Graphics Card Madness

Posted by Admin On 3:40 PM 0 comments


I came across an article on Tom's Hardware that may shed light on your next video card upgrade or when you're just simply out on the market for a new system. They compiled a comprehensive list on the most popular video cards around from the Riva TNT / ATI 7000 era to the current 9800 GX2 / 3870 X2 behemoths. They called it the "Graphics Card Hierarchy Chart". Quoting TH:

"You can use this hierarchy to compare the pricing between two cards, to see which is a better deal, and also to determine if an upgrade is worthwhile. I don’t recommend upgrading your graphics card unless the replacement card is at least three tiers higher. Otherwise, the upgrade is somewhat parallel, and you may not notice a worthwhile difference in performance."

So check out the chart here. Or view the whole article here.
