The best graphics card

As the GPU is the beating silicon heart of your gaming PC we’ve benchmarked the latest AMD and Nvidia graphics cards to find today's greatest. Whether you want a cheap 1080p workhorse or to go all in for 4K, we’ve got you covered.

Nvidia GTX 1660 Ti

Built upon Nvidia’s Turing architecture, the GTX 1660 Ti represents the very best in affordable performance today.

After nixing some of the RTX 20-series’ features, Nvidia is finally able to challenge AMD’s price/performance in the mainstream market with the GTX 1660 Ti. You can now pick up GTX 1070 performance for under $300.

Nvidia GTX 1660

The GTX 1660 has been specced and priced to take out the AMD Polaris competition.

With greater performance and a lower cost than the RX 590, the GTX 1660 has put enormous pressure on AMD to keep stock of RX 580s at a low price.

AMD RX 580 8GB

AMD's finest is cheaper than ever after the RX 590's release, and a great budget alternative to the 16-series cards.

The price of the RX 580 is fantastic considering its serious gaming performance. But the GTX 1660 is faster and just about justifies the extra expense. If you can’t stretch beyond the $200 mark then the RX 580 won’t disappoint.

NVIDIA RTX 2060

Nvidia's RTX 2060 might be the best value RTX card yet, offering GTX 1070 Ti performance and real-time ray tracing chops.

Utilising a slightly cut-down TU106 GPU, the RTX 2060 easily outpaces the GTX 1070 across our gaming benchmarking suite. So much so, in fact, it matches even the GTX 1070 Ti in regular ol’ rendering.

NVIDIA RTX 2080 Ti

The pinnacle of 4K, 60fps gaming... even if it will cost you an arm and a leg. And a couple of kidneys too.

The RTX 2080 Ti is the true next-gen graphics card of the Turing GPU generation. This graphics processing powerhouse is the standard bearer for 4K gaming and real-time ray tracing.

NVIDIA RTX 2080

The promise of real-time ray tracing makes the RTX 2080 a genuinely intriguing prospect and the best 4K graphics card.

The RTX 2080 is the most realistic card to pick for real-time ray tracing - the RTX 2070 struggles, and the RTX 2080 Ti is awfully expensive. And it delivers a tangible performance uplift over the GTX 1080.

AMD RX 570

This great-value little GPU is back to being a price/performance hero again, retiring the 1050 Ti.

Being cheaper than the Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti, it’s actually a ridiculous price… in a good way. Its 4GB of VRAM isn’t much, but it’s absolutely fine if you’re rocking a 1080p monitor.
