is a significant leap in terms of performance compared to the RTX 20-series and you can count on this card to be viable for years to come. Nvidia added a lot more CUDA cores now which allows RTX 3080 to have incredible ray tracing performance. That being said this card needs more power to operate, so make sure you have 850W PSU at a minimum if you wish for it to work properly.
AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT
Those who are looking for a budget-friendly option that is worth every penny, look no further than AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT. This is the top-notch 1080p graphics card, and it is exactly what AMD set out to make.
The card does not require too much power to run, has a high frame rate, and multiple software features. You are unlikely to find anything better within the $300 price range.
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Super
If we were to talk about value in general, or what is the best card you can buy at the cheapest price then Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 Super is most likely the winner in that category. It is less than $200 and delivers quite an impressive 1080p frame rate, so you can count to be pleasantly surprised with this purchase.
AMD Radeon RX 5700
When it comes to PC gaming, this is probably the card that most of the users will opt for. It is an absolute beast perfectly capable of bringing 1440p games at both Ultra and Max settings.
The best thing about this card is the price because it is way more affordable, and accessible compared to Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080. The only major difference and the reason why there is such a huge price gap is ray tracing. AMD Radeon RX 5700 does not have ray tracing, but with how graphics are incredible nowadays, I am sure users won’t feel like they are missing out on much.
