2022 GPU benchmark comparison list

Best eSports graphics card – PNY GeForce GTX 1660 Ti XLR8

SPECIFICATIONS

Stream Processors: 1,536Core Clock: 1,500MHzMemory: 6GB GDDR6Memory Speed: 12GbpsPower Connectors: 1 x 8-pinOutputs: 1 x DisplayPort 1.4, 1 x HDMI 2.0, 1 x DVI

Pros

+Excellent 1080p performance

+Affordable

Cons

-Limited memory bandwidth

When Nvidia first revealed its Turing lineup, it was hard to find a model that didn’t cost an arm and a leg. Nonetheless, with the launch of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti – especially the PNY XLR8 Gaming OC model – next-generation performance became accessible to everyone. You won’t have access to 4K 60 fps gaming with this card, but it’s one of the best graphics cards for anyone still using a 1080p display, and it can handle most esports games well above 60fps. At that resolution, you’ll have trouble running into any title that it can’t handle.

Best GPU card for gaming – Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti

SPECIFICATIONS

Stream Processors: 4,864Core Clock: 1.41 GHz (1.67 GHz boost)Memory: 8 GB GDDR6Memory Clock: 14GbpsOutputs: HDMI 2.1, 3x DisplayPort 1.4aPower Connectors: 1x PCIe 8-pin (adapter to 1x 12-pin included)

Pros

+Excellent 1080p performance+Ray tracing performance is solid

Cons

-Only entry-level 4K performance

Is AMD no longer the king of great value GPUs? The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti certainly threatens that claim with its price to performance ratio. The newest arrival in the RTX 3000 line, this graphics card punches way above its weight class, delivering a performance that could rival that of the RTX 2080 Super while keeping its price tag incredibly affordable for most people. And, that’s with impressive ray tracing included. 1080p gaming has never been this good and this affordable.

Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti

SPECIFICATIONS

Stream Processors: 10,240Core Clock: 1.37 GHz (1.67 GHz boost)Memory: 12 GB GDDR6XMemory Clock: 14GbpsOutputs: HDMI, 3x DisplayPortPower Connectors: 2x PCIe 8-pin

REASONS TO BUY

+Excellent performance+Beautiful graphics card+Same size as RTX 3080

REASONS TO AVOID

-Very expensive-Power-hungry

 There’s a new Nvidia champion in town, and it takes power and performance to an even more accessible price point. Delivering RTX 3090-level performance, an impressive feat in its own right, the long-awaited RTX 3080 Ti comes with an even better price tag, making all that sheer power more accessible than ever. It continues what the RTX 3080 has started – to take 4K gaming into the mainstream arena – with its breathtaking 4K at 60fps performance while slashing a few hundred dollars off the steep 3090 price. This is the best graphics card on the market right now, especially if you care about ray tracing. 

Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 – top in GPU benchmark comparison list

SPECIFICATIONS

Stream Processors: 8,704Core Clock: 1.44 GHz (1,71 GHz boost)Memory: 10 GB GDDR6XMemory Clock: 19GbpsPower Connectors: 2x PCIe 8-pinOutputs: HDMI 2.1, 3x DisplayPort 1.4a

REASONS TO BUY

+Excellent 4K gaming performance+Low temperatures

REASONS TO AVOID

-Still kind of expensive

With the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080, 4K gaming just became a lot more accessible. Before, you had to shell out more than $1,000/£1,000 to get playable framerates with the RTX 2080 Ti. However, with the next generation of Nvidia graphics cards, the price of 4K gaming has been cut nearly in half, thanks to the RTX 3080. It boasts one of the largest generational leaps in GPU history, delivering a 50-80% performance boost over the RTX 2080 and a 20-30% boost over the RTX 2080 Ti, all while keeping the same price point as the RTX 2080. This is both an absolute powerhouse of a graphics card and a great value, if you have a bit of extra cash lying around. 

