Amd vs nvidia
AMD and Nvidia are the biggest names in the game field, that is, PC games, but this does not mean that they have nothing to do with game consoles. In this article, we will cover everything you need to know about these tech giants and who is the first.
AMD vs. Nvidia, which side are you on? Without further ado, let us find out who made the best graphics card.
AMD or Advanced Micro Devices is the second largest brand in the field of personal computing. As Intel’s only competitors in the CPU market, both are constantly pushing the limits of x86 and x64 processors in the entire industry. The recently launched Ryzen has brought AMD back into the competition. This is a battle that has lasted for decades, and it looks as fierce as ever.
So where did the graphics come from? So this is where Radeon appears.
Radeon was originally an ATI brand, not an AMD brand. From the 1990s to the mid-2000s, ATI or Array Technology Inc. was Nvidia's main competitor in the field of PC graphics, so Nvidia initially faced Nvidia. Give you. In 2006, AMD acquired the ATI and Radeon brands. The new brand of AMD Radeon becomes a competitor to Nvidia GeForce, making AMD the smallest competitor in the CPU and GPU market.
Radeon GPU is a consumer gaming graphics card. In recent years, they have been labeled R3, R5, R9, and RX variants.
Nvidia became one of many competitors in the field of PC graphics in the 1990s, on par with 3DFX and ATI. Although the GPU war in the 1990s was an interesting period, it led to many acquisitions and bankruptcies until only two competitors remained: Nvidia and ATI.
Obviously we know what happened to ATI, but since then Nvidia has been steadily climbing the market. By transitioning to the PS3 / 360 era, they gained market dominance over ATI before AMD acquired them.
However, in addition to PC graphics, NVIDIA is also well known in other markets, especially in autonomous vehicles and artificial intelligence. Although both companies are interested in the mobile and gaming console markets, Nvidia has become more adventurous in its non-graphics area, possibly due to its position in the market.
GeForce is just the brand that Nvidia uses for its graphics cards. Unlike AMD, there is no true story behind the brand here. The
GeForce GPU is labeled GT, GTX, and RTX.
Since the merger of ATI and AMD, Nvidia and AMD have been the only independent GPU manufacturers in the PC gaming market. Just as AMD is with Intel in the CPU market, they represent a much smaller share of the overall market and are generally viewed as weak.
No question: AMD's money is definitely much less than Nvidia's. Nvidia's pool account enables more frequent creation of new GPU architectures and diversification in areas such as autonomous vehicles and artificial intelligence. With the debut of SHIELD hardware, Nvidia has even made significant progress in mobile technology that AMD has yet to reflect.
Gamingwise, both companies played a major role in the game console war. Both the Xbox 360 and the Nintendo Wii are equipped with ATI (AMD) GPUs, while the PlayStation 3 is made with improved Nvidia GPUs. In the current generation of gaming consoles, AMD made custom APU / SoC for PS4 and Xbox One, while Nvidia tweaked its SHIELD technology for use on Nintendo Switch.
From an overall and economic perspective, Nvidia is likely to be the winner. However, AMD is unlikely to get anywhere anytime soon. If you look at their actual GPU products, the competitiveness of the two is much stronger than you think. With frequent price and performance battles between multiple generations, it can almost be assumed that while Nvidia will always dominate the highest level of performance, AMD will wage a fierce battle between budget and mid-range.
Before we compare hardware, let's take a moment to talk about synchronization technology and software products.
Basically, these two technologies try to do the same thing: remove screen tearing from the equation, ensure a consistent frame rate, and provide an overall smoother gaming experience. They do this through a technology called "AdaptiveSync," which dynamically adjusts the refresh rate of the screen to match the current frame rate it is playing. This makes the lower frame rate smoother in the game and helps to alleviate the screen tearing that usually accompanies the higher frame rate without the input delay caused by VSync.
In general, both work well, but Nvidia's implementation is more expensive because it requires dedicated hardware inside the display to run. In contrast, FreeSync only needs an updated DisplayPort port and a compatible AMD GPU to operate normally.
In terms of general software products, Nvidia once had a significant advantage in this regard. Today, if there are Nvidia features like Share/Shadowplay, then AMD is already paired. There are still some games that provide specific optimizations and graphics effects for one of the two manufacturers. Nonetheless, these have become less and less over time due to negative reception and perceived anti-competitive behavior.
We will allow these two GPU manufacturers to compete with each other in five key price ranges. In addition to performance, we also consider value, so if it comes at the cost of serious value, the original graphics capabilities are not guaranteed to win in every category.
At the enthusiast level, we selected the three best GPUs on the market and compared them with each other.
AMD has yet to compete in the enthusiast arena, but its RX 6000 series "Big NAVI" card will be released soon, and the legendary RTX 3090 will have a competitor.
