2018 Best Value-Performance Graphics Cards

What makes us different?

Game Benchmarks at different Resolutions and Quality Settings

Changing Settings from ultra to high can result in huge FPS gains, with barely noticable difference in quality.
We Provide 4 different quality level benchmarks.
Sometimes, resolution has bigger impact than quality on performance.

We have sophisticated algorithms that have been carefully designed to produce 90% accurate estimates of gaming performance based on analyzing over 70,000 benchmark tests. Our benchmark results are measured agains the user preferred gaming resolution and game quality settings. Whereas other benchmark sites always measure at ultra quality, we provide 4 quality settings - ultra, high, medium, low - to help you discover the hidden value of your graphics card at different settings.

Advanced Bottleneck calculation

The CPU plays an important role in modern games.
Some games are more CPU dependent than others.
Our comprehensive comparison tool shows all modern processors head to head.

Our bottleneck detection mechanism is based on real tests on CPU's for over 10 years and analysis of current benchmarks agains many CPU generations to help you find the best value in terms of cost-vs-performance in your CPU choice that will be combined with your GPU. With over 500 popular CPU's for the last 10 years, you will certainly find the exact gains or loss impact in your CPU and GPU combination.

Benchmarks in Frames Per Second, Period.

For some games, FPS is acceptable even at low levels.
First Person Shooter games require a stable high FPS performance.
Unless you have a 120+ Hz monitor, more than 60 FPS is useless for you.

We always look for performance in Frames Per Second, not TFLOPS or GB/s or other specification theoretical numbers that are meaningless for the gamer. Everything is show in Frames Per Second, even the CPU Impact on performance, to help you see realistic benchmarks and better decide on your next GPU upgrade.

All together: The Complete Picture

There are some important factors to consider when buying a new GPU, like the power supply.
Sometimes, a true upgrade requires both a GPU and a new CPU.
We provide noise and temperature measures in our benchmarks to help you decide on picking a cool GPU.

Prices, Power Requirements, Heat Levels, Noise Levels, Performance in 1080p, 1440p, and 4K, CPU Bottleneck, and game quality settings are all factors that affect the decision and we ensure that all of this information is at hand and provide your with our recommendations. Our Comparison tool is comprehensive blend of the above factors and guaranteed will help you in finding your best gaming PC build.