Best GPU card for creatives – Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090

SPECIFICATIONS

Stream Processors: 10,496Core Clock: 1.40 GHz (1,70 GHz boost)Memory: 24 GB GDDR6XMemory Clock: 19.5GbpsPower Connectors: 2x PCIe 8-pinOutputs: HDMI 2.1, 3x DisplayPort 1.4a

Pros

+GPU performance to beat

+Up to 8k performance

Cons

-Extremely expensive-Very large

You can’t beat the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 when it comes to performance. With a whopping 24GB of RAM, no game or, more importantly, heavy graphics project will suffer performance issues. In fact, you can even get some 8K performance at 60 fps out of the 3090. It is an incredibly expensive unit, and quite large too, so it will probably be too much GPU for most users. The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 is, in essence, a replacement for the Titan so it’s meant more for the creative user tackling intensive 3D and video rendering than for the avid gamer. Even so, it comes with a massive reduction in price compared to the Titan, even if it’s still out of most people’s budget.

AMD GPU benchmark comparison list

AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT – popular in AMD GPU benchmark comparison list

SPECIFICATIONS

Stream processors: 2,048Core clock: 1,968Memory: 8GB GDDR6Memory clock: 16GbpsPower connectors: 1 x 8-pinOutputs: 1.4 with DSC DisplayPort, HDMI 2.1 VRR and FRL

REASONS TO BUY

+Strong 1080p performance+Great thermal efficiency+Low power consumption

REASONS TO AVOID

-Should be cheaper-Only slightly better than the RTX 3060

For rock solid 1080p gaming, you can’t go wrong with the AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT. Not only is the card a great performer, but it doesn’t use a lot of power so you can install it in a system with a smaller PSU. Because of its great thermal efficiency, you also don’t need a super expensive water cooling system built into your PC. Unfortunately, it is a bit pricier than the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060, its direct competition, and doesn’t come with ray tracing.

AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT

Another high-end swing from AMD

SPECIFICATIONS

Stream Processors: 2,560Core Clock: 2.32 GHz (2.58 GHz boost)Memory: 12GB GDDR6Memory Clock: 16 GbpsPower Connectors: 8 pin + 6 pinOutputs: HDMI 2.1, DisplayPort 1.4 with DSC

REASONS TO BUY

+Excellent 1440p performance+Ray tracing+Lightweight card with no sag

REASONS TO AVOID

-Ray tracing performance is weak-No FidelityFX Super Resolution

Those comfortable messing with your BIOS and looking for a 1440p graphics card that’s slightly more accessible, price-wise, will appreciate AMD’s latest high-end offering. This Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti rival delivers a solid 1440p performance with ray tracing to boot. It comes at the right time as well, with 1440p gaming monitors’ growing popularity. Its price is a bit closer to the more powerful RTX 3070, but if you’re an AMD fan, it’s still an excellent contender.

MSI RTX 3090 Gaming X Trio

For when you need the very best

SPECIFICATIONS

Stream processors: 2,176Core clock: 1,650Memory: 24GB GDDR6XMemory clock: 19.5GbpsPower connectors: 3 x 8-pinOutputs: DisplayPort 1.4a x3, HDMI 2.1

REASONS TO BUY

+Incredibly powerful+Stylish RGB

REASONS TO AVOID

– So expensive

If you’re after the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090, you’re going to want one with a cooler that’s more than powerful enough to handle the full brunt of the power on offer. The MSI GeForce RTX 3090 Gaming X Trio has the cooling power not only to handle this GPU at its stock settings, but has enough oomph to overclock it to make it even more powerful. For a GPU that already laughs in the face of all PC games at 4K, this extra power is just icing on the cake. 

AMD Radeon RX 6800

AMD’s return to the high-end graphics card market

SPECIFICATIONS

Stream Processors: 3,840Core Clock: 1.82 GHz (2.10 GHz boost)Memory: 16GB GDDR6Memory Clock: 16GbpsPower Connectors: 2 x 8 pinOutputs: DisplayPort 1.4 with DSC, HDMI 2.1 VRR and FRL

REASONS TO BUY

+Excellent performance+Finally, AMD ray tracing

REASONS TO AVOID

-Divisive design

If you think AMD is still stuck in the budget and mid-range markets, think again. The AMD Radeon RX 6800 marks AMD’s return to the high-end graphics card market, and it’s a premium ace without the incredibly premium price. This GPU delivers a solid 4K gaming performance and impressive ray tracing at 1440p, while being a better value than its direct rival, the RTX 3070, thanks to its VRAM. Plus, AMD’s Smart Access Memory technology will make it even faster.
