Best gaming video cards of 2020

Top graphics for any requests
Your future in computer games depends on the right choice of GPU. Save too much — get low FPS and freezes in fresh games. But not everyone can afford to spend too much. We will tell you which maps to pay attention to in early 2020.

AMD RADEON RX 560 + NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 1050 TI
Best entry-level maps
Both video cards will not allow you to run fresh titles on “Ultras”, but their capacity will be enough for classics, online games in 1080p or” minimalok ” in some modern games. For example, the RX 560 produces an average of 40-50 FPS in GTA 5 (with high quality textures and shaders), and the GTX 1050 Ti easily pulls “Tanks” – about 90 frames per second at maximum speeds. For undemanding gamers with a small budget, there is no better option to find.

Prices: AMD from 7000 rubles, NVIDIA from 9000 rubles

Key features of the GTX 1050 Ti:
GPU: GP107
Stream processors: 768 CUDA
Memory: 2 GB GDDR5
Memory interface: 128-bit
AMD RADEON RX 570
Best budget option
Foreign journalists call this map a “budget hero”. This characteristic is not accidental: the RX 570 costs less than 10 thousand rubles, but it gives a good performance. After overclocking, it shows almost the same results as the more powerful RX 580. So the closest competitor in the segment in the face of NVIDIA GTX 1050 Ti was left behind. But here everything is logical — the last one costs less.

Good middle man
The model runs on a full-fledged Navi graphics processor. Thanks to the RDNA architecture, the bandwidth of this card is sufficient to provide a high frame rate for fresh AAA titles in 1080p resolution.

Price: from 13 thousand rubles

Stream processors: 1,408 RDNA
Memory: 4 GB GDDR6

NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 1660 SUPER
Good performance for a small price
The latest GTX Turing GPU literally wedged between the GTX 1660 Ti and the standard GTX 1660 — it surpassed the power of the latter and approached the performance of the former. But its price is slightly lower than the others, so the choice is obvious from this three.

It turns out that an inexpensive card with the super prefix provides gaming performance of the GTX 1070 level, but also supports all the “buns” of the Turing architecture.

Price: from 16 thousand rubles
Best gaming video cards of 2020
Main characteristic:
GPU: TU116
Stream processors: 1,408 CUDA
Memory: 6 GB GDDR6
Memory interface: 192-bit
AMD RX 5600 XT
Perfect combination of price/quality
One of the best video cards that fit this description. It is based on the latest rDNA game architecture, which implies a cost-effective 7 nm process, new computing blocks, and multi-level cache organization. Simply put, power consumption is reduced and performance is increased (compared to simpler models). A good option for games in 1080p and even 1440p.

Price: from 20 thousand rubles

NVIDIA GEFORCE RTX 2070 SUPER
Best video card up to 35 thousand rubles
The RTX 2070 Super was created to surpass AMD’s latest Navi generation video cards. The new product received a slightly reduced version OF the tu104 GPU, with 2560 CUDA cores and a higher clock speed. Tests show that the performance is approximately on par with the GTX 1080 Ti, but it is much cheaper than this “classic”.

Price: from 31 thousand rubles

Main characteristic:
GPU: TU104
Stream processors: 2,560 CUDA
Memory: 8 GB GDDR6

NVIDIA GEFORCE RTX 2080 TI
4K at maximum speeds
Perhaps the RTX 2080 Ti remains one of the most productive consumer game-class accelerators to date. It is enough to look at the characteristics to make sure of its power (at least, for a record number of computing blocks).

In games, it bypasses the GTX 1080 Ti predecessor by about 25-30%. Accordingly, if you want to play in 4K resolution for at least a few more years, you can’t find a better video game. But it also has a serious drawback — the price is too high. In Russia, you will have to pay almost 100 thousand rubles for the top graphics. Well, for maximum performance, you need to update other PC components as well.
