Never jump into a pond without knowing its depths.

Similarly to know what is the best Graphic card which is pocket friendly, you need to know some terms here.

What on earth is a Graphic Card?

It’s the piece of computer hardware which produces the image you see on your monitor. The Graphics Card is responsible for rendering an image to your monitor, in simple terms, the better your graphics card the better and smoother an image can be produced. This is naturally very important for gamers and video editors.

What are the types of Graphic Cards?

Integrated: Graphics built into the motherboard where no add-in card is used. You’ll find these built into most ‘standard’ laptops and desktop PCs. They’re a cost-effective model but because they are ‘fixed’ they cannot be upgraded (you’ll be fooled if you pay money for this upgrade).

Example :- Intel iris , Amd Vega 11 etc.

Discrete: An add-in graphics card that is installed on to the motherboard as an extra component. This type is ideal for those wanting to modify their system by upgrading the graphics card at a later date.

Example :- Nvidia GTX, RTX and AMD Radeon.

If any human brain is completely functional, they’ll always choose the Discrete GPU for their PC or if they are goin for a laptop, they’ll go for a gaming laptop (not only for gaming, but for carrying out all the other tasks)

What is GPU ?

GPU stands for Graphics Processing Unit. It’s the ‘brain’ of the graphics card and it’s what creates the visuals you see on the screen. How powerful a GPU is will vary on the model you select. In effect, the GPU works as a translator.

What are EXPANSION SLOTS ?

You can expand your PC by adding additional cards internally. In the years graphics expansion slots have changed significantly from PCI (Peripheral Component Interconnect), AGP (Accelerated Graphics Port) to the PCI-e (Gen1/2/3) (PCI-express) which offer the best bandwidth.

Some motherboards have expansion slots allowing users to add more than one graphics card. This is called SLI (NVIDIA) or Crossfire (AMD), allowing users to get improved performance from their system. The intention is to link two of the same graphics cards together.

Classification :- Top 10 (From costliest to Cheapest)

We have made a list of graphic cards from the costliest to the budget ones with their clock speed and bench mark too.. They are worth for that price.

10. Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti

Boost Clock: 1635MHz | Memory: 11GB GDDR6 | CUDA Cores: 4352 | Memory Bandwidth: 616GB/s

+Fastest graphics card around

+Ray tracing and deep learning tech

– Extremely expensive

– Few games have ray-tracing

9. Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Super

Boost Clock: 1815MHz | Memory: 8GB GDDR6 | CUDA Cores: 3072 | Memory Bandwidth: 496GB/s

+Slightly faster than the RTX 2080

+Ray tracing and deep learning tech

– Still expensive

– Few games have ray-tracing

8. Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080

Boost Clock: 1710MHz | Memory: 8GB GDDR6 | CUDA Cores: 2944 | Memory Bandwidth: 448GB/s

+One of the fastest GPUs currently available for gaming

+Ray tracing and deep learning tech

– Replaced by RTX 2080 Super,

– usually not a good value compared to Super cards

– Few ray-tracing games available

7. Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 Super

Boost Clock: 1770MHz | Memory: 8GB GDDR6 | CUDA Cores: 2560 | Memory Bandwidth: 448GB/s

+The best high-end GPU for most people

+Ray tracing and deep learning tech

– Still expensive

– Few games have ray-tracing

6. Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060

Boost Clock: 1680MHz | Memory: 6GB GDDR6 | CUDA Cores: 1920 | Memory Bandwidth: 336GB/s

+Good performance at 1080p and 1440p

+Cheapest ray tracing graphics card

– Questionable ray tracing performance

– Few RT/DLSS games

5. Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti

Boost Clock: 1770MHz | Memory: 6GB GDDR5 | CUDA Cores: 1536 | Memory Bandwidth: 288GB/s

+Good performance at 1080p

+Nvidia Turing architecture

– No ray tracing or DLSS

– Generational price increase

4. Nvidia GTX 1660 Super

Boost Clock: 1785MHz | Memory: 6GB GDDR5 | CUDA Cores: 1408 | Memory Bandwidth: 336GB/s

+ Very good 1080p performance

+ Cheaper than the 1660 Ti

+Very little difference between 1660s

– Missing RTX features

3. Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650

Boost Clock: 1665MHz | Memory: 4GB GDDR6 | CUDA Cores: 896 | Memory Bandwidth: 128GB/s

+ Good enough for esports/lightweight games at 1080p, like Fortnite, Overwatch, and CS:GO

+ Most models don’t require 6-pin PEG power

– Struggles with more demanding AAA games, like modern open-world titles and some shooters

– 4GB of VRAM is the minimum requirement for most new games

2. Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 6GB

Boost Clock: 1708MHz | Memory: 6GB GDDR5 | CUDA Cores: 1280 | Memory Bandwidth: 192GB/s

+A decent card for 1080p gaming

– Replaced by the RTX 2060 and RTX 2060 Super

– Uses Nvidia’s last-gen architecture

1. Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050

Boost Clock: 1455MHz | Memory: 2GB GDDR5 | CUDA Cores: 640 | Memory Bandwidth: 112GB/s

+ Doesn’t require 6-pin PEG power connection

+ Can still play lightweight games

– RX 560 4GB is same or lower price

– 2GB is very restricting

– Struggles in latest games

Conclusion

The Nvidia 1050 is the best entry level graphic card with low price. Also the 1060 is another bang for buck option. If you are using Intel i5 or Ryzen 3 these two processors can be best options for you. But if you want to use the higher graphic cards like 1660 Super and RTX series, then you need to use processors like Ryzen 7 and Intel i7 or i9.

Well that’s some attractive features for now. Will be posting some more tech and gaming news again.. Until then

Stay Tuned