Nvidia's latest flagship GPU, in many ways one of the best all-round graphics cards we've seen, outperforms the previous generation of Nvidia graphics cards, of course, AMD is the same too. Use RTX 3090
A 12-pin connector consumes 350 watts of power. Finally, to take advantage of the power of this card, you have to pair it with the fastest gaming processor on the market. This is not a cheap card, oh no, at this price you will get twice the video memory as the RTX 3080, much less faster. The card also has over 20% CUDA, Tensor, and RT cores, and we see support for NVLink as well.
Thanks to this expandable VRAM, RTX 3090 now has more computing power and improved ability to render complex 3D scenes. Also, 24GB of memory is required to support 8K games.
In terms of raw performance, the RTX 2080 Ti easily outperforms many other graphics cards on this list and is not far behind the RTX Titan GPU. Compared to the 1080 Ti, the results show a performance increase of more than 30%. Compared to Radeon VII, performance improves by approximately 50%. The price difference between
RTX 2080 Ti and RTX Titan is thousands of dollars, and the performance difference is only 10%. This is not worth it for any imagination, especially if you are just a gamer. The
is below the ridiculous performance level of the RTX 3090, and the war has subsided. The RTX 3080 is unparalleled at this price. Now, unfortunately, the actual performance is not as groundbreaking as the advertisements lead us to believe, but this is one of the fastest graphics cards ever on the shelves. Considering its price matches the previous RTX 2080 generation, this is necessary. Suitable for any high-end PC build. Benchmark tests show that among many 1440p AAA games, the excellent RTX 3080 has achieved remarkable results, and its performance is better than the latest 2080 and 2080 TI generations.
This card has 20-70% improvement over 2080, but when we look at 4K games, we see even more impressive results. With RTX 3080, NVIDIA has changed the rules of the game and provided an excellent solution for ordinary gamers, professional consumers and even some professionals who want to build powerful and affordable gaming devices or workstations.
For pure performance, future technologies such as ray tracing, and excellent FPS counting, RTX 3080 is your best choice and easily win this category.
Initially, the two competitors in this category were GTX 1070 and RX Vega 56. In the battle between Radeon and Nvidia, RX Vega 56 led the GTX 1070 by a narrow margin. In other words, Nvidia is not satisfied with this. Only a few months later, the 1070 Ti was released and regained its leading position in the category, as it found that its performance was closest to the GTX 1080.
finally launched the RX 5700 XT, and of course Nvidia. Released the latest RTX graphics card. This once again changed the mid-range battle, because Nvidia ultimately did not get what it wanted. On the surface, the RTX 2070 is a better graphics card; it is equipped with future-oriented technology and offers better performance (only slightly). In other words, RTX 2070 is a more expensive component, which makes the competition between the two cards very interesting. RX 5700 XT provides consumers with value-for-money performance at an almost unbeatable price, and because of this, AMD has achieved success in this regard. The
GTX 1060 dominated this category for a long time, but then the GTX 1660 Super appeared. For a long time, NVIDIA has not been affected by AMD in this category, but AMD has bridged this gap with its Radeon 5600XT GPU.
Although the overall performance of Radeon 5600XT is better, it is only about 1015%, which is also reflected in the price. GTX 1660 Super is an excellent graphics card. Although both options can provide stable gaming effects, the economy of GTX 1660 Super is unparalleled. Compared with the just released GTX 1650 Super, AMD
RX 580 is now about four years old, and its architecture is outdated. Compared to the 580, the efficiency of the 1650 Super is incredible, and this newer GPU can produce better FPS results in many games. Nevertheless, the prices of the cards are very similar, which can cause some headaches when choosing the best entry-level card. Of course, the RX 580 used to be one of AMD's mid-range GPUs, but with the advancement of technology, we now see it in a very affordable position. The
benchmark results depend on the game, but the RX 580 is among the best in games that benefit from a large amount of VRAM. It is precisely because of the extra memory you get with the RX 580 that this GPU is among the best around today because, overall, it will give your system a longer lifespan.
The winner ultimately depends on your personal needs as a player. In some categories, the original performance has lost its top value, so add a little salt to each result.
However, it is clear that Nvidia is an outstanding winner in the graphics card market, providing enthusiasts and gamers with excellent high-end graphics cards. The RTX 3090 is now untouchable, and even the older RTX Titan has many shortcomings. Despite AMD’s progress in the GPU market,
Nvidia is a winner in most of the categories we outlined above. Although the RX series produced excellent performance, they could only compete with Nvidia's mid-range graphics cards.
When we look at who is the winner from a value perspective, AMD is beating its competitors through a variety of options to accommodate various low budgets. Good value for money is important to many people, and
As one of the weakest in the CPU and GPU manufacturing industry. However, the fact is that its benefits are considerable, and its existence helps prevent Intel and Nvidia's price and performance from stalling. We don't recommend buying company loyalty, but as long as AMD offers competitive options within your price range, you should consider buying from them.
