    - Advertisement -

    The 1080p graphics card space is the most competitive segment of the GPU market. You’ve got NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 16 series cards as well as the Supers. Then you’ve got AMD’s Polaris based RX 570 and 580 still kicking, thanks to an aggressive pricing strategy. There is word on the street that AMD will be launching the Radeon RX 5500 XT for DIY space but can’t say anything just yet. Let’s get to it.

    • Memory: 4GB GDDR6
    • Memory Speed: 12 Gbps
    • Bus Width: 128-bit
    • Power Supply Requirement: 450W

    NVIDIA’s new GTX 1650 Super is a killer 1080p graphics card. It consistently delivers 50+ FPS across all modern titles at the highest graphics quality preset without breaking a sweat. The 4GB VRAM might sound like less, but it actually gets the job done. Now, if AMD were to launch a similar card with 8GB memory, then…

    • Price: Rs. 19,699 (Link)

    • Memory Speed: 14 Gbps
    • Bus Width: 192-bit
    • Power Supply Requirement: 450W

    The GeForce GTX 1660 Super turned out to be a much better GPU than I had initially anticipated. It performs mostly on par with the GTX 1660 Ti while costing just a bit more than the original 1660. It yields as much as 84 FPS in taxing games like Shadow of the Tomb Raider and The Division 2 while producing well over 100 frames per sec in shooters like PUBG and CS: Go, making it the GPU for choice for eSports fans.

    • Cores: 2304
    • Boost Clock: 1726MHz
    • Memory: 8GB GDDR6

    • Bus Width: 256-bit
    • Power Supply Requirement: 550W

    If you are one of the ten people on the planet who play at 240 FPS, then you will be needing a beefier GPU (as well as CPU). The AMD Radeon RX 5700 is just fit for the job. Although best suited for 1440p gaming, it will work just fine at 1080p 240 Hz. You don’t need to go for an expensive third-party card as the reference model doesn’t heat up as much. However, if you’d rather, then the MSI Mech is a viable option.
