Since the beginning of modern gaming, there was only two titans of graphic card industry, GeForce, and Radeon. Just like gaming society is divided into players that prefer console and the ones that prefer PC, both of these graphic card companies got a portion of the audience.
So if we are about to even think about comparing these two, let’s look at both pros and cons of each one.
Not many know, but there was a time when Nvidia and AMD graphic cards were barely distinguishable regarding their price. Both of them progressed much, and had many version that stood up only to be surpassed by its rival. Today we have the most advanced graphic cards on both sides with almost the same price attached to it.
So nothing much has changed price-wise. For example, you can get Nvidia 980TI for about $600on the market, while AMD’s equivalent R9 Fury X cost the same amount, give or take. There is, however, the noticeable performance difference in Nvidia’s version.
Performance and Speed
There is no doubt that Nvidia is stronger, more agile beast than its rival AMD Radeon. Nvidia’s champion, for example, has seven times faster memory speed than AMD’s Fury X. This isn’t something that is new to this rivalry and AMD is preparing their answer with next-get technology fueled by Polaris Architecture. Just like Nvidia’s Pascal architecture, Polaris will have much to offer and change in the graphic card industry.
It’s basically like a battle of good and evil in gaming, where a core of any gaming machine is related to the graphic card. And this battle is constant, but the fascinating fact about it is that we aren’t quite sure which one represents good and which one evil. Nevertheless, Nvidia has the hottest product on the market now, but who knows what we can expect with Polaris architecture for AMD.
The important thing to remember is the performance, and right now Nvidia Titan is way more advanced than Radeon’s closest equivalent.
Not to mention that you can get two Nvidia’s previous series card for the price of one Radeon’s latest series graphic card.
