GPU comparison chart in XL Gaming Performance GPU Comparison.pdf?dl=0

Hello everyone!

I am thinking about my next build and wanted to put together a graphical representation of how the GPUs compare with one another. I have created an XLsheet with all of the info from a few sources. Can you please have a look at it and tell me what you think? Your feedback would be awesome! I am trying to get a general idea of how the cards compare... it is a soft analysis. The cards align with each other per row not exactly, but within an acceptable comparable range. Also, it is only for gaming, not for benchmarking. And the comparisons are 'soft' margined, since some cards are better in some games than others, and builds can affect their performance too. What do you think about the layout? How about the Intel graphics? I am good with Nvidia, all my builds are Nvidia, so i am trying to get an idea about AMD and Intel for my next builds.

Actually in line with prior articles.

The thing is that while you got the tiers right, why bother with old cards that are no longer in production? I mean my bottom line for the GPU in gaming is the 1050 Ti. This is seen at and Tom's Hardware.

Now if you are gaming at 1080p you can do well on just a paltry 1050 Ti. Want 144Hz, move to the 1060. Want some 1440p and 144Hz, the 1070. Want the UHD 4K experience? The 1080's. Want dual UHD's? More than the 1080.

It's pretty simple when you come right down to it.

thanks for the answer, wanted to go in deeper


Thanks for the response. Yeah, as of now I have a 1070 and i still feel that i need that power to max out games like Deus Ex, even just on 1080p and on 60hz. Game still drops down to 40s in heavy fights outside in rain etc. I am getting CreedOrigin soon too and seems like a heavy game.

But the sheet is fun! i have never seen on like it, so its fun to get a general view, to get it kind set in stone. What do you think?

That's simple.

Is that the scene is complex but still OK for most gamers. If this is unacceptable you reduce settings or invest in a more powerful GPU.

The problem is that games today can exceed what we can buy for GPUs today. The reason is simple and it's that developing a game is expensive so you must exceed the hardware there is today but provide controls to cut back so that in the future when more power is available the game still looks fresh.

Some folk don't get this.
